Saturday Sidewalk Sale
For the first time in quite a while we have a weekend at home with no visitors or events planned. It turned out to be a sunny day (in the morning and early afternoon) and our town had a sidewalk sale. Every so often there are special markets in our tiny downtown area. A few blocks are closed to traffic (there is an easy detour route) and we can stroll right in the center of the streets for a while.
It was a hot day so the little pop up tents were greatly appreciated! I looked for some shoes at the store on the left but didn't find any today.
The "lady lamp" was out of the lamp shop and attracting attention to the sale table. (You may remember seeing this before in another post about downtown Concord).
There was music, food and entertainment. This Chef was demonstrating his talents and offering some free tastes - the strawberry shortcake was delicious!
We have several antique shops in town and I had fun looking through their displays. I only made one small purchase - a flower pot for our outside plant stand.
The most unusual thing I saw was this skirt made from fabric yo-yos. I wonder what you wear as a first layer since this was definitely a "see through" fashion!
If you don't know how to make fabric yo-yos, I did a post last summer HERE with some simple directions. I used sparkly gold netting for the yo-yo behind this sentiment sticker.
This spinner was at the booth of a local real estate company. I liked the shape of the central stars as well as the overall design so I snapped a photo for reference. It should be fairly simple to draw a similar star in the Silhouette Studio software.
In the afternoon, we had a good amount of rain with thunder and lightening. The power went out several times and I didn't do any test cutting of my backlog of projects . Maybe I'll get to do that on Sunday....
I hope you are having a great weekend!
