Freret Market Recap

Well, it's been a whirlwind few days in New Orleans, but I'm happy to report that the Freret Street Market went really well for me! It was hot as hell, and my poor girlfriend Fae (in bottom picture below) got really sunburnt, but despite the recurring threat of rain and some pretty strong winds, it ended up being a pretty nice day. Attendance was fairly strong (maybe not as crazy as September's, being the debut month, but still steady), and business was good. Plus the diversity of artists, farmers and flea marketers, all the great food, and awesome bands - it was a fun day all around. Big thanks to everyone who helped organize the market. I look forward to participating in it again - hopefully in December!

I was also happy to run into fellow/sister Etsians Kerri and Heather (rustchic, bayousalvage and nolasalvage), inexplicable confetti, and yabettasupadont. Plus I finally got to meet Mr. NOLA Rising, Michael Dingler (and family!). Sadly, I was too busy in my own booth to go pour through his, so I somehow managed to not end up with any of his awesome stuff... but I have a feeling I'll be seeing more of him soon!

My time here in NOLA is almost over, but I find out in a few weeks if I've been accepted to Festivus this year or not, so stay tuned for updates about that. If I am accepted, I'll be back in NOLA for a few weeks in December and most likely participating in several markets around town while I'm here.
