500 & More photos from the Sale

Wow.  This feels special. I was surprised when I started to make this post. I happened to notice that I have 499 posts already.  That means this will be 500! I think a giveaway is in order but I am not prepared at the moment. So keep watching.  I will figure it out and make an announcement probably the week after Thanksgiving. (An American Holiday that will be on November 25th this year.)

Meanwhile, the actual reason for this post is to share some of the other photos from the sale.

Our minister's wife, Rita, is a lovely and talented lady. She sings, plays guitar and does fiber art.  Yes, she is a weaver.  Her works have been juried into some very nice shows. Here are some pictures of her work.

This last picture is a close up of the weaving.  I adore her work, but it is all women's apparel so I am out of luck. 

You may notice that Rita is not in these pictures.  There is a reason for that.  You see,  Rita had another commitment on Saturday so she got a helper to run the booth for her.

Another vendor, who was next to me, is a fantastic nature photographer, Dave Burks. Dave has a natural eye for composition. He is also a close friend so it was great to have his booth next to mine.
Dave prefers to be behind the camera so he isn't in his booth either.  Be sure to visit Dave's site and see his great work. 

And of course no church sale would be complete without FOOD! The church ladies had lovely baked goods that they were still putting on the table as I was taking pictures. 
Kimber gave me a lovely smile - but oooh...look at those cakes!!! (Don't look now, but there is Dave in the background -in the white shirt. Shhh...don't tell him I put his picture in.)

Mmmm.. and canned goods are nice too.  I think these are some type of pickle.  There was something for everyone. 
And to round things off, let's have a couple more of the outdoor pictures. 
A close up of the Japanese maple that I showed you in the last post. 

That glorious texture would make a great fabric print. 

Peace be with you.

I do craft markets in Central Victoria, Australia. Nice to see that people on the other side of the world do much the same things! I will post some photos of our next markets this weekend, then you can see what we get up to. I sell decorated pencil boxes and tissue boxes decorated with my own artwork, but want to branch into patchwork supplies as they are hard to get in this neck of the woods! Also Accuquilt!
