first grower's market

today was the first downtown grower's market of the summer and the turnout was quite nice.
since the element store is 100 yards away all i did was drive down there with my canopy, grab some furniture and setup. pretty easy. i'd say 35 or so cards were taken and i got into an interesting discussion about sustainable vs. green. a guy named doug who said he sold office furniture came by and started talking about emissions/VOC. i told him my business philosophy leans towards sustainable furniture...that sustainability is less consumptive than the recycling process.
plus i use a lot of found material which, i believe is already charged with all this energy and history. if i get my hands on it, just a small addition can send it off in a different direction. stay tuned. peace, scott
