Lunenburg Farmers' Market
Today I set up my hats at the Lunenburg Farmers' Market. I'll be there every Thursday from 8-12 throughout the summer. It is the most wonderful community event. There's no way to not sound corny, but it's a feast for the senses. There are so many farmers, bakers of incredible breads and pastries, The laughing whale coffee roasters, bags made from recycled sails, paintings, hand made shoes, bouquets and ,ofcourse, hats. It was one of those perfect days when the hats were flying off the rack. There are magical moments where one customer will help another customer find the perfect hat and everyone is just plain happy to be trying on hats. These are the hat times when I most love what I do. I love to wholesale and know that my hats are being sold all over, but to find the perfect fit for a customer who is in front of me is something that I was really missing and it's great to have this venue to do this. I'll be looking forward to my Thursdays, when I get to leave my little one woman sweat shop and venture out into the sun or rain.
