THE DAY AFTER MARKET IN THE GARDEN

This was the mannequin that greeted attendees of yesterday's 
Marche dans le Jardin.  We had a beautiful day, weather-wise.  The sky definitely looked a little iffy in the morning, but mother nature came through and we had sunshine and blue skies.  We also had 100's and 100's of people come to our event.  There were lots of times that walking was rather difficult.  We did have a limited amount of space, but, all-in-all, it was a smashing success for all participants.  In the end, there were 19 vendors and a huge range of lovely items for sale.  There was truly something for everyone.
Pillows, pillows and more pillows:  vintage Coronado postcards and a very large red and white polka dot pillow
Glossy black frames and my 'spider' stool
Sea star and beach glass necklaces
My pink boy mannequin serving as model for my necklaces
I shared my booth space with Valerie Hebert.
More of Valerie's felted children's sweaters and matching twirly skirts.

Old-fashioned pot holders.  I used to make these as a little girl and sell them door to door: 1 for fifteen cents, 2 for a quarter!  Now the loops come in much cooler colors.  Unfortunately, they are slightly more expensive these days.  Still, they are the best pot holders at any price.

I took over 100 pictures yesterday of all the vendor booths.  I will share them over the next week.  What I realized as I went through them this morning was I took no pictures of the actual vendors, only their stuff. 
 Oh well.

Everything looks fantastic! I had a chuckle when I saw the potholders. I just bought one of the looms (I used to make them years ago) and the loops were so small and tight that the potholder I made was more like a mini-potholder!! Nothing like they used to be!

Tamerie, you are just the best blogger! Thank you for posting these wonderful photos of our booth. You did such a better job than I of taking photos. It was a great day, and I'm happy I got to share it with YOU!
