We are so excited about October finally coming around and they are calling for a "Fall" feeling this weekend, so no rain and hopefully a lot less humidity !
We have 2 big shows this weekend. Starting tomorrow (Fri. Sept 30th) through Sunday, Oct. 2nd,we will have a set up at the beautiful Tropiflora Nursery down in Sarasota. Always one of our fav shows and Dennis and Linda Cathcart are much welcoming hosts to us and many of their fellow plant vendor friends. If you have the time to come down, promise it will be worth the trip...check out info and directions at www.tropiflora.com
And......Big Clap, this Saturday, Oct. 1st marks the reopening of the Saturday Morning Market in downtown St. Pete. Market hours are 9am-2pm and the market is located in the parking lot of Al Lang Stadium at 1st street and 1st avenue south. For info about the market, check out their website at: www.saturdaymorningmarket.com. Look for us on the back East Row and we will have a gorgeous display of great plants to put in for the Fall.
Last weekend, we set up at Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks, and baby, it was hot out there ! 110% humidity affected vendors and customers alike so we want to thank the hardy folks that came out to support the show. We could not have made it through the weekend without the kindness of fellow shop stores along the boulevard, who gave us continued updates on weather, and short respites of getting cool in their shops. We want to particularly thank the ladies at the Boutiki-Hu shop, who provided us with a big cooler of cold ice tea and bent over backwards to look out for our comfort and well being..thank you ladies !! If you ever get up that way, this one is for you ladies (send the guys out for a beer while you meander !)....you need to check out their shop...a gorgeous selection of beautiful gifts, clothing and tropical delights, that you could spend hours combing through.
Well, off to load trailers, gather plants and birdhouses, equipment and coolers and get ready for these events. Hope you get to come on out and enjoy a bit of Fall feelings and fresh air !
