Another successful market is history. We always love visiting Minneapolis because of the shopping - Ikea, Mall of America, The Painted Porch Antiques and Terra Garden Center. All fun experiences and all so different. The Painted Porch was our first stop for garden junk for the booth. We scored a cool dragonfly wind whimsy, some plant stakes made out of old silver spoons and a great old cutting board. On our way north, we found Terra - one of the neatest garden shops ever. I bought some stepping stones with butterflies, dragonflies and bees on them for the first step off of my front porch (it's usually a mud puddle), some interesting bird feeders (one looks like a giant cattail) and a wonderful sunflower bird bath that we used in the booth to hold brochures. Ikea is always fun, too, for functional, practical office stuff and did not disappoint. A new outfit and lunch at the Mall and we were ready to go start setting up. I'll have a pic of the booth this weekend if I can remember to download R's camera.
Not too late to get in on this month's giveaway - a Square Pegs pattern. It was a hit at market. Just a Layer Cake and 2 fabrics makes it super fast and easy for the shops to kit and quilters to make.
More later, Lynne
