OneWomanStudio tote bag at the recent Hall-Dale Art and Craft Show in Farmingdale, ME. The tote is fashioned from a SolidGold dog food bag which appears to be made of a reflective type of material. I think it would make a great trick-or-treat bag!
Joyce is also sporting a gorgeous strand of chunky amber from local jeweler Laurie LaBar of Spirit House Jewelry - my very entertaining and delightfully irreverent neighbor at the show!
But wait! That's not all!
But was it luck or was it karma? You see, Joyce co-owns McKenney Tree and Landscaping in Richmond, ME, which earlier in the week had donated their services to hang a banner over Main St. advertising this very craft show!
Yup. See how that works ;)

It's that time of the year! Time to browse for that perfect little something for that someone special. While this would be a nice thing to do ANY time of year, the 'holiday season' is the most traditional - and let's face it, the most commercialized - gift-giving season.
But to help you cut down on (and hopefully eliminate) those invariably stress inducing and wallet emptying last minute shopping trips (to stores I would rather not mention...), I have compiled a list of high quality, fun, and most importantly - LOCAL - sources of high quality, fun, and yes - LOCAL - gifts! Collectively, these sources are know as: CRAFT SHOWS!
Check out my 2011 Holiday Show Schedule for a list of shows which feature the best of the best in locally made art and fine craft.
Have fun! And please shop responsibly ;)
