One Year Ago

One year ago I sat down at the computer, and with the wonderful help from Randy Fisher, and Larry Simmons , we raised the money online to start this market. I am now working on the same format to raise money for Haiti. As of tonight we had raised Nearly $70,000.00. WE are buying ShelterBoxes So far we have bought 87 these boxes.

Our group is called The TM FISH Camp

Please come by and help us out at the next Market. Or make a $10.00 donation here.

Sorry Folks...

This is a blanket apology to all our followers concerning the January DAM. My Tech-ineptness did not get an updated post to load. We pulled the DAM on Thursday with the dire cold weather reports. The ad fr the GO magazine and Bill's announcement in that mag on Friday had already been printed. I sent out all the emails I could and posted as many bulletins on media sites but I did miss some folks. I was updating this post and trying to upload a new image and it did not work.(Anybody giving internet lessons call me.)

To reiterate, The Downtown Art Market will be an 11 month season from now on, with January being a catch your breath month. We had a wonderful December and I think everyone could use a break.

We are working on the new space fees and the like an will be gettin g with everyone at the February DAM. As we always have , we'll be fair. We want this to continue to grow and for all our vendors to be happy.

Again my apologies to all...

Happy New Year!

2010...sounded like the future when I was growing up, yet here it is. I hope we're ready. 2009 was a stellar year for us, the Marketeers, Tornado Gallery and of course The Downtown Art Market. We never imagined how great an event the Market would become. Our pride is shared, hopefully, by those intrepid individuals who set up their booths and sell their Art, by the Growers who bring the proofs of their labors every month. And by you the supporters of the DAM, y'all who buy things, visit with us here, pat everyone on the back and generally lift everyone's spirits month after month. Thanks to All of You.

This month looks like its going to be cold, it might turn out to be the slimmest Market yet, but that won't stop us. We'll try and make it happen. In February its the day before Valentines Day and we will have fresh cut local flowers and other items for your loved ones. In July we take to the streets every month for some really big things.

Yes Folks 2010 is here and the Downtown Art Market is hitting the ground running, thanks to everyone of you!
