a booth in the park
the view above is from the parking at mandarin plaza in chinatown. i’ve been working at an office in that plaza since 2007, but never have i set foot in the cornfield until this summer for the renegade craft fair. the reason why i took so long is lost on me—it’s a beautiful park.
genevieve & i had previously done some serious pre-planning on paper during my visit to NY, but not until she returned to LA & we assessed our furniture/decor & made some bargains at the melrose trading post did we really have any idea of how our wares might be arranged. with much appreciated help from james & scott & kevin biggers (they are very handy & have beyond-petite reach), we toted our things to the cornfield:
..& created some order out of it. here we are on standby, just as we were for our high school science fairs (minus the uniforms).
our booth location was nice—we were along the south edge of the fair, so the back of the booth opened up to the park space & we were able to get a much-needed breeze. friends came by throughout the weekend to bring food & do yoga & fly kites & amuse us & help out at our booth. i’m grateful for all the lovely support.
this was quite a sky-blue heavy post.
& more soon…
