I’m Listening!


If you were at the Armory yesterday for our first Marketplace of the season, THANK YOU!  Whether you were there as a vendor, buyer, visitor, volunteer or moral support—you had a part in our success!

The rain held itself to a light shower every once in a while, a blessing for which I’m very grateful.  We saw a mix of return vendors and new ones, and all seemed to agree they had a very good day.  The cello and guitar music of siblings Scott and Ella added a pleasant ambiance, and I witnessed lots of foot traffic back and forth across Front Street.

In the next few days I’ll post some photos of the event, but for now I’d like to hear from YOU.  Please feel free to comment with your honest opinion, and I want to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly!  Did you have a favorite booth?  Something you wish you had seen there?  How do you feel about the times, the location, the organization?  If you were selling, is there something I can do better?  If you were shopping, how can I make it a better experience for you?  And if you are a merchant or city official—did you see any benefit from the event?  Did your shop see more traffic?  Or did you see any negative effects I should address?

Just leave your comments, and I promise to consider each one as I move forward with the next event(s).
