Opening Day Photo Shoot!

Thanks to Sara and her trusty camera we have some awesome shots of Opening Day! Oh, by the way, I can't take credit for the gorillas. They stopped by with the bananas and carnations all on their own. Enjoy!

Amy from Unique Creations hard at "work."

Thanks for the bananas, Gorillas!

Nancy's pottery never fails to amaze.

Stroll around and get to know Welburn Square.

Let's dance to Bad Hair Day!

Opening Day Success!

Well, guys, give yourselves a round of applause. Thanks to you, the crafty vendors that you are, Opening Day in Welburn Square was a huge success. Folks turned out in record numbers to the Market not only because of the talent (that’s a given), but because you guys helped spread the word with your websites, facebook pages and street teams.

This season is off to an awesome start. If you have any creative ideas to make the market even better, let me know! Seriously. Drop me line. Let’s all work together to bring our Ballston Arts & Crafts Market to the next level.

Oh, and I have to give props to the weather, too. I think I may have even seen a bluebird!

Stay tuned to the blog for new pics of Opening Day!

Rain or Shine!

Look at it outside! It's beautiful!

So, I know what the weatherman has forecasted, but I say phooey! The Market is on rain or shine--and I really believe it's going to shine.

But, in the off chance that there is severe weather tomorrow (major rains, lightning, etc) you can call my personal cell phone number, (202) 536-9714, for an update on whether the market will be open. Anything lighter than that, and we'll be at the square setting up.

Once again, setup is from 8 am-9:45 am, and I'm looking forward to a wonderful Opening Day tomorrow!

Bird is the Word - OPENING DAY!

Oh, boy! Oh, boy! I can't believe Opening Day is this Saturday! Where did the time go? Well, I am happy to say, we are psyched and ready to make this Market the best around.

We have print & online ads coming out in the City Paper this week and have been featured in the Washington Post's DC Scout calendar! How sweet is that?

If you guys have any last-minute concerns or questions,I'm just an email away. Or, if you want to tell me how excited you are, too, I feed off positive energy!

Remember the (Ballston Blue) Bird is the word, so get the word out!
