Missoula Saturday Market Opening Day
Opening day of Saturday Market was today. The morning started out cold. By afternoon the winds gusted thru making a mess of my table.
The photo of the gal in the apron is me. Mom made me the apron as a Christmas gift and it worked perfect. I really liked having pens in pocket and my cash was in a money clip right on me.
The other photos are of my dearest friend Rose. She makes jams and jellys and crochets and makes rag quilts. She is a true spit fire and I just adore her!
The young man is artist Brandon. He is our resident "flirt". He loves to spend his hours smiling at the ladies!
The last pic is my dear friend Jim who is a wonderful woodworker. He gives great hugs!
The season started out great. With the economy we all wondered how our day would be. I made a few dollars more than last years opening day, so I think the summer will be fine.
I made a ton of items $20 and under. I actually had 4 sales that were in the medium price range. That is an encouraging sign too!
Later in the year I will get some pics of a better view of the full market.
