oh to live on sugar(loaf) mountain

and now for something completely different...

chair by elizabeth shaw


fresh off of the freshest indie craft festival that is crafty bastards, this chickadee has an offer for you and a friend to attend one of the premiere showcases of traditional craft in the country. the sugarloaf craft festivals have been promoting the made by hand ethic since 1976. they take place throughout the year in various locations along the eastern seaboard, and their "flagship" show is just up the road in gaithersburg, md.

sitting right here are two tickets for that very same show which is being held november 20, 21 and 22nd at the montgomery county fairgrounds. these tickets are in search of a home...maybe you could welcome them into your home? then you can use them to attend any one day of the event free of charge. it is a great opportunity to check out another aspect of the craft world. along with the crafts there will be food vendors, musical entertainment and demonstrations by participating artists. read all about it right here.

wanna go? just leave a comment on this post explaining why. the winner will be chosen at random the first week of november. reminders about the event and drawing will be posted throughout this month.

I've never been either! It's funny, because Gaithersburg is not that far away, but when I think of "mountains" that just makes it seem like a day trip. :-) The tickets would make my day!!
