Yesterday I experienced my first Pier Street Farmers Market and Art Fair, as a vendor, and it was so much fun! What a great crowd!
The sun shone for us, and everyone was happy to be out and about enjoying it after such a long winter, many of them with their Moms in tow!
It was such a treat to meet so many people excited about art, the environment and the community, and to see so much willingness to support these important facets of our local culture. It reminded me of all the reasons why I am so excited about what I am doing, and all the reasons I am doing it. Meeting so many like minded people, made me very proud to call this beautiful city home.
There is a lot of talent, and friendly faces at this market, and some exquisite craftsmanship and creativity at work. Some of my favorites were definitely:
*Buffalo Bob & Heather of Oyster River Rustic. This solid wood furniture oozes natural beauty and is bound to put a smile on your face! Check out their website for pictures!
*The elegant, unique and richly stunning work of
Pamela's Custom Jewelry. I totally fell in love with one of her fresh water pearl pieces. I didn't even know mother nature made pearls that shape! You'll find her at the Pier Street Market most Sundays - totally worth coming for!
