One of my plans for 2010 is to start a Nowata County Farmer’s Market at the Fairgrounds. Gardening has always been my passion and therapy. I have also been involved with a series of Economic Development meetings for Nowata City/County and believe that Agritourism is an important aspect of Nowata’s economy. I have been working on networking and planning since October 2009 for the market. Another page will be added to this blog about the market and keeping everyone updated about the progress.
My very creative daughter, Holly, made this bag for my Christmas present using a pattern from the book, One Yard Wonders. She used vintage material for her creation. I love it, love it! Holly and her friend, Audrey, have developed a collaborative creative project, Mama Says Vintage. Please stop by to read their unique blogs.
The bag rolls up and has a velcro strap to secure. You could store it in your purse or glove compartment or in a milk crate in the back of your mini-van. I have a plastic milk crate that I keep the following items:
- cloth shopping bags (from various stores)
- newspaper for wrapping my junking finds
- a few recycled plastic bags for multiple purposes
- a box of baby wipes
- hand sanitizer
- paper towels
- 2 small size quilted moving pads to protect my junking furniture pieces
- 3 bottles of water
- disposable cups/snacks
- a box of various size plastic storage bags
My van hauls grandkids to various activities and always seems to stop at garages sales, estate sales, flea markets, etc. so the above items come in very handy. One never knows when and where one might need any or all of the items. Like maybe on a trip to Tablerock Lake through the ups and downs and curves with a 4 year old sitting in the back seat who got carsick…… which we did not have because we were in Grandad’s truck.
If you are reading this and live within 40-50 miles from Nowata and are interested in the farmer’s market, please make a comment and I will let you know about the planning meetings, etc.
I will be a fashionista at the Farmer’s Market with my new one-yard bag!
