Sweet Tea’s Soaps & Stuff participates in MANY events during the year. This gives us the opportunity to meet our customers face-to-face and show off all our new creations. I’ll list the festivals as the time approaches. Here’s what we have to share so far!
Our 2018 Season …
COMPLETED! Indie Spring Spectacular – Athens, GA – April 14th – 15th. The sunny Saturday had all the shoppers out in abundance but predictions of 100% chance of rain on Sunday had us packed up & gone at the end of the day. Good call – there was no a moment of Sunday that wasn’t wet. Great folks & a good first event of the season.
COMPLETED! Southland Jubilee – Greensboro, GA – April 21st. Another great year at this event. It’s one of our regulars & it’s better every time!
COMPLETED! Braselton Antique Festival – Braselton, GA – April 27th – 29th. After trying to set up at our assigned spot, it became evident the lay of the land wouldn’t work. So the awesome organizer (Donna) got us moved pronto! Kudos to our fellow vendors who literally picked up our tent & walk it & all of our goods down the street. We had a great time & brisk sales! This event is a keeper!
COMPLETED! Statham Antique Festival – Statham, GA – May 5th & 6th. This was a “first” for Statham & the Statham Business Association did a fantastic job in making it a success! The predicted rain stayed at bay the entire two days & it was such a great site to see all the shoppers wandering in & out of the antique & vintage stores as well as around the many vendor booths on the road. Can’t wait for next years event!
COMPLETED! Arts in the Park – Suwannee, GA – May 12th. From being greeted by helpers upon our arrival who transported our tent & all of our goods to our assigned location & then doing the same in reverse at the end of the day … best event so far! The entire day was beautiful & the music, food vendors, weather & shoppers were awesome!
COMPLETED! Vintage Market Days – Lawrenceville, GA – June 1st – 3rd. This was the 2nd year for this festival & it was wonderful! Great organizers & fellow vendors!
COMPLETED! Statham Sunflower Festival – Statham, GA – September 15th – The biggest Statham Festival to date! Big crowds & a beautiful day!

COMPLETED! Braselton Antique & Artisan Festival – Braselton, GA – October 26th – 28th – Friday was raining too much & we abandoned ship before the festival opened. But Saturday & Sunday brought out the sun & fun, making it a successful weekend!
