Earth Fair 2011

Last Saturday was my town's 4th annual Earth Fair.  I've been a vendor at this event for all 4 years, and I have organized it for the last 3 years.  We were at a new venue this year due to our last venue undergoing renovations.  There were 23 vendors, 2 bands, a dj, and a storyteller.  The above picture is of my table.  I was selling a variety of items made from recycled materials.  There were a lot of cool items for sale as well as a lot of information ranging from light pollution, how to make a solar oven, solar power info, town recycling info, the harmfulness of GMOs, and how to reduce your paper usage.  Allied Waste provided popcorn.  When you returned your empty popcorn container to be recycled, they gave you a mini trash barrel filled with candy. It was so cute.  I walked away with some outdoor furniture made from reclaimed wood, a very cool bird house, a necklace made from a beer bottle, and framed pressed flowers.  I also left with joy in my heart from people saying that they wanted to do it again next year, and that a few of them would help me put it together and advertise it.  Yes, the planning for the 2012 Earth Fair has begun.

This event was covered by The Patch (an online newspaper).  You can read their article here.

You may have notice a lack of blog posts from me lately.  It was because I was getting ready for the Earth Fair.  You'll be seeing more of me now that things have calmed down.


  1. I would love to see a picture of the necklace made out of beer bottles. :)

  2. I'll take a picture of it, as well as the other items I bought from the fair, and post it this week.
