The Market Place, as I stated in the last post, features a wide range of garden related, or barely garden related, merchandise. There are also informational booths, and all of the local public gardens were represented. It was fun to tick off all the ones we have visited, which was almost all of them, of course.
We did buy a couple of things, and I'll point out a few as I show you some of the fun stuff for sale.
Bob Bowling makes the most wonderful little garden sheds out of recycled materials.
I guess this is where that peacock in the garden display came from. Really fum metal creatures here.
These are fun but not so friendly!
I bought one of those dragonflies made out of spoon handles, balancing on the bowl of the spoon.
There were plants for sale, of course.
These enameled metal birds were wonderful!
And the bronze sculptures were charming.
You could buy clothes for your next garden party.
How about a waterfall for your garden? Mark will build it for you.
I have purchased rusty birds from this vendor before. I bought more.
Here are mine.
A newer addition to the show is the vintage market, full of fun old stuff.
Look inside this old travel trailer.
I loved this Mexican pottery. I bought the sun face on the top left.
It's inside right now, but it will go on the outside wall of the house later in the season.
We look forward to visiting Christianson's Nursery in the Skagit Valley when we go to see the tulip fields. ↓
And a collection of conifers contributes color without blooms.
I bought this little wall pocket just because I liked it. i have no idea where it will end up.But I can tell you that this is THE END!
