can you find food, dancing, balloons, maracas, pan flutes, salsa music,
silk scarves, leather goods, sterling silver jewelry, ponchos and hand-stitched
dresses? The Festival Latino
The Festival Latino took place in Bicentennial Park of downtown Columbus.
It was much smaller than the Art Festival of the previous week, however
the prices were much more reasonable.
Silk/cotton hand-embroidered dresses, hanging seductively in a corner booth,
beckoned to me. The dresses fit better than the clothing I had seen
at the Art Festival and I was very impressed.
||One size fits all,
yet 2 strings gathered in the back of each dress, to cinch the waist, accentuating
the figure and pulling the material tight over the breasts. I have
only seen dresses like these in Colorado and, now, here. I was not about
to lose out on such a rare opportunity. No one would have a dress
identical to mine. The dresses are unique. I bought 2 silk/cotton
hand-embroidered dresses for $35 each, a steal for such workmanship!
