Slightly Soggy September

Well Marketeers we did it again...despite the ominous radar and the off and on drizzle, September's Market went very well. Although attendance was down, we still had around 600 folks, and there were some competing events most importantly The Cowboy Symposium.

It was in the words of one of our vendors still a great day. People were carrying sacks of Artistic works as well as fruits and veggies. The cool weather did add a nice calm to the whole event, it was less frenzied and there seemed to be a lot more interaction with Marketeers and Customers. That to me shows that the DAM is as much a community social event as it is a Market. That is a wonderful unexpected bonus to the effort.

Coming up in October we will be blocking part of Buddy Holly to traffic and setting up some stands in the street, this is the first step into making some of the Markets into full blown street festivals.

We hope y'all enjoyed our strolling musicians Wade Parks and Bobby Saied, we have wanted music as apart of this since the start. Thanks Guys.

Lets face it folks Art , Food and Music all make the World a better place for us all. Keep up the good work and we will too.

Wow! Sounds like a GREAT time! I wish I could have been there but was up in Ruidoso for the weekend! I'd love to be a participating vendor there in the future, Pauline Mills keeps telling me to contact you. Anyway, give me a buzz... vivatreginacrafts@yahoo.com.

Have a good day! -- Regina

Wade and Bobby made the perfect soundtrack to the market. I've never heard such good acoustic, unamplified, and truly skillful singing before.

Keep up the great work!
