Taken by her daughter, Michelle Sprague, this is a photo of Robin Caudill's booth. Lazy Dog Gardens sells at Boise's Capital City Public Market in September 2010. Robin tries to piece together items she's thrifted or found at auctions (like the watermelon basket in the foreground) and linens she's sewn or found to make her booth look more inviting. The watermelon baskets are almost always commented upon by customers.
