friday morning i woke up at 3 a.m. and was on the road to l.a. by 4. i wanted to stop at the garment district for an hour or so to pick up some more scarf fabric before heading down to the queen bee in san diego.
leaving that early saved me from hitting any traffic (other than a tiny bit in l.a.). my time in the garment district was successful and i was back on the road by 10 (all the shops didn’t open until 8:30-9).
i made it to the market just in time for set-up at noon and worked my tail off for the next 3+ hours setting up my booth. then the next few hours were spent walking around the market and the evening was capped off with an amazing concert with mindy gledhill. her music was the perfect mix of joyful, folksy happy music with mellow sing-songy lyrics – a great end to our night!
the next morning was back to the market and restocking my booth and then my friend joy came for a visit to the market (and brought my camera from home that i forgot!). i worked the checkout table for a few hours then had just a little time to look around before the market ended and the nuttiness of breaking down our booths started.
like i said, i forgot my camera the first day, so i didn’t have time for pics of every booth, but here are some of my favorites!
here’s my booth! the only non-iphone pic of my booth – oops!
