I survived my first Gore Bay Farmers' Market this morning. It was cold, very cold. The sun would come out briefly, the wind would die down just enough to tease, and there were moments of warmth. But, mostly cold and windy. Much too cold for the end of September. But, not too cold for wool!
Here I am, bundled up in many layers, with some of my offerings.
In spite of the cool temperature, it was mostly a wonderful experience. The other vendors were very welcoming, many old friends were there shopping, and I introduced myself and my products to many new faces. And, that was mostly the point. To put myself out there and let local people know about what I do with this 'yarn thing'.
I had all the things I needed, dear husband helped me set up and tear down, but there were times when a second person would have been helpful. I can see that a busier market, like in July, will require more help.
I've already walked the Dusty puppy and the remainder of the afternoon is going to be spent relaxing and getting warm again. I need some serious couch, comforter, and converter time!
