Market Phair

Yesterday, I set up my booth at a small parking lot venue downtown, to see if I could shrink my massive tie-dye inventory a little. There were about 8 vendors there, and we were taking advantage of the foot traffic from the local Farmers' Market. There was a music festival going on at Heritage Square in the afternoon as well.

Here is my booth:

As you can tell by the position of the clothes, the wind was doing it's thing, but I had weights to hold the canopy down. Don't know if you can see it, but there is a pink plastic bag at the base of the clothing rack. When I went to put the rack together, I discovered that one of the castors was missing! Found it later in the garage. Then, when I put up the canopy, I discovered that one of the plastic connectors on the top had broken, but later found some duck tape in my supply bin, so I used it to hold the cross-piece in place. Then.... THEN, my almost new folding chair broke! Luckily, we were set up in the parking lot of a restaurant that has some patio furniture set up outside, so I was able to borrow one of their chairs, or I would have been standing all day... too much!

Here are pix of a couple of gals who came by and 'Hoop Danced' using hula hoops, while a young man was beating a drum... very cute!

The gal on the right was really into this... next time I need to figure out how to use my video on my camera!
Well, after a slow morning, things picked up and by the time we broke down at 3pm, I had more than made rent, and plan to do it again July 5th.... shades of yesteryear!
