There was a new event happening in Greenville this weekend, one that seems to have claimed a lot of traffic for its debut. The Gathering at Garst, as the name states, was held at Garst Museum Saturday and Sunday.

Vendors braved the heat and set up around the perimeter of the Museum, armed with their wares, fans, and plenty of bottled water. The heat did not seem to effect the number of people who wanted to see just what this was about, however. And with a reason, there was much to see and even more to be amazed at.

Antiques were aplently, as well as many different types of handmade crafts. Some of these crafts included normal items made abnormal- such as necklaces made out of Scrabble Tiles or Dominoes. Feathers, painted with intricate drawings and designs, were for sale, as well as jewelry and paintings.

Entertaiment was not short, either. There was a walking storyteller who made his rounds through the many vendors to tell his stories to listening participants. Live entertainment was also available throughout the day, with different types of music to satisfy everyone’s tastes. Carriage rides were running for those who wished to cool down with the breeze and have a chat, if only for a moment. Face painting was available for the children.

Across the street, the Council House was also open for people to walk through, and visitors could experience first hand the carving of a canoe.
   
While the event only lasted for two days, it’s safe to say that many people were intrigued enough to remember the time spent here was truly memorable.
