Bloomin' and Zoomin'

Mother's Day weekend Berwyn is hosting the second annual Bloom-n-Zoom--an outdoor market where people can come and buy stuff for Mother's Day. There will be plants, flowers, gifty stuff, etc. I'm thinking about getting a booth for it, which means I need to get to work on my logo, lease, and product lines. It will be a great opportunity to let the folks in town know what's coming--a "green" gift shop! I have some things that I make that I will sell for sure (candles and body scrub and jewelry), but I'd like to get some other "mom" things before then. I've got a line on some fantastic-looking organic chocolates. And some really cute reusable totes. I can make some handmade cards. . .Hmmm. . .what else? I'm trying not to spend too much money so early on, so I'm looking for lines with low or no minimums. I can't wait to get the Mrs. Meyer's cleaning products, but that would make for a lousy Mother's Day gift--"here Mom, go clean the kitchen!"

Before that, on April 19, I'm doing the Berwyn Historical Society's antique show and sale. I had an antique mall booth years ago, and I'm still trying to get rid of some of that stuff. And I can't stop buying it, so there will be new old stuff too. Estate sales and thrift stores lure me in every time. That reminds me--I need to order the organic hand sanitizer soon.

Maybe I'm a strange mom, but I would LOVE a cute cleaning tote filled with Mrs. Meyer's cleaning products. Maybe some of those cute (reusable) cleaning gloves in it? A very Bree Van de Kamp (Desperate Housewives) kind of gift!
