Market Yesterday!

Yesterday I was back at the Battle Ground Saturday Market. It was good to be back! I missed the last day that I was supposed to work because of migraines, which is the same reason I've been missing so much on-line. Good news is that we're starting a new therapy for the migraines so hopefully I'll be back in the swing of things soon! I'll post about it on my other blog and leave you guys the link :)

Anyway, it was a slow day yesterday. We've been having terrible weather around here and it was the first sunny day in awhile! Lisa (another vendor) and I are guessing that people were too excited to finally be able to work outside to want to go shopping. It's also the weekend of the Rose Festival down in Portland, so we probably lost a lot of customers to the parade and the festivities down there.

Having said that, it was still a decent enough day. I was definitely hoping to do better, but I did good enough that I'm not going to complain. The thing that saved me was that I had a commission that I got paid for! It was a lot of fun to work on and I'll be posting about it in the next day or two.

This was the first time the hubby has ever spent the day at the market with me. He ended up pretty bored, but he handled it a lot better than I thought he would! (go baby!) and he even came up with several ideas to help me improve my display which was great :)

seems to be cruddy weather most places - and add on a festival in another location - ugh...glad to hear it went okay though. and for hubby to go with - very nice. bonus points for new ideas. I don't think mine would ever go....of course with the little guy he has a good out :P

Glad you had a good day though! We went to the coast and there weren't even many people there which is extremely unusual. I think the sun and graduations kept people busy elsewhere. It was nice of your hubby to go with you and help with suggestions! I drag my hubby to my shows too - the ladies love him so it all works out!

I hope they get your migraines fixed real soon!!!

I was wondering about your markets. My husband is essential to my doing art fairs because I need the physical assistance plus I don't function well without food and bathroom breaks! Glad you liked doing the commission--some artists hate them! Chicago area has icky weather too!
