To Market, To Market, We GO!

Very exciting.
It's finally here.
Summer market time, that is.


My two favorite things about my business are markets.
1) the market time where I buy everything for the store, and
2) the markets where I sell everything from the store!

In this case, I'm talking about selling at outdoor markets over the summer. I do like the convenience of selling online, but nothing beats meeting people face to face and seeing the look of glee on their faces, as they walk away with a new treasure that I found for them.

My two favorite Texas markets are Wimberley Market Days and Austin's SOCO Market on first Thursdays. Very fun places and very fun people.










This coming Saturday (July 3rd) I will be selling at A Paris Street Market in Littleton, Colorado. Could the mere name of this market be more perfect for my wares?!



I was thrilled to find this market as I'm finding that there are very few shabby or retro inspired markets here in Colorado. (If I'm wrong about this, please email me and give me the skinny on some good markets...I'm in need!).

Ok...back to work. There is much to do before the weekend...sewing, ironing, labeling, dusting, wrapping...you name it. The excitement is building...

Come on out this weekend to the "Paris of CO" and say hello - we'll be there!

I wish we had more markets like this in the US - I was just awed by the markets in England and France!

Following from TTA - hope to see you at Dropped Stitches!

What fun! I love outdoor markets :] Makes me sad, though, to hear that there aren't very many here in Colorado.
