new t-shirt, apron, goat cheese (chive feta, roasted red pepper and chipotle chevre), eggs (not pictured) and pak choi from BGF, and finally; radishes, spinach, onions and carrots from another vendor (oops, forgot to take notice of name)
After getting soaked by the rain, Maddi and I scooted up close to some buildings for shelter and were pleasantly surprised to find Market Days had moved! (inside the Kirkwood Hotel Building for local folks - across from Farm Boys Breakfast Burritos)
Mads and I skipped into the building and enjoyed browsing the 20+ artisan booths. I wish I could put into words the fabulousity of the creative ideas on display for sale in this building. You simply must visit if you are in town and check it out for yourself.
Remember this photo from last year?:
Just the most awshumness costume e-v-e-r!!!! Mads and I walked over to a booth and after looking at the artist's creations, I just had to ask her if she was the woman behind the granny square monster creation . . . . YES!
May I introduce Meg Corcoran of scribblenest (the beautiful lady in black)
I absolutely love meeting and chatting with these one-of-a-kind artists. I told Meg I wanted to spend a couple of days just hanging out in her brain so I feel what it was like to be so creative. She laughed and told me it would be nice to have the company ;)
I have to admit, I was not completely in the mood to go shopping with my girl today. Once I caffeine'd up and got in the car my spirits lifted. Maddi started talking about how excited she was to see all the booths so she could get inspiration for new ideas. Hanging out with Maddi is like a big blast of sunshine . . . . . you can't help but smile, nod and play along. I am grateful to have spent the day browsing, buying, laughing, skipping and road-tripping along with my Maddi girl.
