Looking towards Summer. . .

It used to be that our Mermaid's Markets would close down in mid-April 
and my life would become much calmer  
without the every-other-week 
packing, loading, unloading, 
setting up, breaking down 
and re-loading and unpacking. . ."whew!"

Then, I would attend to my shop quietly thru May and June
and then after June, just close it all down
And, like a school teacher - take the summer months off (without pay).  ha. 
However last year, I began to attend a couple of stateside events.

This summer there is almost one event per month, I think.
Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market Scottsdale
Granite Creek Vineyard Art & Wine Festival 
Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market San Diego 
 and, the Baja Blues Festival in Rosarito

So, no more quiet summers for me. 
It's back to work for this hired hand.
