This past weekend I participated in CraftBoston, a premier craft show at the World Trade Center in Boston, MA. 200 vendors from jewelry to furniture each had a booth showing their handmade, beautiful work. I was quite impressed! There is so much original work out there, no one should have any reason to give all their dollars to the big box stores. Plastic is not good for you or the environment anyway. Thanks to all those that put the show together and to those that showed up to shop in these challenging economic times.
