Phew, it has certainly been awhile since I've updated and for that, I apologize. Things have been kinda crazy but I think I can say with certainty that it's all been good stuff. As most of you know, though I guess I never made a formal announcement here, I moved into the Adjectives Market in Altamonte at the beginning of January. It was definitely a learning experience to say the least. It was kind of a bummer not to be able to do the local markets and such at the time because I really felt like I kind of lost touch with people, customers, etc. which is obviously the most important part. So, now a short 7 months later, I have officially moved OUT of Adjectives Market. It seems they are going through their own special set of changes so I think it was obviously a good time for everyone to part ways as friends.
Now for the fun stuff! I'm jumpin' right back into it and this weekend, July 31st from 1:00-5:00p.m. I will be setting up shop in the Milk District for the Milk District Market 3! While I've done more than my fair share of hanging out there, I've actually never set up at an event in the Milk District so I'm super excited! It's always a good time over there and I'm really looking forward to checking out some of the fellow vendors. It's looking like it's going to be a really cool line-up.
Then coming up next month on August 27th, I will be yet again setting up at the Big Bang Bazaar at the Central Florida Fairgrounds! This will be my 3rd time in this show and it is always such a massive event and so much fun! There are about a bazillion vendors packed under one roof and if you're one of the first 100 people in line you get a giant swag bag full of goodies from basically every vendor in attendance so that's not too shabby either!
Aaaaaaaaaaand totally unrelated to the shop whatsoever but solely because I'm a huge fan of gratuitous pet photos, we're fostering another pup! Poor old man is 12 years old and was unceremoniously dumped at a Tampa shelter. Literally, it was down to the wire and I saw his photo maybe one day before he was a goner. Phew! We definitely don't have the room (we have two other SharPei foster failures that we couldn't bring ourselves to part with) but I couldn't just NOT do anything. I have a gigantic soft spot for senior animals so I went for it and he is THE sweetest guy ever.
Hooray!!! Everyone meet Burt Reynolds!!
