Summer Market Recap

We did it! We survived. It was a nice hot, sticky day. I had a lot of fun interacting with all the customers & I was so pleased with each sale. In all I had a great time & really enjoyed hearing the comments that people would make about my goods.


I love my family. They were such great helpers & so supportive.



Dylan designed these posters that will also be available in the etsy shop soon. They're awesome!








My super professional cash box.


And my view across the way. This couple had the right idea.


It was a great fair. Very well organized & there were lots of other really great, quality vendors. I am happy to have been a part of it. Thanks to all of you for so much positive support along the way. I 'm feeling that a giveaway is in order, because you guys seriously are the best. Watch for that soon. I have a lot of remaining stock as well so watch the etsy shop for updates.

On the drive out to the park, with the van all loaded up & kids in tow, Dylan told me that no matter what happened I should be proud of myself...and you know what, I am. :)
