Our second year in a row at Coffee Break Fest in Stoughton, WI was a blast! We entered our booth late in the year, but we still had a good spot on the end with nice traffic. The other vendors were nice people with great wares. The nice people in back of us selling throw pillows even put up a shade cloth for us when the sun was beating down on us! We sampled outstanding coffee in this year’s lilac and purple mugs. Near the end of the day I tried to purchase a bag of coffee from Valentine Coffee Roasters of Milwaukee, but they were sold out. I was very disappointed. I will have to suck it up and either drive 45 minutes to Milwaukee, or buy online and pay shipping. It’s well worth it!
We strolled around the car show and saw some old and new beauties. I am not only amazed by the shapes and curves of older cars at car shows, but also by the wide range of colors they paint them now. There isn’t just blue, there are 10 shades of blue and each one prettier than the last. Yellows, purples, reds – there are some wild colors that truly compliment those cars.
I always fall in love with the older models. One of the oldest models at Coffee Break Fest was a Model T Ford. It is not only the neatest car, it reminds me of the Model A my dad always had when we were growing up. The A was not in as good condition, so it’s nice to see what it would have looked like.
When we weren’t dreamily gazing at gorgeous cars or sipping rich dark coffee, you could find us dancing and singing in our booth. They were playing swingin’ oldies music the whole day and it contributed to a fun nostalgic atmosphere. We will definitely be back for our third year in 2013!
