Before Olivia was born I had a booth at our towns Saturday mornings farmers market. We sold organic cookies, cakes, pastries and lots of my crafts. We were there for about a year and then as the time came for Livie to be born I took some time off. I said I would be back in a few months which kept stretching out until they became years. Olivia is now 2 and a half and I am going back! I could not bring myself to leave her before because for the first two years she was nursing and does not like Momma to leave her, then it was one thing or the other.
Iam so excited but also a little scared! What if it does not go as well as before. What if people do not like our goodies anymore or we just don’t do well??? I would not expect even one customer to still remember who we are though for a while anytime I went shopping at the farmers market customers and booth owners would always ask us when our cookies were coming back? Would you please say a little prayer for me?
So I had to get my booth back together. We used to sell under the name The Green Market but as I have said before, the word green makes me feel, well, green. It is so abused by every single person who wants to exploit it. After thinking for a while we are calling it ORANGE. Haha, its the new green! It stands for organic, renewable, artisan, natural, gourmet and eco-friendly.
Of course the orange also gave me a jump start on decorating my space with orange as the main color. I am sewing like mad and starting friday I am making lots of cookie doughs (secret to really good cookies is to refrigerate the dough for at least 24 hours) and lots of other things. I will try and share with you along the way as much as I can.
Here are the fabrics to make the aprons, tablecloths and basket covers and some other neat things.
I want it to be happy and cheery
bakers twine is my favorite (it is really expensive though so I am working on making it myself) stay tuned for more on bakers twine. I use it to tie around jams and packages.
and then as I was on my way out… I ran into this fabric
