Aaahhh!




The Flower Market was a success! And a lot of fun, too! I learned a lot, too! There are some REALLY serious vendors out there...just in out tent of 8 vendors, 3 travel pretty far most weekends to show their wares. The "jelly lady" and the "hat guy" came from Richmond, Va. and the "spice couple" came from Syracuse, NY...far and they had to spend 3 nights in a hotel. And just between you and I, jelly is where it is at...she made a bundle on jelly! Jelly!
The Market is a non-profit that benefits children's charities in Delaware. The Market opened on Thursday morning with a big announcement(think ringing the bell at the NY Stock Exchange)but, the crowd was filled with the beneficiary children, who were invited to enjoy the amusements gifted by the amusement company. It was so sweet, those kids were so excited! Rides, games, snow cones, cotton candy...they had a blast!
Friday is rained and rained and rained...we had fun in our tent! There was a worn path to the Starbucks tent...I had then run a tab for me!
Saturday was great! Cold, but the Market was mobbed so that means lots of $$$$ for the children's charities!
These are better pictures of my booth taken on Saturday morning before the Market opened...











I also did some shopping while at the Flower Market...check these CHICKS out...I bought Bravery Kits for my girls and niece. You need to read their stories. I had the pleasure of meeting all of them...UNBELIEVABLE! I also bought a belt, so cute, from some local gals. They are working on a website, I'll let you know when it is up and running... You will fall head over heels for there designs!

Let me see what else...
I am looking forward to starting all of the projects I have lined up!
I will be officially accepting "the job" tomorrow!
I have been tagged by Running Just as Fast as I Can, look for that tomorrow!
I going to make up the lost time at the gym!
I'll be listing the leftovers on Etsy sometime this week! Some really cute stuff!
I guess that is it for now!

I hope everyone had a nice Mother's Day...I did!

Your tent looks amazing! What a great cause you helped raise money for.

How lucky are you to have had the chance to meet those brave chicks! I just checked out their website and read their stories ... wow! I will definitely be purchasing some of their products as gifts.

Glad to hear you had a nice Mother's Day.
