It started out with a very busy stand by line.. even busier than we expected for the Second Sunday of the month.
Assistant Manager Martiros was happy to take a seat after another successful Stand By line was let it!
We spotted this awesome Star Wars lunch box by the Melrose Entrance!
We had a nice chat with Tim of Succulent Et Cetera!
Everyone was buzzing about this awesome space…
…they had so much funky stuff!
Lunchtime called for some delicious Argentinian food…
…and some jazz!
At the end of the day I was fascinated with Rachel Day’s Musical Frog Guiro from Thailand.
Her booth is at the top of the stairs by the food court!
Overall it was a beautiful and fun-filled day.
Thank you to everyone who made it so successful!
How do you like it?
Feedback is always welcome!
Yesterday’s Melrose Trading Post was filled with so many interesting people and things!!
I (Vendor Manager Natalie) found this framed Jimi Hendrix poster from 1988.
Vendor Jeff Cungious sold it to me (he always has great finds!).
Operations Manager Denise was all over the place!
Here she is sitting with Lester Anderson (B92) of AndersonBenches.com on one of his handmade creations.
Lester also had these insane vintage high heels in his booth.
These shoes were NOT meant for walking!
Later on I found Denise reminiscing about her favorite Christmas memories…
She really loves the holiday.
Eventually I caught up with Pierson Blaetz, one of the co-founders of the Melrose Trading Post.
He was having a healthy lunch in the food court…
I decided that if I ever became a millionaire, I would have a herd of these adult-sized rocking horses!
Denise is doing a beautiful arabesque on this rocking horse from Detroit Trash‘s booth (B144).
I wonder if anyone bought this… if not I’m definitely going to be on it next Sunday!
Lenise Soren of Sorenity Rocks’ hosted an unforgettable Sunday Funday Crystal Experience event! Did you meditate with Crystals, get a Crystal cleansing or drink Crystal-infused water?
If you missed it, she’ll host another Crystal Experience Sunday, August 5th!
Another successful Sunday Funday!
