What a great scene right in front of my little Three Stone Steps space at the Eco Festival that kicked off baltimoregreenweek. All morning long, there were groups of kids drawing with chalk on the asphalt. While many kids came through during the day, this little group above came first.
Really, whenever I do one of those early spring festivals at the home of Three Stone Steps‘ worldwide headquarters in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, I’m always delighted.
In this case, I was incredibly amazed at all the positive things that people are taking on to make the city, state, country, and planet a better place to live now and into the future. Also, getting out with my eco-chic bags, silk scarves, and business card cases and getting feed back is always great. And, let’s be honest, a sale or two never actually hurt either.
In the grand tradition of the essay, which I don’t remember ever having to write, How I Spent My Summer Vacation, I bring to you my Earth Day essay.
First, if you’ve read my blog. I’m not the hugest fan ever of holidays. But, I did celebrate Earth Day by having a table at an Earth Day Expo, an information only deal, at the Community College of Baltimore County Catonsville campus. It was a lovely day, with dogwoods and red buds in bloom, and azelas starting to bloom. The campus was also lovely and historic. I loved the students, a diverse, happy, curious, and above all, incredible nice group of kids. (I’ve been away from a campus for so long, that I realize that first and second year college students are now “kids,” as if I needed another reminder that I was old.)
Ah, but dear reader, I have been very busy.
I’m getting ready for my inaugural trade show, for museum store buyers, down in Tampa. I’m super excited to show off Three Stone Steps’ new line of bags made of recycled, repurposed mosquito netting, and the new bag made of recycled big plastic garbage bags that are woven around blue yard.
Eco-chic at its greenest best, I tell you!
