Selling Books at the Damariscotta Pumpkin Fest Part 2

Well, I did it. I sold every single one of my books! Of course I had to send Hubs to film the pumpkin drop (onto a pink car), but the books are gone.

Here are some photos of the pumpkins – some of them you saw half completed in the previous post.



Here’s a couple of views of a father and son carving an octopus and a sea turtle on one pumpkin!

Miss Piggy!






There was a matruska doll.




This peacock was next to my table.

A crab!

We had dinner at a restaurant in East Boothbay. There was a full moon rising over the water – beautiful. Every one had the two lobster dinner, but I opted for nage, a wondrous mix of lobster, scallops, clams and mussels in a creamy lobster sauce. Yum!

    1. I think I may have sold 80 or so. Of course I pay some of the price to Sherman’s. an independent books store that carries my books. I’ll maybe post a bit more about that later, with yet another pumpkin carving!

  1. Hello 🙂

    Found your blog through Suzie’s M&G party 🙂 I visited Damariscotta about 20 years ago. One of my friends used to live there and I had such a great time there. Thanks for sharing this… reminded me of many many good souvenirs 🙂

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Cyranny! Glad you enjoyed the post. I’ll give you a visit, too. We plan to go back next year – what a great time and place to sell books!

      1. I still remember buying a bumper sticker for my dad there…. It said “Bumpah stickah for tha cah” and it still makes me crack up to this day 😉

        (sorry, my memory is fond of little things lol)
