It is finally here, dear reader. The day we have been looking forward to for months. It is market day eve, and we could not be more excited. We are stocked, organized, and ready for the big day. Earlier in the week, we finished cleaning The Bibbed Wonder's garage. This gave us the space to set up our tent and do a dry run of our display. We began pulling soaps and organizing our inventory last night. We have signs made, new tables delivered, and a few surprises for our market family. We are almost giddy with excitement.
We set up our tent on Wednesday and meticulously combed over it to ensure it was in proper working order. Happily, everything is fine. I then took over the design of the display. I must say, I feel this is the best setup we have ever had. However, I believe I say that every year. We had professional signage created, and it is sturdy, easy to read, and visually appealing. I purchased a few new items for display purposes, and I can't wait to see it all come together at the market. The Bean and I have a few additional projects to complete today, which will add the finishing touch to our display. By the end of the workday, we will be packed, organized, and ready to go.
We hope to be in bed early tonight, like eight o'clock early. Eric and I will be up at 3:30 tomorrow morning, and it will be a long day. However, it will be worth all the hard work and effort to see our market family and vendor friends. I can't wait to see the faces of our well-loved market family and catch up on what has happened in the past several months. The weather forecast is calling for 70 degrees and partly sunny. That will make for a glorious farmer's market day. I hope to see you there.
Have a wonderful weekend, dear reader. If you don't have plans for tomorrow, a day trip to the lovely town of Ligonier and The Ligonier Country Market would be a wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning. The market runs from 8 a.m. until noon. I would advise you to come early before it gets crowded and come with an appetite. The Bibbed Wonder is already plotting his menu. We are located at site # 15 this year. Site #15 is located on the main aisle, just a few spaces down from the red information tent. As always, dear reader, stay safe, be smart, hopefully, join us at the Ligonier Country Market, and of course, wash your hands.
