Saturday night I received my acceptance letter into the Fulton Street Artisan Market. I ripped open the envelope and was SO excited, then I immediately got to finishing all of my crafts I’ve been putting off! I’ve been to the market a couple of times this year and it was amazing to be a part of it this weekend.
My (first) favorite part was setting up the display of all of my stuff. I practiced on the kitchen table the night before. I also loved the people watching, and when people smiled at the quotes on my pillow or told me that they reminded them of their family. But, my favorite part by far was the culture and people at the Artisans Market. The two ladies on either side of me made gave me crafting advice and shared stories throughout the day. The older couple two tables down (who, when they are not knitted stuffed animals, are performing as santa and the easter bunny) stopped by often and insisted that they, “Still don’t know what we want to be when we grow up.” They even made a special stuffed animal for my sister and brought it to our house later in the day.
I met Theresa from The Old White House, who gave me so much insight and is the kindest lady. It made my day when she gave me her lavender laundry soap and fabric softener for my new house. It smells amazing! Make sure to check out her blog.
What a great day, and an amazing community to be welcomed into.
