However I am also the mother of 5, who this year opened a little recycled art/vintage finds shop in my hometown on yes.....you guessed it Main Street. I say hi to all the shopowners and people walking by, cause thats just my nature. I give things to local businesses because I want to have a connection with them as business owners and to support one another.
My town is very supportive of small businesses, they are supportive of the Arts and are extremely focused on a GREENABLE lifestyle. We even have a GREENABLE MUSEUM in our local mall that showcases some of the best ideas, concepts and projects Ive seen.
We hold amazing events, parades, craft shows, free concerts and something that has become a favorite of mine The Farmer's Market. The location has changed to a little historic property in town and has been combined with the Summer Free Concerts and I have to say that it has been an amazing summer.
I have gained a ton of new friends in town and discovered so many artistic talented individuals who have also become part of my Lucky 7 Design family.
Tonight while at the market, the band playing was a cover band of Fleetwood Mac and I was surrounded my people who were out to enjoy the evening. I had a few of my vendors there as well and it was just a wonderful night.
I wanted to share with you a collection of photos that I have taken of the market the past few weeks so you can see that you really can live the simple country life even in the middle of all the hustle and bustle. Planes...Trains and Automobiles are a daily visual around here, put tonight just sitting on my old wooden rattan chair surrounded by everyone under the big trees appreciating the end of summer was a blast.
I hope you all have a town like mine, and if you don't be the one to do something about it. I will say that I will be the big mouth in town, I want parades, events, I want people to get out and enjoy everything the town has to offer. I want our Main Street to be a destination for friends to gather, families to walk around, couples to dine out and to share in a connection of small business and small town life in the big city.
