Welcome to small town America. Yesterday there were three vendors at the Dundee Summer Market. Do we get a prize for perseverance? Jennifer, the organizer has invited all the previous vendors to come next week, the last day, and is waiving the vendor fee. Whoo Hoo! We're going to celebrate the grand finale by having little treats and possibly a pizza party at closing. It's been fun to sit at this community event this summer. We need someone to stand on Hwy 99 with a bunch of balloons, or a cardboard guitar drawing people into the street! Sometimes small is best...it's not a festival, and it's not really a "Farmer's" market. It's more of an artisan and non-produce type market. I've seen jewelry, gift cards, pottery, processed food like jelly, chutney, vinegar, oil, honey, tea, blue cheese dressing, and a wonderful musician, Larry Brown who plays guitar. My quilt crafts were colorful, but no sale! My 1910 New National hand crank sewing machine drew lots of comments, especially when I was actually sewing on it. I quickly explained that all the quilting is done on a computerized longarm machine. This is the quilting craft from one extreme to the other.
If you happen to be passing through Dundee next Wednesday, and it's not raining, stop in and take a chance on seeing some awesome vendors! If it's raining, keep driving through. See you next year! Thank you passers-by for your support.
