First Market of 2012

5 Mar

The pet items table

It was a great first day back to the market.  It was pretty warm for the beginning of March, the sun made a few appearances and even though it is the start of JMU spring break, the market goers were out enjoying the day. 

Sadly, Rich was home, feeling a bit under the weather, but I was happy to set up in our new space for the year, stall #11.  This puts us about midway up the parking lot side of the venue, closest to the street, smack between Pam Green’s goat cheese and Mountain View’s cow cheese.   

Our Cosmic "display pony" hard at work

I was happy to introduce the new line of dog toys I have been working on, showcasing a full table of all pet items, including St. Patties dog scarves!  The new items proved to be just as popular as the returning items!  I was also reminded again that the dog collar rack is way too small, and hopefully Rich can construct a new one that will accommodate a much larger selection.  Hopefully that can be completed before next weekend because I did spend some time Sunday fashioning more collars, and they will not all fit on the current rack! 

I can’t help but be impatient for some of the other new items that we have in the works to be ready for the market.  I spent quite a bit of time rearranging the stand in my mind to suit the future additions.  Visualizing a new feng shui for the stand is a typical market past time.  It’s good to be inspired and geared back up! 

Here are some images from this Saturday.
