October is National Book month and we will be having a Support Your Local Author Event right here in the market on Saturday, October 19, 2019 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. We hope you and yours will come out and support our local tri-county area published writers, ask lots of questions and even start a few writers groups. Yes, the vendor spaces are rapidly filling up and some of our vendors have moved to different spaces around the market. All just in time for the influx of tourists coming to the area to enjoy the weather, the natural resources and just because they can. Hopefully, we all will either get some great bargains or make some money over the next couple of months.
Hello everyone hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Yes, we could use a little rain to tamp down the dust and help out our lawns but it should be a very nice one. Mornings are getting cooler and lasting just a tiny bit longer. People are decorating their yards and houses with fall colors and Halloween will be here before you know it. The market people just love this time of year as more people are coming back to the area and everyone pretty much just loves the upcoming holiday. Especially, Sonny, the owner. He and his volunteers are busy putting up decorations, displays and getting the Haunted house ready for the kids and adults to enjoy.
The Chiefland Farmers Flea Market is changing for the upcoming season and bringing in more and more artists of all types as well as inspiring new small businesses. Next month the market is sponsoring a local published author event which features published writers from, not only the tri-county area, but those in the surrounding counties as well. So far we have about 9 published authors and an editor interested in sharing their books and stories about writing, publishing, marketing and editing stories with anyone who has an interest.
Boy, we are having a really busy weekend and, of course, it doesn’t help that my laptop went on the fritz yesterday morning so I couldn’t finish this post. But such is life. We are having a nice influx of new vendors wanting spaces here at the market. Some of them are even crafters! We welcome them all and look forward to having a full house for the fall and winter season. Come on down and check us out every weekend. You just never know what you’re going to find.
Fall is definitely coming. It is a great season where you have a mixture of cool mornings, hot afternoons and the possibility of turning off the air conditioner for longer periods of time. The leaves are changing and the migrating birds are slowly returning to the area. It also means that the RVers and winter people will be coming back to our area. And there are more and more of the booths around the market filling up with the seasonal monthly vendors selling everything from handcrafted items, overstock items, antiques and collectibles and lots of gently used stuff that you can use, re-purpose or recycle into something totally different. The possibilities are endless!
