A day at the fair
Posted May 12, 2014on:
Last friday was market day, a fair that takes place every year before mother’s day. This is my second time attending as a vendor, I love the atmosphere of the place. I found a great location between two trees with a lot of shades, set up my table, then spent the day chatting with people passing by, other vendors, and friends who dropped by to visit.
There was a lot of vendors at the fair, and if you like jewelry and accessories, this is definitely the place to go. I could have spent all my money on rings, bracelets and necklaces, there was so many. I didn’t move from my chair because I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist all the bling bling.
I had brought a lot of items, such as my kokeshi figurines, plushes, mother’s day items such as flowers, brooches, hearts, and coasters. I didn’t have enough room to put everything on the table, but I was able to replenish through the day.
Most of my animals and kokeshi dolls are gone, I do miss them a little, you get attached to the things you make. It was such a great day, even though I burnt my nose in the sun, it was worth it! One student bought one of my French doll, a little guy with a striped shirt and a beret, for one of her friend who is a French major. She was really excited about the gift, and later on I got a visit from her friend. She was carrying the little doll in the back pocket of her backpack. I thought it was so cute, I asked her to pose with it for the camera.
This was so much fun, I will definitely go back to the next market day event in December. I better start making more items for the next fair now that most of my items are gone!
