 Thinking about our very first Mad Hatter event that was held in this little yellow grange four years ago, it is amazing to us that we have grown from seventeen to thirty vendors, and still have a little room to grow. We feel our vendors/artists are truly the very best in the Northwest..... we can honestly say....we love and appreciate all of them and treasure the gift of their friendship. Our Mad Hatter Event is a special time of year for us.....first it is our favorite time of the year, second it is a time we get to spend with our friends. Our show has become a ritual of friendship, that is very important to us, all of friendships we have made along this journey we will keep, and cherish forever.....a friend gave me a card years ago and it read, "our friends bestow grace and perform miracles, God speaks to us through our intimate chats we have with one another....our conversations, our friends listen to us, and we listen unconditionally and we are committed to each others happiness."I believe this with my whole heart!

I hope you can see the love in these photos. What an amazing circle of friends, I love how we draw close to those we love. This is were we feel rooted, such an important need for our soul...... Now let the show begin!

There were customers and happy, happy, happy, shoppers! We have received many emails with words of encouragement and thanking us for all the great shopping and the great prices all the vendors were offering!
Things we love and some of the amazing booths!!
