This Labor Day Weekend

It's all happening this weekend folks! We have quite a few busy HOSTies out and about and some running for cover...

Our Cat of catiahades is at the Bellevue Labor Day Festival in Bellevue, Idaho. In the run up to this event, Cat ran several promotions in the Etsy forums inviting sellers to send her their promotional material. She collective some fabulous items and prepared some really exciting promo packs with mixed goodies to offer for sale at the event this weekend, with all proceeds coming to HOST to be used to help Etsians in need! Fantastic idea Cat - we are really proud of you for coming up with it and putting in all the work to collect and collate the promo packs. In addition to the promo packs, Cat will have her Etsy shop range of signature kitsch jewellery and items including her super fun, and funky-shaped crayons!

Our Kara of CoryellDesign has a stall at Koneheta Park in Murphy, NC, for the Labor Day Heritage Festival Arts and Crafts Show - follow this link for detailed information and timetable . When she is not enjoying ice cream, buggy rides, funky music, or rescuing her beloved dog pack from the nearby 'cooling off' stream, Kara will hopefully be busy gift-wrapping for the sales fairy! CoryellDesign offers delicious jewellery incorporating fabulous gemstones, to suit a range of budgets.

And our Mother and Daughter team of Serenity from Cornucopias, and !Spring from yodamoon will be holding down a stall at this weekend's ArT the Beach event at The Lincoln City Cultural Center, OR. Follow this link for more information about this 2-day event: If you are in the area, stop by and check out this friendly family stall for beads, jewellery, and handmade clothing including !Spring's (fabulous, fabulous, fabulous!) signature bloomers.

In contrast to these HOSTies, our Maggie of CrochetMaggie is staying firmly put at home with her family in Denham Springs, LA, where they are bracing themselves for the approaching hurricane Gustav. Maggie has had a busy time - as have so many others - running around preparing for the arrival of Gustav and stocking up on essential supplies. Maggie, everyone at HOST is hoping Gustav will just *pouf* and disappear leaving you all safe and sound. We are all praying, or lighting candles - whatever happens to be our thing - for you and for all those others nervously waiting to see what sort of mood Gustav arrives in... Warm, safe wishes to everyone in Gustav's path - we hope you, your friends, your families, your homes, and your businesses will come through unscathed and safe...
