Please show your support for them by not only shopping or learning from them once a year, but all year long! Let them know you saw them at Earth Fair; they would love to hear from you! In fact, Earth Fair can be a significant source of funding for many of the non-profits and small family businesses, so purchase gifts for yourself or others and be assured your money is staying local and supporting a good cause.
