hello, hello! what a crazy few weeks it’s been. capping off with last weekend’s summer market show. to quote seinfeld, “mother nature IS A MAD scientist”!!!
i’ve been spending the past few weeks getting ready for back to back weekend shows. long, long days & weekends prepping everything, printing handouts, making price tags, hunting down display furniture…you name it!
first up was the petit parc show at chartreuse. this one is my favorite show of the year because it’s just plain fun! it ends up being a place for new & old friends to hang out with, grab some sangria (that stuff went FAST!), eat freshly made kettle corn being made fresh (you should have seen the get up they need to wear to make it!). the big star of the night though, hands down, was miss amelia…we all wanted to drive away with her!
and then the next weekend it was off to avon lake for the avon summer market. the venue itself is perfect…what can be better than having a market with the lake as a backdrop?? oh wait, that’s right…unless a giant storm hits! sadly that’s exactly what happened. after hours & hours of set up, the show had just started when this chaos-inducing thunderstorm hit with a punch. we all tried the best we could to ride out the storm but as you can see many vendors lost tents & products (including me) and my heart went out to everyone…the vendors, the shoppers and the organizers who worked so hard to put on this event. thanks to EVERYONE who offered a helping hand after the storm and for everyone who came out the next day!!
