EVENT Charlottesville City Market October 31st 7a to 12 noon

Only three more weeks to purchase GDO at the City Market for 2009. I will tough it out until November 15th, rain, shine, snow, wind or whatever Mother Nature has in store. If you placed an order at Martha's Market for scrabble tile pendants, I will have your orders with me. I was so pleased last Saturday to collect over 200 dollars in donations for Jack Cason. I also was able to contribute 25% of my total sales for the day. The Daily Progress featured an article on Farmer Jack which made the front page. My Challenge was mentioned and I hope we get a big crowd this weekend to continue our efforts to show our support for Farmer Jack and his wife.

EVENT Charlottesville City Market October 24th 7a to 12 noon

As the season for the City Market is winding down, I am still pumping out loads of new designs. I will have them on hand this weekend. This is the time for you to start stocking up on gifts to stash away for the holidays and winter birthdays. My apologies for not toughing it out last weekend. The cold weather kept me home with family. This weekend, I will be there, rain or shine.
I also want to mention a sad situation that touches me deeply. Farmer Jack Cason was injured badly in a car accident on his way to the market last weekend. He suffered burns over 20% of his body and is at UVA hospital undergoing skin graphing while in an induced coma. My heart aches for him and his family. He is such a good man and always puts a smile on my face (and an apple in my hand) when I make my morning stroll to greet everyone on those early saturday mornings. I would like to donate a portion of my sales for the rest of the season to him and his wife. If you purchase from GDO during the next four weeks, 25% of earnings will go to Farmer Jack. He will celebrate his 80th birthday next week...
