Spreading Fire (in a good way)

This weekend was busy. It was my first ever “trade show,” VegFest, and I had no idea what to expect. So many questions like…how much product do I bring? do I need help? where do I load my stuff into? Then there’s the existential questions like, will people even like the products? are they too spicy? do they taste good? But somehow, despite all the questions, it all comes together in end (though I could have lived without the flat tire on my way into the convention center).

We are in some new stores! Have you ever been to Tender Loving Empire? A great store! If you love handcrafted, small batch gift types of things, from cool jewelry (fact: that was the word I lost to in the camp spelling bee 5th grade summer) to baby gifts to hand-made health products — this is your place!

Another stop to find Fire Brew if you’re in the Gorge…head to Farm Stand in the Gorge. A great spot to get all your seasonal produce and picnic needs when you go on those awesome hikes in that area! Here’s the owner, Rob, sampling Fire Brew to a friend of mine, Amy, who just happen to pop into the store one random day. Small world!
