With our longtime pals Jan and Dave, we enjoyed the waterfront park and prowled the waterfront this Sunday and took advantage of the farmers market by the ferry dock. The market was here in the late forties and fifties, but this particular incarnation is the brain baby of Kathleen Puls, a creative entrepreneur who sells all manner of oils and goodies at her booth (you can see Jan inspecting them in the gallery below). "It's all about craft here, and the individual," said Kathleen. It sure was - a lovely mix of artisans and farmers. They could use more though, so if you have something to sell you might consider checking it out.
One woman I really enjoyed talking to owns a shop in town called F.R.O.G. Soap. She uses recycled oils to make her soaps and foot creams and they smell yummy! Who'd a thunk it? I hope to interview her soon, along with some of the other shop owners in this interesting town on the rise. Many of the shops support good causes and I find this fascinating. I hope you all will, too.
