Market Friday and the Garden Market

Today is #MarketFriday initiated by @dswigle (Denise, that's me!!) Join me as we share our markets across the globe. I always look forward to seeing what you send me! It is amazing to see the different markets and cultures of our friends here on steemit. I have been pleasured by all of you, as you send in the most wonderful posts. Going places, doing things, buying merchandise. I have been surprised by many, not being familiar with the culture and I must say that it has been such an educational experience for me in so many ways and I hope for you also. This week, I am back at the flower market, but, this time, we will be shopping on the inside of their shop.

Are you ready to shop a bit?

This is one of my most favorite places to shop or poke around in, especially if I have a moment or three to give in this guilty pleasure. I could call it a holiday shop because you can get Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Valentines Day decorations, but, it is so much more than that. And then some. Follow me! We'll meander a bit!

MF10.JPG

They had a variety of different kinds of stones and ornaments for your garden or even for a pot of flowers. They had delightful little excerpts on them. Someone gifted me with one that said worm farm as my last name was Wigle... They thought it was rather cute. It kind of was.


Please leave the link to your post on here so it can easily be found by others. It helps you and me to have them in one place. Where else can you take such a quick trip around the globe? Thank you so much for joining us!! ❤

Artificial flowers and wreaths are offered in a wide selection or they can make anything you want. I have used them before to make a wreath and they are remarkable artists in their work. They also showed me how to do a few things so I can make my own. As I said last #MarketFriday, it is family owned and operated and they go the extra mile for their customers.



The garden gnomes were out in numbers, but, a meditating gnome... Hmmmm! That was unique. I have just the place for it! Although I promised myself, I couldn't buy anything for the garden, unless I took a piece out. And chances are, he will be here for a little while and I can think about it. Come on! Tell the truth! Isn't he a little cute?


STOP!! BRAIN TEASER AHEAD!!

Question: What comes once in a minute, twice in a moment, but never in a thousand years?

Answer: The letter M.

This little area here is equipped with a big screen(relatively) chairs and a couch, plus, pictures of fish and other kinds of manly things. This is where the men come to hang out and bond if their little woman stays too long. They have a popcorn machine that runs all the time, samples of wine, home-baked cookies and usually juice to drink. They do it as a courtesy. That's right. It's free! You gotta keep those men happy too!

I love my wind chimes. They sound like church bells, reminding me of my childhood, where I could hear the church bells alerting the parishioners that Church would begin in fifteen minutes. Long story - short... my wind chimes broke over the winter. I have never taken them in for the season and they finally rebelled and upped and died on me. So I need to look a little closer and play some melodies on them to see which one I want.



Novelty pillows were all over and some had embroidered animals or flowers on them, others had something silly written on them. But, it was a huge selling item. To go with the theme, there were paintings to tie everything all together. I know that there is nothing exceptionally special here, although some of the things could be fun, but, there are times where just wandering around looking at things and talking to people gives me a refreshed outlook on life.




MF12.JPG


Ribbons and ribbons and ribbons again. There was a boatload of ribbon offered up. Every color, width, and decoration on it.



MF18.JPG


Definitely a place to look at the offerings of a clock, from fancy to downright practical to upscale clocks and timepieces that would make Gucci proud. And the lamps! Did I forget to mention the lamps of all styles and shapes?


MF23.JPG

There were lotions and potions and all sorts of beauty to be had there. Perhaps, I will be beautiful another day. No time to fool around today!

A flower. There must be flowers. Always and forever, a flower to color my day.

And just like that, my shopping is done. Until next time! I hope you had fun and maybe next time, we will get a few more plants to fill in the spaces. As always, I want to thank you for taking the time to visit #MarketFriday!! Have a most fabulous day!





I have been discovering new places, some right in my own area! This week, I discovered a new farmers market that will be a walkable distance! I find that super exciting! I love to share and be shared with! I am intrigued by different cultures. It is exciting and yes! I would love to see yours! Don't forget to take photos wherever you happen to be shopping - whether it be the grocery store, the local marketplace or even an art gallery, a kite festival or a cherry blossom festival! Wherever money is exchanged for a service or for merchandise. Be different if you wish! It does not have to be a traditional market! We will love it! I promise you! Don't forget to use the hashtag #MarketFriday and @dswigle.

I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

Hungry???

Well I would like to know what the straight spiked leaf plant is where the big screen is. They sell them at the bait shop. Like a load of them. I never took the time to ask, but always was curious about them. That is the only plant they sell. They actually seem to breed them as they have them along every window in water.

I always love to see their decorating ideas they have there. They really do it up for Christmas I know! I like the "Home is where the boat is docked" one! ;) Great post as always Sunshine!

I'm not exactly sure which plant you are talking about unless you were talking about the mother in law's tongue? Is it just a flat leaf with spikes on the top? Being as they are breeding them, it sounds like the mother-in-law tongue.. is also called The Snake plant in the Vipers bowstring hemp. It is in the Asparagaceae family and originally come from West Africa. There are very Hardy and popular house plants here in the United States.

I love to see the decorating ideas that they have in places like this they really do Christmas the right way, although this year oh, it was tone down quite a bit.

Home is where the boat is docked? Sounds like a new Hallmark motto! Thank you for the always wonderful comment and we're stopping by market Friday! It's always a pleasure.

As always, I have a most wonderful day!

!tip

Yep that is the one. I swear they have them in water and all along the windows. They appear to be selling them. I never paid them much attention. Since Iggy passed I dont find myself up there much, but next time I will get some pictures!

They are rooting them, but, I believe all they have to do is stick it in the dirt and it will grow roots. They are a pretty popular plant and are so easy to grow. I like easy.

"I like easy."

Hey I have heard that somewhere before!

Well thanks for clearing that up for me. I have often wondered about it. I go up there once in a while coz they hold UPS for the driver to pick up if the package is too big for the box. The robbers charge almost 3 bucks for the "service", so I dont use it too often!

All of the Ace Hardware stores and other drop off points do the same. So do the UPS stores, but, they are discreet about it. ;)

Wow. The poem. The feels 💕

Who is the poet? I wish to read more of his or her works!! ((:

I left the name at the bottom of the poem. Sorry, you missed it. It is written by Warsan Shire and it happens to be one of my favorites of hers. Born in Kenya to Somalian parents, the family emigrated to Britain, but she now lives in Los Angeles in the United States. She has some brilliantly worded poetry. You can read her here.

I think you will love her! I hope you have a most amazing day!

I know this is a shop you ove and WOW they have so uch cool stuff in there, that Meditating gnomeI love, I would have bought it for sure, even though we don’t really have a garden at the moment where we live, but i would find somewhere to put it until we move and hopefully have a smal garden :)

Here is my post for this week

https://steemit.com/marketfriday/@tattoodjay/market-friday-hudson-yard-mall

Thanks for this great post and being an active member, founder and community guide of @steemusa !tip

I love any shop that has an eclectic mix of things, it just keeps my eyes busy and my brain on overdrive! Everyone loves the meditating gnome and I will be going back to get him. I hear my name has been put on him to save it for me.

I have a statue (or three) in the house, so in your house is a perfect setup for a space. I know you will be getting a garden when you move. I am undecided as of yet if I will move or stay here. I have come to lke living minutes away and yet have all the benefits.

Thank you for stopping by, dropping your link and for leaving an always great comment! I hope you have a most peaceful weekend!

!tip

I expect a shot of the meditating gnome when you get it :)
thanks so much for the tip :)

You bet!!! He was pretty cool and I will find a perfect place for him, even if it is in the house for a couple until I figure it out! ;)

My pleasure with the tip!I hope you have a great weekend!

I know you will find the perfect spot for him, the weather is looking like a good weekend to be indoors, but thats probably a good thing so I will take it easy, or at least as easy as I ever can LOL

Does that word actually exist in your vocabulary? I don't think so! :) But, my plans have been dashed with the weather, so I am a little bummed (picture wise) but, will find an alternate something. After coffee, of course. :)

Oh, I can smell it brewing.

Yes of couse it exists in my vocabulary, I may just interpret it different from others lOL

Shame the weather has messed up your plans, but I am sure you will find interesting and fun things to do :)

There is a whole big world out there. I know there will be something. Yes, you use the Kiwi interpretation.

I love these sort of stores were you can walk in and do you shopping all in one place as with gifts or for yourself it remind me of the store i visited last week "Another Story" that was a similar store with all these awesome knickknacks they are so fun and enjoyable trying to work out what some of the things ever are..lol :)

MarketFriday - Fruit Fair Display !!

Aren't they so much fun? They really are! I got a smile out of the area they created for the impatient husband, to keep them in the store and keep them happy.

I have to wonder of the purpose of some of these things, yes!!

I am going back today for the meditating gnome! I wonder if that is sacrilegious in some way? I hope you are having a most amazing weekend! You have been quiet over in your side of the world lately. Everything good?

Thank you for stopping in and leaving your link!

!tip

The meditating gnome is a good choice they always bring you peace and harmony.

I put my back out about a month ago and it has been very annoying can't sit at my computer for long anymore it gets very painful i have been to the chiropractor a couple of times already but because my job is always at a computer sitting down it's making it hard to heal up so i have had to limit myself and take time out to do proper back exercises.

Oh, there is nothing like the back hurting! I have seen it unhinge some people. So, I am glad you are taking the proper care it needs.

So the platform had gotten beyond quiet and witnesses are folding their platforms. What do you make of all this and should I be worried?

  ·  7 months ago (edited)

Yep it certainly can unhinge you and effect you in many ways and it's something i would not be able to bare so immediate and proper care is in order.

It has quieter down a lot people don't seem to be spending much time on here anymore maybe they are finding other things that is worth more to them we are always looking for something better right..the amount of time and effort that we are putting into Steemit is just not benefiting or suiting a lot of people like it was unless you are some big whale to me honestly everyday i wonder and think to myself why am i wasting time on here for just a couple of dollars and doing damage to my health unless it turns around drastically i will not be here much longer i know people say it's not about the money but the bottom line we need to survive and our hours spend on here can be turn into more cash doing something else. It has been a great journey meeting some great friends like yourself and if it comes down to me not been so active here anymore i will still drop in and say hello to all the beautiful friends i have met along the way on Steemit :)

I think the reason witnesses are folding their platforms is because there finding there money and time is worth more somewhere else as the way i feel.

It is a very interesting store and had many things needed a fun walkabout. I didn't even get to the section where they had the wine samples and a nicely done wine cellar. We have many Vineyards in this area and they are very big on serving local fare.

Even though they had a lot of kitsch involved here, there is enough interesting stuff to keep you involved. I thought it was cute the way they set up a relaxing place for the men that were stranded in the store as their wives shopped. Now, that is what I call service!

Thank you so much for stopping in and for the lovely comment. I hope you are having a most wonderful day!

Hello everyone, I almost forgot that today is MarketFriday but thank God I saw Steemians posting about it and here I am with my entry MarketFriday Goes To The Flower Market.

I see you went to the garden market again this week 😀 that's a picket burner for sure :) I would definitely buy a stone for myself, those look great. I also love the wooden furniture, which is a beauty. You can't find those these days or if you do, you pay a fortune for it.
I wanted to buy a wind chime but it looks like it's never going to happen as there's no place for that. My dad is not a big fan of wind chimes and I can't put it on the balcony. I was in a shop a couple of month ago and was looking at a few, very nice ones. Walking around I hit one with my head and the whole row started to sing 😀
I also see some beauty products there which of course could be interesting, you know ...

Do you know that I have occasionally forgotten on Thursday morning that it is #MarketFriday? Probably once - but that was more than enough!

The stones are fun and they will put whatever you want on them! It is really cool if you have an unusual name.

Ohhhh!! My father loved wind chimes, but not at night. LOL So whenever he came to visit, I would take it down so it wouldn't bother him. I can just imagine the scene with the wind chimes. One of my kids made one of the chimes sing to hear it and started a riot of music in the store. I was mortified!

Oh, yes!! The beauty products!! :)

Thank you for taking the time to come over, say hello and drop your link! It is most appreciated! I Hope you have a great night!

A post for collection and school, so it seems to me. The flower market is the most beautiful market. I prefer the outside market, I prefer to give money on something alive even though it's not always about perennials.

I have made a market of memories, I hope not to bother some repetitions. You'll understand why. Shopping From Memory ... Holiday Pleasures

Oh, truly! Without even looking, I can feel the heart in a market of memories. It is never a bother! Goodness, man!

I too love the flower market the best. It is always so full of beauty and life, no? I am a little on the slow side getting started on #MarketFriday today. It was so busy all day. I hope things have settled down a bit for you. I will be checking out your post in a bit!

I want to thank you for stopping by and dropping the link! It is most appreciated and as always, I hope for a wonderful day for you!

My pleasure!

Looks like a pretty interesting place! I have always enjoyed garden/gift shops that carry all sorts of interesting bits and pieces... including a share of "kitsch;" we have a few like it in our area.

  ·  7 months ago (edited)

Thank you so much for taking a walkabout with me through the garden market. I'm not even sure what to call it because you are right it is a garden shop and a gift shop and a little bit of everything else. Nevertheless, it was a lot of fun and they had some very interesting pieces, and even though I bought nothing I enjoyed it immensely. It happens to be one of my favorite places to waste time, because, everybody has so much to waste, am I right? I make time for it just so I can waste it! LOL

There's plenty of kitsch inside this place, but for some reason oh, it seems to sell. Goodwill has a good amount of mine, purchased when I was younger or not in my right mind.

Of course, I'm just kidding. What would life be without a little bit of kitsch???

Thank you for stopping by and leaving A most marvelous comet. I hope you have a wonderful day!

!tip

Thanks, and thanks for the tip!

The meditating gnome pretty much did it for me; we really ought to have one of those, perhaps facing our stone Buddha... because, why not?

Why not, indeed!! Sounds like a plan!! The tip in my pleasure. Always.

Absolutely adorable place! And amazing flower, as always! ))
When I lived in my home town, my work place was close to my home, and I used to walk to and from through the city center. There is one special shop there, where I just love to come and check what do they have. Everything was so lovely, decoration, jewelry, souvenirs, gifts for any occasion. I cannot buy anything as it was too expensive for me, but what I got every time was a feeling of a magic world inside of it :)

Thank you so much for an amazing post and reviving my memories!

I wonder, don't they mind you take photographs?

P. S. My link:

Not at all. They don't mind that I take pictures. I asked if I could when I first moved here and they told me I could take pictures of anything that I wanted. So I do! :)

I love window shopping. It is such a nice thing to go and let your imagination flow with the pictures in your mind. Some shops, I cannot spend that kind of money nor want to. Other times, I don't want to. But, always I file it back in my memory.

Did you recently relocate to the town you live in or have you lived there for a long time? I have been in Washington, DC for a little while but, I was actually born and raised in the outskirts of New York City, not far away, but, country out of the city. :)

Thank you so much for stopping by and for dropping your link! Much appreciated! Have a wonderful weekend!

I was joking on Twitter that it was Flamingo week on steemit. Glad to see you got the memo. LOL. Okay let me get this straight. Your garden shop gives out free wine, juice, and cookies. It's not a store. I think you stumbled into a gateway to Narnia. Shhh ... tell no one where it is, except me:)Oh and get the gnome, he will probably come back to life and give you winning lotto numbers:):):)

Just a lovely post and place:) I thoroughly enjoyed​ it:)

Here is my​​ contribution.

https://steemit.com/haiku/@prydefoltz/a-rising-sun-canopy-the-views-from-the-cafe-haiku-and-market-friday-w-dswigle

There are flamingos EVERYWHERE!!! I mean, it is almost summer and they are playing it up double time!! The memo was sent and then a followup! Where were you?? At the planetarium??

Yes! Well, to be fair, the wine is a sample an in small plastic cups. Think dixie cup small. They have setups all over the store and offer it up. They always have their popcorn machine popping, it is pretty big and it is self serve. Wah!!! No service. LOL They do cookies and have juice served with them at different places in the store. About once a month, they crack out some of their hand pressed olive oil that they produce and fresh bread... I could go on and on. I love this place!!

Oh, the gnome!!! Tomorrow! They put him aside for me!!! Hehehe. I'll split the lotto with you!!

Your Garden Market seems to have something for everyone and a gift for every occasion @dswigle. What a wonderful place to immerse oneself ........providing they have a minute or 40 to spare. 😊

But I love, love, love that fuchsia flower image my friend. Sooooooo exquisite and beautifully captured. (U & R )

Thank you so much , Trudee @trudeehunter for the always kind and sweet comments you leave behind. You know, I don't even need anything, but, I can still peruse a place like this all day long. Okay, to be fair, not all day, but some of the day. I need a little more art and a little less kitsch to keep me going!

Aren't fuschia just so beautiful They truly are and I snap them when they first start opening up! I hope all is well with you and yes! The weekend is already upon you!

!tip

My pleasure Denise. 😄 Fuschias always remind me of graceful ballerinas with their tutu's on. They are quite exquisite.

Thanks so much for the wonderful tip and great support. Truly appreciated. 💐

You know it is always my pleasure! Oh, what a beautiful thought! A graceful ballerina!!

Now, when I water my fuschia, I can guarantee that is what I will think of~

wonderful original store! such a variety of goods !!!there you can really wander around for hours and see what they offer. it is so cute that they have free treats for men. men usually get bored until their wives decide what to buy :) I liked the pillows :) such things will definitely make the house more comfortable. your riddle is too complicated for me :)

Oh, I should probably stip the riddles. I am pretty sure people are tired of them by now. :) It was just a way of breaking up the post. I could wander around and look all day. The pillows were cute and I always laugh as there are lots of men congregated there to watch football or soccer or another sport. I am glad they have some place to keep them occupied!

Thank you for stopping by and for dropping the link! I appreciate your wonderful comments! Have a great weekend!'

Isn't he kind of cool? I will be going back for him today. I actually have never seen one like that, I thought he was rather unusual.

Isn't spring wonderful?? It allows us to wander freely to re-explore what winter has taken from us! This really is a fun store and it is part of my garden shop that I go to. It decorates for all the holidays and I just love it. I'm excited to see your markets. Your town really has a lot of neat ones! Always!

Thank you for stopping by and saying hi and dropping your link! I appreciate it!As always, have a great weekend!

Your very welcome Denise enjoy your weekend.

Thank you! XOXO

I so agree, my area really knows how to compete with one another and put out some extra effort to carry the best in town. I love that I have so many to choose from. It makes for some really fun shopping days. I will be sure to keep them coming as I am able.

The stones were fun to find and especially when they carve in your name of something else that you want it to say. I appreciate you taking the time to stop and say hi and to drop the link!

I hope you are having a most wonderful day!

First the dragon, now the meditating gnome? Oh my goodness, so cute. If you don't find space for them, send them my way. Happy Friday dear Denise!

I know! I know! But the dragon was adorable and now the meditating gnome? Hands down, cutest offering of the day!!

I think I probably will go back and get him on Saturday, but if I don't find space for him, I can assure you he will be yours. I hope you are having a most wonderful day! I don't think the weather be any more beautiful than it is. Thank you for taking the time to stop in and as usual,#MarketFriday loves you!!

That meditating gnome is awesome! Wanna do something like that. At least draw it...if I can.

It's true! I love the meditating gnome and was kind of sad that I had to leave without him. But I am pretty sure that he is still there and I'm feeling like I might go back and get him this weekend.

You want to do something like that? Do you do any sculpting? If you do bother to draw it please tag me so I can check it out! Thank you for stopping by and checking out Market Friday!

Thank you so much!! It was fun to go through and yes!! Aren't the flamingo's so cool? I had a hard time not taking one home with me. But, it would look great in Florida, but, not so much here.

Thank you for stopping and dropping your link! Have a most fabulous weekend!

It was very interesting to walk around this market.

I liked a lot of things there.
Thank you for the photos, dear Denise!

And this is my new post for marketfriday

Thank you so much, Svetlana! It's an interesting place to go, especially if you are already there buying plants what other holiday things. They were a lot of things that tempt me, but, at this point I really don't need anything so it's more of a fun sport to Window Shop! Thank you 4 Walking about with me!

I also want to thank you for dropping your link here for me, and as always, I wish you a most wonderful day.

#MarketFriday loves you!

Fuchsias are one of my favorites from when i was little. My sister and i loved pinching the ones that were just about to open and they would pop open. We thought it was such fun : ) I don't do it anymore as it seems a little rough.

It's funny that you should say that, because fuchsia are one of my all-time favorite. And it has nothing to do with the bad things that we did with my mother's fuchsia plant! It's just so very exotic or maybe showy is the correct word. I love their vibrancy!

I'm glad that you thought of such fun because that is what my brothers and I did and now I can't believe that we were those children! Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such wonderful comment.

Have a great day!!

I bet every kid does it ;)

Thank you very much !

Lol!! Yes!!!

We used to draw on the ground with jade tree leaves and pomegranate flower buds too. The jade tree leaves would be invisible right when you do it and then you come back the next day and you can see the writing!

I have never heard of that! How cool!!!

That's a nice little shop, those are my favorite. I don't really like rock decorations though, too similar to tombstones in my opinion.

  ·  7 months ago (edited)

Oh, my!! I never thought of that, but, now that you said it... I cannot move my thoughts from there. Well, I won't be bringing more of those home. I have one as I wrote, but, the way it is perched in the clay pot, it looks like a sign.

I have to admit, I love the little gnome and a few other small things. I am not too much of a trinket collector, but, I do love to look! :)

Thank you for stopping over and saying hello! I hope that you have a most wonderful day!

Wow, nice collection of the Garden Market and i like to buy these types of clocks and timepieces.
Here is my entry : https://steemit.com/marketfriday/@kamrunnahar/marketfriday-pretty-flowers-and-fruits-in-the-nursery

They certainly are interesting pieces, aren't they? Do you like collecting clocks? I have a couple select clocks, but then you have to have a place to put them~

Thank you for coming to say hello and dropping your link!

I hope you have a wonderful evening!

It's so fun to read your post, the flamingo would look great in our garden.

Thank you so much! The flamingos are pretty cool, but, I live in the Washington, DC area and I think they might be too tropical for here... However, I can say that I do love them and they make such a happy flavor to the entire place.

Thank you for stopping over and saying hello! I hope you have a most amazing day!
