well, ligonier country market ended like the proverbial lion.  it was windy, rainy and cold!  i arrived at my usual time, around 6:30 a.m. and set up my tent and put the sides up to keep the rain out but there was no keeping out the wind!  it took a long time to get the sides up due to the strong winds and once i finally got almost settled in, the wind caught up the tent and raised it up along with the stakes twice!  then after all of my wonderful knitted and felted things got blown down the third time, i packed up and decided to visit and shop at the market, something i rarely get to do.  it was fun seeing most of the vendors (i say ‘most’ because there were quite a few missing due to the inclement weather).  i bought some wonderful concord grapes, veggies, pears, a wonderful handmade fountain pen made by Lynn Owens’ husband Dave (Ducky’s Pens), a woven rug for the shop, my favorite soap from Rebecca Hilko Shepler (not only great soap for washing with but great for felting as well), etc etc.

funny thing that happened today.  Thea mans the shop on saturday from 10 to 2 but was under the weather today.  i couldn’t get ahold of tom to tell him to go ahead and lock the shop door.  some time around 11 i got a call on my cell that said it was from the state of indiana.  usually i don’t answer unknown calls, figuring they are telemarketers.  glad i did – the lady on the other end said she was at my shop and no one was here.  i proceeded to tell her why and said if she wanted to purchase something to go ahead and do it because i wasn’t due home for over another hour.  she said she would happily write a detailed list of everything.  well by the time i dilly dallied home, i found that there had been THREE customer there today.  the two ladies from indiana were together, and another lady from ligonier was there also.  they all made purchases and i believe i am now the first self serve yarn shop in the state, maybe even the world!?
