A gift certificate to spend at the market
Next, we will be offering gift certificates. This is for your friend or relative you just can’t think of anything to buy. They come to the market every week so this is the perfect gift. Just check with Liza, our treasure, and she can tell you all about it.
We will now have MARKET BUCKS. We tested this a bit last year. This is how it works. You go to the treasurer, Liza, and say you want to buy some bucks. You tell her how much and give her your credit card. She swipes, you sign and she gives you the bucks. Then you can go to most of the vendors and spend the bucks like cash (you can get change if you need it). If you have leftovers, you can use them the next time you come to the market. Our vendors turn them in at the end of the month and they get reimbursed. This has worked well for those of us who forgot to go to the bank.
Next, there are some new vendors this year including Tim, who will be selling fish from www.freshseafoodnc.com. Those of you who also shop at the Weaverville Tailgate Market will recognize the website. Susan, who sold quilts and landscape plants, will dive into bread making. We had some at our market meeting and it was great! Her company is called Doughlicious. Patricia Ernest will be at the market. Her business, Whimziis, is making sweaters, vests, hats and purses. She designs her creations. Check back for more vendors or check our vendor tab on the website.
