I finally made it to the Farmer's Market with all my cards and stuff to sell, I was all excited to be there with DD (Sam took the boys to work). Amanda even made some of her own cards to sell. She's so funny. So we get there, set up and wait.....and wait.......and wait for customers. There were vendors, but no customers. I asked around, and people said they didn't know what was going on, usually people are all over the place. So about 3 hours in, I start to pack up. One lady sees me, and comes over to buy the mini comp. book she liked. It's $2. Amanda says, "Don't you want to buy one of the cards I made?" So the lady looks at her options, and she's like, "Oh, those are so pretty!" (But I don't really think she's going to buy one.) So I made her an offer she couldn't refuse. I said, "How about if I sell you that little book for one dollar, and you can buy one of Amanda's cards for a dollar?" "Oh, that would be great!" she says. So I gave Amanda her dollar, and then she managed to get my dollar from me to go buy a great big stalk of sugar cane! We spent every dime we earned!! So as I was loading up my van, another vendor says to me, "They're having the Gopher Hill Parade downtown, that's where all the people are!" Sure enough, as I go home, I have to take a detour becaue all the streets are blocked. At least I'm not the ONLY one who didn't know about the parade! So now that the parade is over, I'm going down to the market again this morning to see what happens. Wish me luck!
