My Booth at Market

Since I began growing lavender I have been a vendor at one Missoula market or another; actually, I have vended at all of those downtown. For 8 years I held a booth at Clark Fork River Market under Higgin's Bridge. All but one year my transportation to market was one tricycle that you see in the photo (taken by D. McAdoo). I retrofitted the trike to fold up and out as my display and sales booth. It came with the basket between the two back tires. And I attached the one to the handlebars and the two to the sides. What makes it 'minimalist' is the amount of space it takes up, it has no carbon footprint (other than a little methane) and the time it doesn't take out of my life/pocketbook.

About Lavender Lori Parr

Lavender Lori was recently described by a friend as elegant and rugged. Elegant is a stretch but rugged sums it up.

She never was one to play by society's rules or let anybody tell her what to do. And when others thought her a fool for trying something outside the box of normal reality she did it just to prove to herself that it could be done. She has bucked systems most of her life. Some might call her fiercely independent. She is, without a doubt self reliant and self sufficient and maybe stricken with a light case of LFWS - Lonely Farm Woman Syndrome due to circumstances that led to her sudden uprooting to different living quarters, a 90 mile round trip from her base town of Missoula, Montana.

She is the pioneer for growing a couple types of lavender that were never before tried in Montana, distills her own brand of essential oils and hydrosols, and teaches workshops on various topics.
