I have been following a few blogs Here on Lumberjocks for quite a while now … these blogs are pertaining to the Craft Markets and those who attend..some are real veterans like closetguy and have many stories to tell…others like myself very much newbies….[I suggest you take the time and read his blog if you are interested in doing the market scene….] Last weekend I was at our local markets chatting with my good mate Ken… from Ken's Krafts Wedding Wishing Wells...

Sunday morning dawned into a beautiful day… a little cloud but that was good too… No rain… and not too hot… Got up before the sparrows and having loaded a few LLs and a table the night before was ready as soon as the coffee was made and I had finished showering and dressing… A quick set up and stood by for the onslaught… Ken very courteously let me have the middle table but did stick his butcher block table in the very front… There was a lot ...
