Only one week left to Win a Doll..please check September 10th post for details!
Today we went into Victoria to check out the Sunday Market on Government Street to see if it could be a potential vending spot for Bamboletta next summer. I’ve been checking out all the different markets to see where I might ‘fit’ next year. I really liked the Moss Street Market, which is more of a Farmer’s Market, but I’m not sure how I’d do there. Farmer’s Markets can be tricky because most people are there for produce. The Vancouver Farmers Market that I did this year was great, but most of my sales where from people knowing I was there.. either they were past customers or read the blog. Anyhow, I think I’m going to try today’s market next summer. I was most fortunate to run into one of my FAVORITE Etsy sellers Hollyhawk selling her wares there. Holly is super nice and I felt like I got a good low down on how the market operates. I like the hours and I like that you get lots of tourists going through. There isn’t any produce just artisans and some really great ones at that. Isadora Clothing was there as well..her dresses and tops are so very flattering and stylin’!
I bought a very cute wallet from Hollyhawk, that I’m giving to myself as an anniversary present (I can’t load up a pic.. not working!). It’s been 6 years (!) today that we’ve been married. John and I are so ridiculous about things like anniversaries and Valentine’s day type of events, it’s kind of a non event. I think it’s because the kids just demand so much of us right now..especially little Jasper- who last night had John utter these words..’this isn’t a way to live a life ‘. We just about doubled over laughing so hard, I think you had to be there.
This is just a reminder to anyone who is thinking about ordering a custom doll. I’m almost ‘maxed out’ for Christmas dolls, so if you are thinking about ordering one, please do so soon! Thanks so much 🙂
I have to include a picture… this was the weekends work that John and I did. It’s all prep for the next 10 days. The other picture is of wool I dyed this weekend drying in frount of our fire. Lol, it was a total Little House on the Prairie moment.
