Conversations at the Pie Cart.
As a home based vendor I can only sell my pies at a Farmers Market or my roadside stand. When I first started my business I had a table in the driveway and that was my roadside stand. It didn’t take long before I wanted something a little easier to use. I didn’t want to have to drag the table out every time I had a customer so Ross came to the rescue and fixed me up with something that I absolutely love.
He converted an old baby buggy into a pie cart. It is perfect and I love the conversations I have when people are picking up pies. Abigail came all the way from Chicago to get a pie. She was 5 years old and was an avid fan of the PBS show I was on, A Few Good Pie Places. She watched it a lot. I invited her into the kitchen and she was so excited when she saw my counter and she said. Oh, this is where all the pies are made. She was grinning from ear to ear. It was the sweetest thing.
I enjoy visiting with my customers at the pie cart. We talk about family, who they are sharing the pie with, what their plans are for the weekend, just small talk, but I love getting to know my customers. They have become friends to me. Most of all I love to see the smiles on their faces, knowing they will be enjoying a wonderful pie, made especially for them.
There will come a day when I no longer will be baking pies, not anytime soon, but I think more than missing baking pies I will miss the Conversations At The Pie Cart.
