David Van: Running The Madison Makers Market Pop-Ups - Tom Ray's Art Podcast

On this episode of the podcast, I talk with David Van who runs the Madison Makers Market for artists, crafters, and creators. 

I had originally met David when I talked to him and his partner Meagan on the podcast about their company Tacocat Creations. Back then David had just taken over the Madison Makers Market.

Today I talk with David about what the Madison Makers Market is, how people can get involved with it, and what it's like to run your own series of pop-up events for creators and artists.

She's written a book called "Om Namah..." available on Amazon .

I'm going to try and see if I can find out how this game was created, designed and why? Here is what I found out about this game https://candy-land.fandom.com/wiki/Candy_Land_Wiki Candy Land is a board game about children exploring a world made out of candy and other sweets that originally came out in 1949. In every version of the game, there are a group of children that go through Candy Land. In the earliest versions of the game, it was a realistically drawn boy and girl.

It's rumored that Eleanor also did the original artwork but I didn't find anything that
