EXCEPT for a freak injury…
it was a good –but busy– week getting last stuff finished and checked off my list for the Main St Market.
Regarding the Main St Market…
it poured on and off while I tried to load Thursday.
It poured AT the Main St Market Friday before, and in part, while folks arrived to unload and set up. It was a mud pit.
It became a pouring thunderstorm by 4:30 the morning of. Bf wanted to just quit and go home—I was feeling much the same, but just felt like I HAD to try- the expenses would be TOO much of a loss.
This is the only picture I captured at the market—and, btw, we did finally get a small break in the weather -but halfway through. Bummer.
Nothing ever really got set up as we would have in normal circumstances. Most things had to be protected under just one of the tents in case the sky let loose on us –again. Which it looked like most of the time.
~The morning of, I hit my injured ankle on the trailer hitch, knocking the breath out of me and sending me into tears. It was a rough day- period.
Oh the perils of an outdoor market—sigh.
No vintage–antique–painted furniture sold for either me or bf—and didn’t seem to for (m)any of the other vendors. No one seemed to want to tackle that in rain and mud. BUT, we sold a lot of “smalls” and those saved us!
*And having a Square card reader for credit cards was incredibly helpful too!
Here’s my s-i-l‘s van loaded up (literally). . .
So MUCH to tell, and
MORE of the unsold projects to show. . .
I know-I know, looks crazy, right?
