They’re going to hell now…

You may wonder at the title of this blog post but while at the Dane County Farmer’s Market today I discovered a pendant was stolen. I commented out loud that I just realized that someone had stolen a piece of jewelry. 2 ladies at my booth asked what was stolen and when I told them it was a sterling cross that I had made — they said at the same time “Well, they’re going to hell for sure.” I was quite amused ’cause the thought crossed my mind that if you’re going to steal something a cross wouldn’t be at the top of most folk’s mind, I wouldn’t think. But then again, I’m not sure if everyone realizes the significance of what the cross means to most folks.

I have to say I’ve been quite fortunate in that this is only the second item that I’ve had stolen in about 6 or 7 years of doing shows but it did kind of top of the day since I and all the other vendors in my area got 30.00 parking tickets today. I’ve parked in that lot for 3 years myself and some of the vendors have parked there for years and years. If they didn’t like us parking there they could have left notices that there was a change in someone’s policy and we shouldn’t be parking there. I’m guessing Walker’s minions thought it was a good way to raise some extra money but all they’ve done is p*ss us off even more…

On the flip side, the weather was wonderful today — sunny and a bit of a breeze so we didn’t mind the 80 some degrees today when last week it was in the 40’s with rain. Folks were in great moods today and having a wonderful time. The air just vibrated with the energy at the market today.
