    That’s not just any vendor at the C&P fair, that’s my wife, Jen! If you like what you see but can’t make it to the fair, check out her Etsy shop at wwww.etsy.com/shop/ratherfine

      Thanks, Paul! Machel kindly sent photos but there wasn’t a name and I didn’t have time to ask. Will update the caption :) – Tracy

    No texting on desk, Paul.

    A rare exception for a worthy cause :-)

    Since I’ve had a few people ask, the “I Heart West Seattle” pint seen here is $15, and (as my own last minute Christmas gift to my neighborhood!)I can promise to fill orders up through Christmas Eve. Last minute shoppers, unite! The etsy listing has all the info for my WS folks: https://www.etsy.com/listing/173002799/i-heart-west-seattle-i-heart-ws

Sorry, comment time is over.
