The first Saturday morning of the month usually finds me at the Paris Street Market in Littleton, Colorado. It is a grand parade of vintage fabrics, architectural artifacts, crafts and of course, people. I like to look around, recharge my creative batteries and shop for props.
Lately, I’ve noticed a change. Instead of mostly women doing serious shopping, it has become an “event”. There has been a steady increase in the number of children, dogs and men.
Now, I love kids, dogs and men, but I go there to work. As the art director of Quilters Newsletter, I come looking for inspiration and that’s hard to do when you are dodging a double-wide baby stroller. It would be nice to have a little more space to do my thing, but then it might not be as “interesting”. So, I’ll continue to shop and be grateful when my husband says “go and have a nice time, I’m watching the golf channel.”
