When Hurricane Earl hit our area in the beginning of August, the entire market flooded. The river came up fast, and Gloria got her refrigerator out with a few small things, but didn't have time to get her display shelves out and they floated away. She has been displaying her produce in wooden crates since then, but mentioned a few weeks ago that she really needed new shelves. Tom, who loves a good project, offered to help build some for her.
Last Sunday afternoon Tom took the necessary lumber down to the market and built these display shelves for Gloria, with the help of Gloria and her partner Blad. Tom and Blad had fun, and Gloria got exactly what she wanted. And I can't wait for my next trip to the market to see them loaded with produce!
