Yesterday I went to the Augusta Festival in Elkins, WV. I wanted to see how large a crowd it attracted for my tent next year. It was lovely. All the tents were lining the paths, under a thick blanket of trees. There was a nice size crowd of shoppers. The first tent that I visited was by far the most interesting and talented. I spoke with Vie of http://www.zendik.org/. She was selling jewelry made primarily from handmade paper beads, made from disguarded magazines. Of course I 'had' to buy myself a necklace. After all, I'm supporting the arts. Right?! Besides it will look great with a tee shirt.
