Hello Dear Friends,
It is already the middle of August. I have been setting up my Flower Stand each Friday since the first week of June at the Bruce Farmer Market.
I have learned several things during the last few months.
1. Patience ... June was slow ... the first part of July was slow ... I was feeling rather foolish. The flower market is not an easy one, simply because people can not eat flowers.
I had more than one Friday that I did not sell any flowers.
2. Work ... setting up for market is a lot of work. I have an EZ UP tent ... EZ UP ? not sure how they came up with the name.
I am so thankful my market manger gave me a tip on how to set up the EZ UP ... I am only 5'1" so this tip of how to get this tent up really helped this short girl.
3. Rewarding ... each and every Friday has been so fun for me. As different flowers come into season I have more and new choices to create bouquets.
The past week I sold out! I was so happy.
I also received my first order. A gentleman ordered a bouquet for his wife to celebrate their 26th Wedding Anniversary.
The Little Garden That Could ... has eight more Friday's left. My Autumn harvest is coming along well, I will be excited to share it with you.
A BIG Thank You ... so many of you have encouraged me when I was feeling wobbly.
