The Adventures of the Farmer's Market

 The Little Garden That Could
Takes on the Farmer's Market

Thank you  for the support of my new venture. I appreciate all the supportive comments regarding my set up, my flower arrangements and the simple "You Go Girl"!
Thank You!

As I type this up, I have two markets checked off.
Oh my, last week Friday, was a true adventure.

About 45 minuets or so went by after we set up the market. All of us vendors help each other get our tents up, and put signage out.
I finished putting my last touches at my stand, when the wind blew and knocked down all my flowers. Water spilled out of the vases. My free color books for kids got all wet! My tablecloth was soaked.  As I cleaned up, the Rusk County Sheriff pulled in and shared with us that a tornado watch had been issued. The Farmer Market was closed.
No Sales...but I did tear down and arrived home safe.

 Friday is here again! What adventure will the market bring this Friday?
 


Happy Weekend
Carla
