    My wife and I will be there in the morning. We’ve placed strict limits on the amount we can spend on each other’s Christmas gifts, but I hope for some finds there!

    Filmed by Bike is excited to be there with… our new trailer! We’ll be showing a special exclusive extended version of our trailer, hot off the press, produced by Daniel Hill.

    We’ll also be selling t-shirts and discounted DVDs.

    And, because roasted nuts are the bomb, we’ll give you some of our freshly roasted hazelnuts if you you buy a DVD 3-pack (2008, 2009 and the Greatest Hits v. 1)

    Hey, Jonathan.

    Nice promo write-up. So many talented people. You listed over 50 participants!!

    Anybody bringing moose-ears? Those should sell well. It suddenly felt like winter when I rode down from Vantucky for First Thursday tonight. There was ice in the puddles on the MUP over the Columbia channel…

    Seeya there.

    Anyone know if they’ll accept credit cards?

    Nick, a few crafters take checks, and a few are set-up to take credit cards via paypal on their laptops. But cash is king here — be sure to come well-supplied with it!
