THE LEAF LADY OF GALAX
Never heard of Galax Leaves? An elderly woman approached me one day selling them for the Leaf Festival that is held annually in Galax, Virginia. This is also the home of the Old Time Fiddler’s Convention….and not to be outdone….is the World’s Largest Flea Market in the neighboring town of Hillsville. Our favorite is the Victorian mansion that sits on the hill in Independence, VA, not far from Galax. We made friends with the owners who have worked hard to make this a special destination. See Davis-Bourne Inn
What does the Galax leaf look like? Here are the ones I purchased from the leaf lady.
