We were really looking forward to setting up shop at Old Settler’s Music Festival, just south of Austin on the Salt Lick BBQ property. They have kept this show intimate but stacked with great music for the past 27 years – and we were so lucky to be a part of it for the first time this year.
Although we had never sold at a music festival before, we figured this would be the perfect one to test the waters and see how we’d do. We ended up getting the most picturesque spot under this beautiful oak tree, in perfect view of the main stage with the most ideal weather you could ask for – seriously. We chatted with some amazing people, I mean really amazing… from locals who have attended since it began, to super talented musicians like the ladies from Della Mae and the lead Abider from Jeff Bridges and The Abiders. It was such a cool weekend and we can’t wait to load up our itinerary with more festivals all summer!
After spending a few more days in Austin, we headed back west… with a pitstop or two along the way…
One of our favorite pitstops this time was Tombstone, AZ. Such a cool, historic old town that was home to wild west legends like Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday. We went to the infamous Boot Hill Graveyard, which is the burial ground for the men who were killed during the famous shoot out at the O.K. Corral. There were lots of other graves there too, with carvings and sayings like this one above… all from the 1800s and early 1900s.
What a trip.
And then, we were back on the road. It felt like home crossing back into California. Now, we’re prepping for back to back weekends at Artisanal LA and Unique LA both in downtown Los Angeles… we hope to meet you there.
