|Matt and his mountain of white yesterday morning. I never thought he'd actually get it all done.|
|The only photo I managed to snap of our booth at SpringFest. It was too busy!|
|I was able to have a brief visit with my friend Chelsey whom I don't get to see much. Another perk of vending....friends come to visit!|
Sometimes the days vending can get long. Sometimes in the middle of winter it is hard for me to get fired up to build up our tie-dye inventory. In the end though, it is mostly a fun way to make a little side money, do a little camping and traveling, and spend time together. And *knock on wood* we've so far never lost money at an event. Not to say we've always cleaned up either.
I also like tie-dye vending because I like street and craft fairs in general. I like to see what the other crafty folks have been up to. Every show I find some item which absolutely blows me away. At SpringFest it was the creations of a woodworker from Red Lodge, MT. He had some pieces made from bocote wood which was so stripped it was incredible. We purchased a spoon and the cutest little butter knife that we think will be swell for backpacking.
Bartering is even better!!!

|I think it was the combo of stunning red hair and tie-dye outfit, but this gal was my favorite dancer of the day.|
Yesterday as I was walking home from work I spotted a young boy folfing in the park who was wearing one of the shirts we sold at SpringFest.
Here is hoping for sunshine. Tie-dye sells so much better in the sun. Not to mention I am happier. : )
