What? It’s sold out, and it’s not even lunchtime? Congratulations to Belle Meethol of the Little Thai Kitchen who was one of three new vendors at the Kauai Community Market (Amy Chun was busy passing out Kung Hee Fat Choy offerings!) who made their initial appearances Saturday!
Liz Hahn (you gotta check out the new Copper!) is back from Cuba, which she said should be our sister island, Elvrine Chow was back with some Joyce Takahashi epidendrum for a colorful Kung Hee Fat Choy offering, and Ada Koene was trying to tell Melissa McFerrin-Warrack about the lions at The Shops at Kukuiula where Thuy Crawford was amazed that Ada knew what an ao dai (it’s a Vietnamese gown) is.
Kudos to Melissa, David Sosner and all those “The Ocean Around Us” collaborative partners on a great run! Jean Souza, James Yamamoto and Jim Jung were all on hand Saturday on the final weekend’s offering where Vel Khzhereva of the Keiki Injury Prevention Coalition (nope, no Mark Scribner!) was doing cross-marketing with her portable car seat to offer on-the-spot sizing to see if keiki needed an infant seat or a car seat booster. Makayla Timko “graduated” already, but mom Donna said a couple more weeks — just to be safe.
OK, time to start checking out the Waimea Town Celebration …
