Easter Weekend at Seattle's Public Market

I spent Easter weekend at the Inn at the Market in Seattle. Each morning, the local flower purveyors hauled in buckets and buckets of tulips, daffodils, and other flowers, arranging many of them in attractive bouquets. Each evening, they packed up the unsold flowers and took them off to their warehouse until the next day.

It seems like a lot of work to me, but I noticed throughout the day that sales were brisk. Most bouquets were priced from $10 to $20, which is a steal compared to what a florist would charge. Each morning I walked the market at around 8:00 AM before the vendors were completely set up and before tourists arrived. The market was both peaceful and beautiful.
