Arcata Holiday Market Report
It was fun!! I think I need to do this one every year...
It's well run, the lady in charge is awesome and makes herself available all weekend. What a concept. It's put on by the city recreation dept so there are lots of kids volunteering and school bands playing. Just a fun atmosphere.
They had a little food stand run by the kids too. Everything was either $1 or $2. The brownies were awesome and we got two coupons for free coffee.
The Arts in the Afternoon program kids were selling silk scarves they made, which was neat.
I got to see a few friends and made a few trades for gifts.
I made money too! It didn't look good on the first day, but the second day was awesome and overall I did pretty well. Woo. They do need to advertise a little, at least on the community calendars... the crowd was pretty thin. But otherwise, it's a good one.
Ok, I gotta go to officegirl land now, photos and humorous anecdotes to follow...
