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.
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.
