The Braselton Antique and Garden Festival is in full swing this weekend and anticipates several thousand attendees. 

Over 100 booths feature antiques, collectibles, vintage jewelry, upcycling, do-it-yourself home décor, folk art, Americana, pottery, advertising pieces, sports memorabilia, furniture, local artists, chalk and clay paint distributors, woodworking, yard art, gardening, annuals, perennials, herbs and more. The event concludes from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today.

Beth Barton, owner of Sweet Tea’s Soaps & Stuff, was promoting her homemade soaps and lotions Friday in downtown Braselton as her booth continually filled with customers. 

“All of our products are 100 percent natural and homemade. They are also nontoxic, so there will be no harm done if a child or pet ingests anything,” Barton said. 

Sara Cauley of Winder attended the festival with her two young children and enjoyed getting ideas for her new home. 

“We are about to move to a new house, so I enjoyed browsing through the booths filled with beautiful antique furniture and home decor,” Cauley said. 

Matt Martin, owner and chef at One Blue Duck restaurant in Hoschton, has a booth with popular menu items and drinks. Martin said he hopes to “wow” attendees with his culinary skills. 

“We are offering a Lowcountry boil and bread pudding,” he said.
