All of my frantic preparation from the week before really did help out in getting ready for this market. This is obviously not to say that there was not much more frantic preparation for this market too - up until the minute I arrived to set up. But it was definitely worth it all!
Here is my amazing table and set up. The onesies are all displayed on the custom rack built for me by my amazing husband Kyle! I texted him a picture I drew (no dimensions included, obviously) and asked "can you build this?" With no questions and no complaints he said of course and got right to work making it happen as soon as he got home from work. He did eventually make me give him some dimensions and specifications, but I can't complain too much as there is no way I could have done it with out him!

Although long and exhausting, the market went great! Okay, so I may have needed a little help from the nice market manager in setting up my tent (despite having practiced one whole time in my back yard the day before) and the wind really did try to take down the onesie rack (but thanks to the incredible assistant again and the rope she brought with her, a definite crisis was averted). My market neighbors were all very friendly and welcoming. They also make and sell great things worth checking out while you are there visiting me. The girl selling necklaces can get seriously chatty though, so be ready!
Most importantly, I really started to believe that I can actually make this adventure work as a new life plan. I can't wait to go back to the market this week and keep chatting, shmoozing and making sales!
