It’s hot and the holidays are coming soon. The most notable one is Independence Day. The day we declared in one voice that we are Independent of England! We fought and won our freedom to create a more perfect union. Of course, establishing justice for ourselves and our prosperity was why we ordained and established the Constitution in the first place. Just celebrating that is more than enough to enjoy this holiday weekend coming up with your friends and family…while respecting the social distancing thing too.
Well, it is finally the end of May. We are all getting out and about and trying our best to return to normal. Or, I should say, establishing a new normal. Businesses and services are fully open or at least partially operating. Now, all we need to do is get more people working, earning, and spending that money on essentials and fun things too. More vendors are coming over to the Market to start a new business even. That is really very exciting. You just never know what you are going to find here so come on down and visit with our old vendors, say, hi! to the new ones and find something you really need or at least cannot live without.
We hope everyone will be keeping themselves and their families safe this normally getting out in nature weekend. Even though we are not having the usual festivals, parades, and drunken weekend camping at the springs kinds of things (well maybe some of you are), we all should take the time to remember and honor those who have died in the service of our country. Yes, please have fun with the kids while keeping at least 6 feet away from strangers, eat lots of watermelons, go swimming if you can find a place with very little people, or even enjoy a bit of camping in the middle of the National forests. Those are all fun activities we can still do.
If you haven’t been on Facebook in a while you might not know that the Market will be finally opening back up beginning, Saturday, May 9, 2020, at 8:00 am. We hope to see everyone come on down and say, Hi! to our vendors, purchase some goods, and getting some exercise. All while maintaining 6 feet of distance between you and the next party as much as possible and wearing your colorful and inventive masks. Betty and Richard Hunter will have a whole selection on the Black Row as will Flo’s Alterations on the Green Row. Keep checking the Facebook page for updates from returning vendors over the next 9 days.
Welcome to the second weekend in February 2020 here at the Market. We hope you and yours had a wonderful Valentine’s Day celebration whatever y’all created for each other. Mostly, it’s nice just to spend some devoted time with each other whether that’s a special someone, a great friend or being with your family. I just like all the chocolate myself and try to send out loving vibes to all my friends and family as often as I can throughout the year.
