This Little Peggy Went to Market.....


The weather here on the Island has been stellar! Cool nights,  
warm days - it's perfection! In preparation for a market
 that The Painted Pear (yeah me!) is hosting along with
a local winery (yes we have vineyards on the Island
who knew?),  Mr. Biff and I have been going to several local
markets in search of vendors.  
We've met some AWESOME people in the process!
You know who you are!
 We've made our way around 4 local markets in the last week
or so - one right here in the city of Nanaimo, one just north of the
city in Lantzville and two south of us - in Cedar and Duncan.
I have some photos from those last two markets to share today.
This is the Cedar market - it's in a huge field - it's so "countrified" - it's a lovely
stroll around the field whilst being serenaded by the musician(s) du jour.
The photos below are of Duncan - this is a fairly small town but it sure knows
how to host a market. People come from all over Vancouver Island to attend
this Saturday market.
 Can you see the guy in the tye-dyed t-shirt in this photo below?
 Mr. Biff was “stalking” him trying to get a pic - his socks were
 tye-dyed to match  his t-shirt: stylin'!
Getting excited about the Vintage/Craft Fair - stay tuned for more information
coming up along with a great giveaway to celebrate the recycled/repurposed
vintage style we love so much!
Hugs & blessings to you my friends,

Hi Peggy,
Looks like a lot of fun. I just love to find treasures at a market too. Thanks for stopping by and following. I am now a follower too. Have a great week!
