Our day at the "French Market"

We had a lot of fun showing our merchandise at our local "French Market". It was a beautiful day in Las Vegas (other than a little hot), but there was a nice breeze as well to help you cool off. It was a very nice turn out and we sold enough to double pay for our booth rental, as well as we got a lot of positive feedback on our artistic offerings. So to us that was a success!

Also our very good and talented friend, Laura Zollar, joined us and had her prints for sale and brought a few pieces of her original artwork with her.

Her website is a must see!

We are planning on being there again on May 30th, from 9:00am - 1:00pm, so all you locals be sure to come out to see what new items we have and buy yourself some gorgeous produce as well. It's located at Village of Centennial Springs Park, 7565 Norman Rockwell Ln. Las Vegas 89143. (N. Durango and Farm Rd.)

There were all kinds of different vendors there from produce (of course), olive oils and balsamic vinegar, handcrafted artistic cheese, handmade children's clothing, art, and so much more.

I went around and took some pictures and wanted to share their creative merchandise with you.

Bistro Blends had some very tasty and wonderful olive oils, aged balsamic vinegar (to die for) along with an assortment of marinades. Everything was very good, because I sampled them all...LOL! So be sure to click on their name to go to their website to check out the products. You'll be glad you did.

Vintage Lucy's specializes in unique hip items vith a vintage flair for children and adults. They offer one of a kind retro items for home and fashions. For all you Las Vegans, this is a local company. So for that unique item for yourself or a gift click on her link to visit her shop! Very cute stuff!

This next artist is also local here in Las Vegas and a fellow "etsyan" as well. Kelly Murphy of Murphy Studios. She paints with acrylics. Each piece is a one of a kind piece of art. She has a variety of different styles that is sure to fit your taste. She will be at the French Market on May 30th as well.

Patti Backer whimsical art and silly fish her art is a whimsical combination of folk and lowbrow, sweet and macabre. She paints furniture, makes things from handbuilt ceramic pieces and creates silly strange school fish. Each piece has it's own personality and is very unique. Her work is just adorable and fun, so be sure to check out her shop(s), you're bound to find exactly what you're looking for. She's also a local in Las Vegas!
