Stills: ‘How’d Dey Do Dat?’ Day
Grandpa’s House, a traditional handcrafts store located on Oak Grove Road in Red Boiling Springs, was home to the 9th Annual “How’d Dey Do Dat?” Day on Saturday. The festival features vendors who specialize in old-fashioned handcrafts, such as basket weaving, pottery, quilting, carving, canning, open-air cooking, and blacksmithy. There is also live music and wagon rides throughout the day.
Grandpa’s House is a building located on the Ritter farm, which has been in the Ritter family for several generations. Grandpa Ritter (George Dewey, 1898-1971) is now honored in memory with the little store, which is owned and operated by Edna (Ritter) Davis and her daughter Rita (Davis) Watson.
The store is open Fridays and Saturdays, 10-4, but appointments can be made, and in general, visitors should just knock on the door of the main house, because someone is usually at home, Rita says.
