Today was market day and I decided to change the colour of the top drape for my booth. A lot of people have been complaining that the white is too bright in the sun in the afternoon - now that we finally have sun here in the northwest. I had a lovely white on white brocade top drape, but if it is too bright it will put the customers off. I really like this plum colour, and I used it for the first time today, and of course someone had to drip grease on it in two places - grrrrrr!!!! I don't have time to wash it before tomorrows market, but I can turn it around front to back - sure hope the grease comes out.
The other pictures are of the other market stalls before all the customers arrive - and it looks like I caught someone in the process of just setting up.
The flowers are sold by the lady next to me - The Cookie Lady - she makes the most delicious cookies, and is my downfall. She also brings fresh cut flowers in the summer, and I spied a lovely purple bouquet that would have looked great on my table, but by the time I had my wallet out someone had already bought it - drat! I'll have to be quicker next week.
Have a good weekend everyone.
