  1. I bought a great crocheted octopus from a vendor this year at the festival. She was also selling mermen and mermaids; in fact my husband thought they were carrots for some reason. The artist and I had a good laugh at that. I regret not buying the mermaid and now am on a desperate search for it! Any help??

  2. I am highly interested in attending many of your neighborhood events. My name is Natalie Santiago, I'm a highly skilled henna body artist. I teach henna at some local community colleges (as well as Women's Studies), and use all natural, all organic henna. You can look over my website and let me know what you think. Please reach me at with any information about vending.

  3. This is a fantastic website, could you be interested in going through an interview concerning just how you made it? You can visit my site.
