At the Vancouver Folk Music Festival outside market

By , 16 July 2007 16:46

Last year, the day before I joined the Co-Operative Auto Network, I went the Vancouver Music Festival and spent some time at the outside market along the fence. I decided that I would bring my bokashi buckets next year and so I did.

This was the first time I brought inventory ready to sell at an event. I started getting ready on Wednesday with new flyers and material. I hired J, my neighbour’s son as my assistant and ‘guard dog’ as he called himself.

We started early and got there about 8:30 A.M. All day parking for $5? Can’t beat that. Got a spot between two existing booths and started to setup. Three trips later I was ready for the day:

That’s J, not me. Here I am at work:

All I can say is that the day was very long. It was great too. Lots of information given out and explanations made. I brought bokashi to sell separately and a few people bought that. As well, I have two new bokashi composting customers:

Lisa and Devin:
Folk Fest #3 - 15jul07

Kathy and Jeremy:
Folk Fest #4 - 15jul07
[Kathy has provided me with two referrals – Thanks!]

My neighbours included Miriam of Flaming Angels Design
Folk Fest #5 - 15jul07
had helpful advice about vending to share

and Leslie [taking a break]
Folk Fest #6 - 15jul07
who lent us her comfy chairs for us to sit on. Much appreciated!! I went out and bought one on Monday.

Finally, a panorama of the view from our area:
