Summer Art Fair
“We could get a donkey for a hundred bucks,” says my husband while perusing Craigslist. “That’s about as much as we’d spend on a bike.” It’s true, the price of said donkey seems surprisingly affordable and we’ve certainly shelled out more on biking expenses, but even so, I think I’ll stick to my transportation on two wheels over four legs. Although I’m sure the latter would have made quite the statement at the downtown art fair this weekend.
So no donkey. But there was an art fair in our little downtown area this weekend and I did go peruse it with my bike, Mojito. All along the sidewalks of our little downtown area sellers set up tables with jewelry, pottery, home goods, and crafts. Local shops also brought out their inventory, giving the sale a bit of a flea market feel with the discounted racks of clothing and table of clearance goods. I snatched a skirt for $1, you can’t beat that.
I loved riding my bike downtown for this event because I didn’t have to worry about parking in an already sparse-parking area. Add to it the conglomeration of people and cars coming in just for the fair and you’d be hard pressed to find a spot that didn’t require you to backtrack halfway to your home just to walk back over. Mojito was extremely patient as I walked him through the tables and clothing racks with me, even offering to hold my purse and helmet in his basket while I shopped. Now that’s a gentleman. On second thought, I don’t think donkeys come with baskets and I’m not sure they’d be as patient during my shopping trips.
After exhausting the sales, I parked Mojito outside the local coffee shop and met my handsome husband inside. An iced coffee and some downtime later, I was ready to hop back on the bike and pedal home. How was your Saturday? Anything eventful happen?
Happy Weekend! S.
