The view from back here


Sunday evening, feeling wiped out from a hot and humid weekend at the farmer's market. I don't think I'm giving away any trade secrets by saying that every market vendor I know also needs to take a big nap after a busy selling day.

I thought I'd give you a view from behind the scenes. This is how I view the market, from the quiet and safety of my booth. Here you can see the back side of some of my card displays and small framed etchings, a mug of green tea, the toes of my cowgirl boots where they are propped up for relaxation, some absolutely stunning roses from Plenty of Posies, the impressive display of organic vegetables at Sacred Seed Farm across the aisle, and a small swarm of people walking by. It's a very different view from behind the counter than out in the crowd...I would find it hard to survive the crush and furor of the market without my space back here.

Really nice perspective! I am reminded of when I was doing the Buyers Market. It certainly does look different from this side. Oh, and the "big nap". Most evenings after shows, I didn't even have dinner - just a bath and crash.
