FARMER'S MARKET

This past Saturday, I participated in my first Farmer's Market. Our little rural town holds a Farmer's Market every Saturday from 8:00 to 1:00 that runs from the beginning of May through the end of October.

This is my booth.
I took my St. Patrick's Day wreath, and modified it a little so it could be used as part of my display. I added the burlap bunting and the paper dragonfly.
All of the items I used for displaying purposes, I found at local thrift stores. This tray I found for $1.29. I spray painted it and added the little white vinyl scroll embellishments. I am using it to hold some wood bead / fabric bracelets and felt Dahlia brooches.
I'm selling Cookie Sheet Perpetual Calendars. They're lined up in a file organizer.
I'm also selling Mod Podge Frames and my Purses.
This green plastic tray was also found at the thrift store... I just added the white vinyl polka dots.
I spray painted this thrift store bowl.
Other than the wreath, I wanted to showcase my company's acronym one other way, so using black vinyl, I put it on a Target white melamine plate, and then added some rolled fabric flowers.

And of course, there's the White Paper Flower Bouquet that I had posted about previously.

So this is why, as of late, my posts have been so few and far between. I was getting everything ready for my Farmer's Market Debut.
