I’ll be participating in the Jacksonville Citywide Yard Sale on September 9th and 11th in front of Art Presence Art Center, which is on 5th St. right next door to the old Court House.

On September 10th I’ll be selling and helping at the 2nd Saturday Market (Bizarre Bazaar) which we recently began as a fund- and friend-raiser for Bellview Grange.
