We were invited to participate in this event. I am a huge fan of the Strawbery Banke Museum, so we decided to give it a go. Hope to see all of my friends and customers (lots of which are both) there. Just remember THIS EVENT IS ONE DAY and ONLY ONE DAY. So if you miss it you will be sorry, I am sure. See you on October 8th.
