Green Thumb ReCap and Plant Sale and Market this weekend


Wow, what a great show we had at Green Thumb Festival this past weekend ! We believe record crowds came out for both days and we almost sold out....here's a little evidence...

Pic at right is Friday night after we completed our set up...we had 6 spaces, so we filled up a 36 by 24 feet space....





Pic at left is at the end of the sale on Sunday and as you can see, we think we had about 15 plants left !

The show was all-around a good one for many of our vendor friends and everyone is so thankful that so many customers came out to support us.

We are also very thankful to our crew of helpers that made it a great event, our great friends Larry & Susan Sousa, Donna Armstrong & Donna Traynor. We will be especially missing Larry and Susan who have helped us so much over this past Spring season after we lost our beloved Rickey, and they are now off to a well-earned rest in the Carolina Mountains :)

So...on to finishing out our season...... This coming weekend, we will be back at Saturday Morning Market, downtown St. Pete, plus we are doing our annual spring plant sale at our house Friday and Saturday, so Mitch and I will be spliting duties. This weekend is also Mother's Day weekend, so we know many will be looking for that special gift for the special women in thier lives...we will be restocked up on our wonderful Cedar Birdhouses, will have more Hollyhocks, Passion and Pipe Vine, and more of the very popular perennial morning glory.

Again, here are the details of the house sale:

Place: 1331 39th avenue north, St. Pete (corner of 14th street and 39th avenue north, just off the main drag of 38th avenue north.

Hours: Friday, 10am-6pm Saturday 9am-6pm

We will have a good assortment of plants, plus some great sale items, as we start clearing out our stock before our summer break.

Hope to see you at the sale, or at market ! If you have any special wishes, or want to reserve a particular plant before the weekend, email us at: marketannie@aol.com

See you all soon !
