Hello,

My cellular phone is currently out of order.   When would be a good time for me to come take your 4-wheeler for a spin?  I’ll need to make sure it handles well before I make the purchase.  Let me know.

Thanks,
RP

Hello,

Tomorrow might be best.  I’d like to take it around the block, and possibly see how it handles on the open road.  There’s typically quite a bit less traffic in the middle of the day.   How many miles are on it?  Have you had any trouble with it?

Thanks,
RP

I think u have the wrong idea of the 4 wheeler….it’s a battery powered 4 wheeler

Hello,

That’s not a problem.  I’m definitely in the market for a hybrid.  I think going green is important in today’s society.  Is it in good condition, aside from the typical dents and door dings?  Is tomorrow still okay to take it for a test drive?   Let me know.

Thanks,
RP

Super Market

by ranpen on November 17, 2011

Downtown farmer’s market partner

I am looking for someone who is established in the downtown DM farmer’s market who might be willing to share their space with me next season. I have no idea the cost of renting space for the market but I’m sure it’s not in my budget for a space of my own, not to mention things like a tent awning, etc so I thought I would see if there’s anyone who would like to share space and expense. Thanks!

Hello!!

I’m so excited to have found your posting.   Are you still looking for a farmer’s market partner?  I would enjoy having someone with whom to share a space.  Let me know.
Thanks,
RP

Hi Randy~ so far you are the only responder. have you done the Farmer’s Market in downtown DM before? I have not. I have no idea who to contact, cost, etc. What do you know about all that and what do you sell?

Thanks for responding!

Kim

Hi Kim,

I’m so sorry for the delayed response.  I’ve been distracted with a number of things, including my initial planning for next year’s FARMER’S MARKET!!  Hooray!  I find it absolutely disgraceful that I’m the only one that has responded to your email.  Hard to believe.  But, oh well.  More fun for us at the FARMER’S MARKET! Hooray!

When we share a space, what will you be selling?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Thanks,
RP

hey Randy…I asked YOU first what you sell lol but that’s ok. I’m a handy-crafter. Right now what I have is a slew of necklaces with pendants made from upcycled/repurposed dominoes, glass tile, scrabble tiles, etc. Pendants are then put on either black leather, ,black satin, or color-coordinated ribbon with cord. I put a wide variety of images on the pendants……Klimt, I Love Lucy, Alice in Wonderland, Wizard of Oz, It’s a Wonderful life, birds, butterflies, Steampunk,  sayings, hearts….you name it.

I also thought if I could get into the farmer’s market I would start now on sewing…..accessories, babies and childrens clothing.  I am also working on some more artistic endeavors and depending on what transpires there some of that may be included. I have my hands in so many different things I have never been able to limit myself to one art or craft so cannot say I specialize in one particular thing. I knit scarves, make pennant banners (paper and cloth)….I could go on but I think you get the picture.

So what do you think? Could it be a good match? Tell me what you sell.

Thanks!

Kim

Hi Kim!

You handy-crafter, you!  I bet your necklaces are quite stunning.  The idea of re-purposing dominoes and scrabble tiles is just fantastic.  I think these kinds of items would sell well at the FARMER’S MARKET!  Hooray!

Last year, I took a woodworking class at a community college.  It was on Tuesday and Thursday nights.  There were only 4 other people in the class. (I think one of them was dead).  After a couple of weeks, I realized that I had quite a knack for woodworking. For the last few months, I’ve been sculpting statuettes of some of my heroes: Grover Cleveland, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Walt Disney, Harriet Tubman, Alec Baldwin, and Jesus Christ to name a few!  (I even gave Harriet Tubman a mustache).  I’ve been wanting to show them off for a while now, and I can’t think of a better place to do so then the FARMER’S MARKET!! Hooray! Somewhere along the line, I also started working furiously with wicker.  I’ve made several picnic baskets, some rocking chairs, some adult toys, and a few coasters that I’m quite proud of.

I should also mention that I am a highly skilled cheesemaker.  I spend every Saturday afternoon making cheese nuggets in various flavors, like tomato basil, spicy cheddar (watch out!), and garlic parsley (makes me gassy), and pepperjack. What better place to showcase homemade cheese than the FARMER’S MARKET!  Hooray!

I think this sounds like a great match.  Do you have any pictures of your items?

 

Thanks,
RP

I wouldn’t call them stunning. Fun, whimsical, not average maybe. Not the best quality photos but here you go. So you’ve never done the farmer’s market before? Did Harriett Tubman have a mustache? Adult toys made out of wicker I don’t want to know about, and….thanks so much for sharing your issue with garlic parsley cheese. Let me know what you think of the necklaces.

Kim

Hello!

I quite enjoy your pendants.  As you say, they are fun and whimsical but not stunning.  Last year, I made every attempt to participate in the FARMER’S MARKET! Hooray!  However, they rejected my application.  I’m hoping they will reconsider this year.  I’d hate to go another year without the chance to showcase my crafts at the FARMER’S MARKET! Hooray! I’m quite certain Harriet did have a mustache.  I have attached a photo of the wooden statuette I sculpted.  Since you do not want to know about the adult toys, I will not tell you how tremendous they are, especially during those lonesome winter evenings.  Looking forward to sharing a space with you.

Thanks,
RP

Dear Kim,

I’m slightly offended that you have ridiculed my woodworking abilities.  I take great pride in my craft, and the statue of Harriet Tubman (with a mustache) is one that I hold dear to my heart.   I’m unsure if we can share a space together at the FARMER’S MARKET!! Hooray!
Thanks,
RP
