Market Report 1

First off, I'll apologize for the crappiness of the photos. I mostly set my camera to auto and turned off the flash. I've had mixed luck with photos over the years and I just hoped this would work out. There's tons of really great photos out there (here's new market photo links today, www.tulapink.com and http://blog.heidikaisand.com/2008/10/29/luscious-colors-and-patterns.aspx?ref=rss)
Second, I just want to say that even though market is a TOTAL BLAST crammed with fun and creative people, it's a business event. I really admire the people who came to vend and the people who came to shop. Attendance was down this year due to the sad state of the economy. I hope you'll all support the businesses that attended. They're the ones that want your business and have shopped for the latest and greatest to fill their shops with. I had a whole little talk in my head about it, but it's not coming out nearly as eloquent.
Anyway it's time for photos.. I don't have to check in for jury duty again till 11, so I need to get this done and get dressed. If I'm not ready then I'll be temping fate and have to go in at 1pm.
Here's the amazing new Latebloomer Quilts Sign. I just love it so. Elizabeth has a far better photo of the booth on her blog. But I don't know that she's featuring her sign. She's at home filling orders like crazy. Anyway those lights are so cute, little eyelet covers, sweet.

More cute stuff.

Here's the booth in its glory. Elizabeth was a busy girl, she had FOURTEEN new patterns and a free pattern from Lecien. Links on that later with the requisite photos.

Here's some out of order shots of Jackie's booth. You know how we love those girls. Their look is a little different this year, but no less charming.


I could have laid here all day. Seriously people, market can be exhausting and wouldn't you feel like a princess?

Here's my fav sisters. I love them so much, they're so sweet and talented.

How sassy does she look? Gosh Tamara, you looked amazing and I wish we lived closer so we could all be having delightful crochet trimmed garments. But not just because I want stuff but because seriously, I love them so much.

Ok, I need to stop tempting fate. I have a lot more to come, I took 400 pictures and I'll have stuff to give away.
So see you soon peeps, I've missed you! xo

Your pictures came out great! I can't believe you got 400. I managed only about 250! I thought that was a lot. I am with you support those businesses that attended. Go out and grab yourself some fabric

I hope this isn't in response to people like me being there. Hopefully I can stir up some excitement on my blog, enough to get people to buy things. That's the point, right?

Your commentary is always the best. The pics aren't bad. What fun. I heard market attendance was down by 60%! Yipes. I know only a couple stores were there this time. The new one 5 minutes from me went. So I can't wait to see what they ordered.
