Adventures in Business

It's spring and a young man's thoughts turn to visions of popcorn -at least around here. Thing2 has become a dedicated foodie, as interested in making it as he is in eating it.For me, spring is the beginning of the craft fair season. They're moderately profitable, and there are worse ways to spend a sunny day in Vermont than sitting in a meadow surrounded by other artists. Thing2 loves to come and help me set up. He loves arranging things. He usually brings his own sketchbook to keep busy, and there are always other kids at the other booths to play with.This year he's more serious, wanting to start his own booth. In addition to selling Icelandic style hotdogs that we discovered on our trip, he's decided to start selling flavored popcorn. he's been testing recipes for the last couple weeks, and we been finding stray popcorn everywhere. It's a small price to pay for doing our part to help small business in America.
