First Market

We survived our first market, and though it was like pulling teeth to find the wherewithal and inspiration to gear up for it, there were many positives. First off, we had stellar weather, despite the early morning rain storm that we awoke to. Secondly, people were happy to see us and we saw many friendly and familiar faces. And finally, we had a pretty decent day considering that we whipped things together at the last minute after our vacation.

All in all, I have to give the day a thumbs up, though it was not only hard work, but especially challenging considering that we had to hit the ground running right after our vacation. Oh well, I guess we never do things the easy way. Also, you'd think we knew the drill after two years of this, but we ran out of several important ingredients and had to turn people away, which is always disappointing. Then again, what is worse, running out of stuff, or having extra to take home?

The unpredictability of the market makes it a bit of an adventure that can be both satisfying and frustrating, but maybe that's the whole point, right? You just never know what life is going to throw at you, so you just have to go for it.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Eugen Marculescu for the pic.
