the handmade holiday market last weekend at the hotel was incredibly fun. some of the biggest hits were joan's jams, shelly's bracelets, and pam's soaps. it started snowing (our first of the season!) on saturday afternoon, which seemed to send shoppers scurrying home... but then on sunday, travis and scottie brought in some instruments, and barbara lent her amazing voice for some soulful impromptu harmonizing... for a few moments it was like we were in a craft club time machine, back in the 70s.. or what i imagine the 70s must have been like (i was kind of small to remember much..)
anyway, it's starting to feel like a real community around here... after sitting together and drinking tea and crafting all day, people feel like family. so we are excited for the market redux next weekend, when temps are supposed to be back up in the 50s!
this week, along with trying to stay warm and well, i'm listing some new pretties in my shoppe, and marking down some things that need to get on to their new homes..
