    Ok guys, I said that we would have a gathering at the Tractor Supply Co in Oxford, Maine when it came. They built it, now...Will you come?

    I am looking at Saturday May 30, 2009- I give TSC the good news that we've committed to a date! This is going to be neat, its next door to the Oxford Walmart (one business in between), they have a Dunkin Donuts, in about 11/2 miles Pizza Hut, Ocean Pearl, Subway, and further up is McDonalds, Burger King and all that. Plus a row of beautiful pine trees for shade if we need it.

    The full buzz is the Milford, NH crew and when I mentioned it a few days ago, they wanted to know how to get one here in this area- so here we go! Lets show them how its done, in style!!!
    Please, this is the beginning and I want to hear what you'd like to see! All critters are invited, crafters- just bring your own tables and stuff!

    I spoke to a few customers while I was in there and they seemed so excited! I'm so glad, its good to see the area intersted. Now, Craigs List, how do I do that?

    Quote:I can help but won't be able to do a full day at one. Farm chores take too long to get away for a whole day unless it is a dire family emergency. BTW..my blue splash chick that I got from you at the last Chickenstock is so beautiful and quite the charactor.
