Local bakers Lyndell and Kathy Payton set up shop in front of their Main Street home to offer customers their tasty home-baked breads. “Usually we sell at the Farmers’ Market,” said Kathy Payton, “but we thought this would be a good opportunity to show what we have.”
Kathy Payton said business had been steady all morning. “We’ve had no big influx of customers, but one, two or three at all times. We’ve sold a lot of cookies. People are traveling and like to snack while they are on the go.
Organizer Debbie Spencer said, “Cadiz once again outdid themselves, especially the section from Downtown Cadiz through Canton to the Lake Barkley Bridge. And don't forget, all the antique shops are offering special sales.”
Cadiz Antique Shop Operator Cher Loose of Loose Treasures said, “It’s much better than last year. People are out. The sun is shining and people are having fun. It’s like one big party.” Loose said that some of her customers hail from Springfield, Ill. “We had someone in from Japan, but that was before the sale. People have seen the brochures for the sale. They did a phenomenal job promoting this year.”
Lori Pingston visited Cadiz and the sale from Adair, Mich. “I’m looking for a Puss n’ Boots Creamer and my husband is searching for an antique fishing basket. This is our first time in Cadiz, and it is a very nice town. Coming from a large city, we love small towns.”
