|Unable to have the banner I'd designed in Publisher, printed at an office supply store, I resorted to making this one around 11:00 pm, the night before my display.|
I'VE BEEN FREQUENTING THE East Lake Farmer's Market (ELFM) at East Lake United Methodist Church. . From a previous post you will know that I subscribed to picking up a half basket of fresh fruits and veggies as well as homemade goodies every other week. This week was different in that I got to display my own craft items. This is something I've wanted to do for a long time but couldn't get up the nerve. I enjoy being in the company of others who craft. I found it at ELFM. I was not so much interested in making money as I was getting up the gumption to actually get out there and experience the craft vending world.
Most books I borrow from the public library but I was so impressed with, The Handmade Market Place by Kari Chapin that I bought it. It is chock full of worthy information and tips. It seems that every question I had was answered somewhere in her book.
ON WITH THE SHOW

|All neckwear comes as a duo. A tee shirt scarf with an accompanying vintage necklace or a tee shirt necklace.|
The lighted compacts in the forefront have vintage photos also.
**BTW All of the photos I used are from a secondhand store. I don't know any of these people.

I only decorated 4 compacts. To see a close up of the others click the photo of the table above. I sold three of them. Below is a closeup of the first one to sell.
|This is the backside of one of the lighted mirror compacts|
|This is the front side of the compact. I used lace, photo and cut outs from thrift outlets. I call this one "Saturday on the Town."|
|I didn't have a picture of the pink one showing the lighted mirror when slid open so|
this is "On the Beach". Slide open to use the mirror. Slide the cover farther down to use the mirror lighted.
