Uhhh!!! It can't be time to get up already !!!!  Yeah, it's that kind of morning for me.
As I hurriedly got ready,did chores and loaded the final items for market I seemed to get into the mood for the day.  We got to market about an hour earlier than usual and found a pretty good crowd already there to eat breakfast of biscuits, ham and sausage cooked on the old wood stoves outside in the parking lot of market.

Hubbie always takes his turn at the old stoves.

Good music filled the air as these folks picked and sang all day.
One of our vendors is a blacksmith and he brought his portable smithing tools for a demo.
We had great crowds outside and inside all day today.

Sales were great as evidenced by my table at the end of the day.
I also sold many of my sewn craft items today.
I forgot to wear my bonnet that I always wear but I remembered my apron.
This dress I have on has a lot of Curb Market history. It was made by a market vendor named Edith Taylor (still living but very elderly) for another market vendor named Doris Volkert (deceased). Doris wore this dress at every Old Timey Day for years before her death. After her death another market vendor, Nancy Ball asked for the dress to keep to remember Doris by.  When Nancy became ill she gave the dress to me and asked me to wear it in memory of both of these sweet ladies that had given so much to the success of the market over the years.  Today I wear the dress in honor of all three of these special ladies, Edith, Doris and Nancy, thank you ladies for all you did to make the market what it is today.
Such a simple dress with so many memories attached !!!

After making a couple supply stops on the way home I was ready to get off my feet for a while.
This evening was a beautiful fall evening,cool and clear with that special fall smell and feel. Great for taking another sunset walk for me.

And a great night for a driving lesson for g-son in Pawpaw's golf cart.
It was hard to get him out of it after he got started. So much that hubbie had to come get me to steer while he pulled it back up to the shed for another re-charge.
God's work is so obvious this time of year with all the beauty He created just for our eyes. Who could ever doubt His love.
Good Night and God Bless.

I would love to know more information about that market. What days, how often and where? I live in the NC mountains and would travel to see it.
