American Made

Did you have a nice weekend my dears? Autumn is in full swing in my part of the world. That means the weather's chilly and the leaves are showing off fall's finest colors.

In mid-October, I went to a beautiful craft fair in New York's Grand Central Station. I found it so inspiring, I wanted to share the highlights with you.

The fair was called Martha Stewart American Made. It honors those who revive lost art forms and pioneer new industries. It celebrates small businesses and artisans, handpicked by the editors of Martha Stewart Living, who are turning well-designed goods into a way of life.

You know you're in for a treat when there are free sugar cookies!

Lots of free samples like baked goods, pickles, cold cuts, tea and spreads.

There were a handful of crafting tables so guests could try Martha Stewart's craft supplies. Employees of the company were on hand to demonstrate use and cheer on everyone willing to try. 

There was also a mini market showcasing handcrafted items from all over the US. Accessories and jewelry, food and drink, home goods and decor, paper goods and personal care products were well represented.

There were also a lot of DIY demos and book signing providing great audience interaction.

Tomorrow, we'll take a peek at the companies honored during the event. See you then!
