It was a cold, grey day. Wind was steady and frigid. We arrived at our spot on Waverly Place around 8:15 AM. Getting out of the car and immediately feeling the cold gave me a bad feeling about the day. It took no more than 5 minutes for those feelings to completely fade away and be replaced by joy and excitement.
There was not one person who did not have a smile on their face. Regardless of the temperature, every vendor was setting up with an infectious happiness. It took us about 20 minutes to get everything set up. Our location could not have been better. We were smack in the middle of Waverly Place, which is the primary road that intersects Main Street in downtown Madison.
Fuzzy Wuzzy Design was in the heart of the action. There were many vendors and many happy patrons eagerly wanting to check out the wares despite the cold. There were a wide variety of vendors. Not so much arts and crafts, but more retail merchants, assisted living services, schools, local community organizations and businesses. Another aspect of this show we took note of was the amount of giveaways and games that were conducted by other vendors. And the cold weather was to our benefit because we sold a good deal of sweaters and hoodies.
Overall this was a great show, we would defiantly do it again next year.
