Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living–a place to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee and enjoy good conversation about everything from handmade goodness to random happenings and events. Today on the blogs, the VIP and I are sharing our First Friday experiences. So, after you read my post, head on over to the Vintage Inspired Passionista for more photos and details.

Downtown Johnson City was the place to be this past Friday for the Corazon Latino Festival. The air was filled with the smell of delicious food and the streets were filled with festive booths and attendees.

Abby and I had a blast helping with the Happy Snaps booth sponsored by the Johnson City Press, and we also had lots of fun walking around and chatting with vendors and fans. I discovered a darling vendor, who also has an Etsy shop, Mossy Pocketss. Kara Williamson, creator and owner, makes handmade terrariums and fairy garden accessories.

It was so cool watching the Little City Roller Girls being the bulls in the running of the bulls through downtown Johnson City.
