Well, that's all folks. The final market of 2011 has come and gone. How bittersweet. And we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day.

Check out some photos from the final market on Saturday. I'll be in touch with you all very soon with updates on next season's Ballston A&C Market. Mwah!

Stacy Rausch is an artist. By trade, she's a graphic designer for a local newspaper. She is also a freelance designer creating logos and brochures. But, what really caught my eye is Stacy's beautiful photography.

As Love to Create, you'll find Stacy shooting weddings, parties and anything else that may catch her eye in and about the District and beyond.
