Leaving the Real Swanky house.

I'm a hermit, a total hermit, but a nice hermit. I bake, I sew, I swear, it's great. Because I missed out on last month's Makers Market, I knew I had to break out the Docs and head out to this months event. I was super looking forward to seeing  friends on the WEST team and being on the Buyer's end for once!

During the first Friday of every month, Frame Gallery puts on their Makers Market event, where folks from all over may get together to browse, buy, sell, socialize and get their snack on. Many WESTies participate in the event, and I definitely would like to next month.

I also picked up some AWESOME raspberry grapefruit jam from Flora and Farmer, and BOY is it ever awesome. What a wicked flavour combo. There was also another open for sampling.. coconut-pineapple-jalapeño! There were a heap of other neat jams out but I was fixed on the raspberry grapefruit and bought three jars, whoops. It was tasty as fuck but I took the ulcers into consideration this round. Did I just down half a (MINI) jar this evening? Yep. I sure did. Free samples are offered on locally made bread, as well as a vegan & gluten free cracker. This girl knows her stuff, alright, I'm pumped on this stuff! I had it on French bread with vegan butter like a proper Mennonite-ish gal.

It's nearly ten, I'm full of French bread and jam, and I'm off to bed as I will be up bright and early tomorrow to work on a top secret colab project. x

  1. Looks like an amazing market. Although I am sure I can rival you in the hermit category!! I will have to try and get myself out there next month, you posted such great photos!

    1. It was fun! and a really relaxed atmosphere. I mean, someone WAS playing the harp, haha.

      I'd love to sell at the next sale, but if not, we could crack each other out of the house and get to it. Hermit support system!
