Welcome To My Town - Thomasville, Georgia

Happy Veteran's Day! If you have read my "about" section, you know The Polka Dot Store.com is run out of my home. Running The Polka Dot Store out of my home gives me flexible hours and more time to be creative. I love my life and where I live. Today, I would like to start a series of posts sharing with you the unique things about the town I live in. Welcome to Thomasville, Georgia!

So, where is Thomasville, GA?

As you can see from the map, Thomasville is located in southwest Georgia about 10 miles from the Florida state line. The closest cities to us are Tallahassee, Florida, Valdosta, Georgia, and Albany, Georgia.

One of the many things Thomasville is known for is  its annual Rose Festival and Flower Show that has been held in the Spring (April) for the past 93 years. Here is a link to the 2015 Rose Festival. The streets downtown are blocked off and there is a parade, dance, arts & crafts, flower show, etc.

This is just a little introduction to "my town". Now for a look at one of the things I have been working on this week for my Etsy Store, Monogram Elegance :

A set of six (6) organic cotton washcloths with a cute pink owl applique. I would love to have your comments on the following question, "Should I also list this set on The Polka Dot Store website ?".

Hug a veteran today and tell them how much you appreciate their service!
