Madtree in July

The Off Market went to Madtree in July and it was glorious.

Here's how it all went down.

The day dawned bright and sunny. Ohio did us an unusual favor by being cool instead of its normal hot, muggy, July self. We threw open the doors and maybe did a little dance of joy. Maybe.

Vendors arrived smiling brightly, waving hello to other vendor friends. As each space was filled with new and spectacular products, the excitement grew. It was chaos, but a beautiful, controlled chaos.

And finally the stage was set!

By the time 10:00 rolled around, the beer was flowing and the aisles were bustling. Too early for drinking? We think not! It's 5:00 somewhere, right? Besides, there were a lot of beers to try so we needed to get a head start.

The sounds of people picking up their must-have purchases, laughing with friends and chatting with vendors were everywhere inside. You all came out in force to and proved shopping small is close to your hearts.

Out on the patio people enjoyed the weather by petting puppies and playing cornhole.

Oh, the puppies!
