Sarah and I were blessed by another good day of sales, turnout, and weather at the farmers' market today. We are getting the routine down now after our 7th week of arriving at 5:30 am. It's always nice to have help from Dad or Jonathan setting up and breaking down the heavy stuff (we need to get some pictures of them soon!).
The specialty Farmers' Market soap I created just for this season has been a hit so far. The tag above shows that this soap features fresh goat's milk.
We were especially glad to see some familiar faces this particular Saturday--2 different Virginia blog readers showed up! Family friends from Harrisonburg came by to see what our market was all about and to patronize our booth. I think Joelle's colorful outfit matches Sarah's cupcake quilt. :)
Our second visitors were Mr. and and Mrs. H, who drove an hour to surprise us while they were nearby on a getaway. Two "strangers" in sunglasses walked up and inquired how much a bar of soap was--and I was thinking "this looks like somebody we know...?" Wait, it was our friends! Thank you both for coming and brightening our morning!
We enjoy seeing our regulars (yes, we are beginning to recognize certain market-goers), but when someone we are acquainted with arrives, it makes it even more fun.
