Hi to all of our supporters. It has been a year and half since our last show. Our first show of the year was at The Springfield Farmers Market. Here is a little background history about it.
Springfield Farmers Market is held every Saturday from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM, June through September. The Springfield Farmers Market is held adjacent to the Heritage center on North Market Place in Springfield, Ohio. It features dozens of local vendors featuring fresh, local vegetables, meats, dairy products, baked goods, arts and crafts. Also, COhatch Springfield is open with 5 restaurants and two bars located inside the old Myer’s Market .
The day before, we did a dry run of setting up our booth. We went very simple. We decided on bringing belts, purses, wallets, cord keepers, growler carriers, wine bottle carriers, bracelets and a few journals. We got all our products into one large bin but still needed two vehicles for the setup. We’re still searching for a 15 passenger van to put everything in it. We started a Ko-fi Page! Ko-fi helps creators get support from fans of our work. Please support or follow our page! https://ko-fi.com/dragoncatleather . We set up a goal of $5000 to buy a van.
Setup for the market started at 7:30 am. We arrived around 8 am. Setup was a breeze for us. It was a beautiful day for the market. There was the right amount of breeze and sunshine. Everyone was excited to be out and enjoying the market. There were about 30 vendors at the market. It was a good mix of vendors featuring fresh, local vegetables, meats, dairy products, baked goods, arts and crafts.A couple of highlights, we met Jeb Pencil, a bison farmer and owner of Pencil Bison Ranch that wanted us to leather work with bison’s hides. Also, it was good to see Justin from Sleepy Panda Forge and Leather. The last time we saw him and his wife was at BrewDog DogTap Columbus.
We will be back at it again on Saturday June 12 from 9am to 12:30pm. Come out and visit us.
