If you become a vendor, please let us know. I'd like to visit this market and support the vendors and a reminder when it opens would be grand.

Thanks and good luck

Is West Trade St. considered the west end now? Of what downtown Charlotte? I know years ago it was plagued with hookers and run down hotels, but is calling it West End not just bringing up some bad connotations?

West Trade St has been cleaned up since the days you describe. It is now almost exclusively either condos or the campus of Johnson & Wales from Tryon all the way to I-77

The Historic West End is a wonderful idea. Many new vendors want to display their work but are unable because of high vendor fees. This festival will attract business. Hopefully there will be a lot of new vendors and not the same local established ones.

A typical response from Mr Bill. Nothing to add to or further the discussion, only a personal attack.

Is that another racist comment coming from you?

Your racist comments are here for everyone to see.
Nick Mackey, Gloria King.

Now some of you crap stems from the fact that you're a simple minded "gadfly", but that doesnt account for your racist outlook that black people in positions of authority are guilty of crimes.

That's called racism "Margie".

How do you know that I'm not black, Stalker?

As to Ms King and Mr Mackey, they were accused publicly of inappropriate behavior. All I have done is report it. Ms. King was especially appalling since she was milking a public charity. It doesn't matter to me that she is black, only that she betrayed a trust. Same with Mackey. If you think that's racism, that's your narrow, hate filled view of things.

And what's with the Marge. Are you looking for a date?

Oh, and one final thing. Goodbye A$$hole.

You're simply not believable.

And furthermore, you don't have any first hand knowledge of the truth. You don't just report, you try and put your spin/opinion on these stories.

Saying you're not racist doesnt cut it when contrasted with your behavior.

And I know you're not black because you're so stupid.
