    If I could give this event 6 stars I would! For the first year of this event, the turnout was awesome! the vendors were varied and relevant. The workshops were fascinating and engaging, the ritual were short, but meaningful. The location could not have been better. It was easy to get too, was just the right size. A wonderful location. I can't say enough about the organizers who put this all together. Congratultions, and thank you!

    I plan to be a vendor, although at the moment, the fees are a detriment.

    I'm a maybe at the moment. I'm nursing an injured 4-legged child and depending on his progress over the week, I may or may not be comfortable leaving him alone after a full day by himself while I was at work.
