Martha Stewart "American Made" in Grand Central Vanderbilt Hall was back again from October 16 to October 17 from 8:30am to 7:30pm. There were so many fabulous vendors all "American Made" products. It was fun to see some old friends like Crystal and her husband from "Vintage by Crystal" and Nancy from "Parcel" and meet some new friends. Martha and her "Support Team" were great as usual. The craft team were lots of fun helping us make bracelets and molding clay and using punches. There were seminars that you had to pre-order, hopefully next year I can attend.

|Cyndi - Ken Freeman creator of "Vermont Rolling Pins"|
Ken Freeman's creations are gorgeous. It is so difficult to pick a favorite one. I looked down at Ken's hands and he proudly showed me what love and passion he has for creating these rolling pins. Every scar every bruise had a story of the creation he had made. To think how many Grandmothers, Mothers, Aunts, Uncles, Chefs would use this to make their own beautiful tasty creation. These would make a great Holiday or any day gift for someone you love. (Vermont Rolling Pins)

|Shane Confectionery, PA|
Sweet! What else can I say about Shane Confectionery? This young adorable girl could have sold me the Brooklyn Bridge. She was as Sweet as the Sweet candy and chocolate covered pretzels. The candies are molded in vintage forms and look too cute to eat but I bought a few turkeys and ate 1 and must say it was so worth it. I must go visit them in Philadelphia.
|Julie Nolan Jewelry - based on a 19th century Swiss calendar of the constellations of the Zodiac|
This photo came out worse than the others I think I need to get a professional Cannon and learn how to use it!! But the blurriness of this photo is not my fault! The woman trying to hide made a big deal out of not being in the photo. I asked first and the gentleman said yes I still wanted to post because the jewelry was like nothing I had seen before and wish I would have purchased a few for myself and as gifts. The jewelry is based on a 19th Century Swiss calendar of the constellations of the Zodiac.
What Martha Said about Bloggers: “Who are these bloggers? They aren’t trained editors at Vogue magazine.” Ha! Neither was she...... I am not an angry blogger. I do not consider myself an expert in anything not even of my own life. This "blog" is mine and I chose to post or not about randomness of my life. Boring, fun, bad photo's....definately! I personally don't like her blog. It is too sterile could have her logo and a little more content. I like you Martha no matter what you say. So bloggers keep blogging away and have fun!!
