John Swartz manned a booth, but said he does it for his school buddy, Glen Cauffman. Mr. Swartz had many interesting things to tell me about the angora goats that Mr. Cauffman raises. For one thing, their hair grows an average of an inch every month. The farm will start shearing their goats in about two weeks. The resulting mohair will be shipped to Reading, made into yarn, and knitted into the wonderful socks, hats, and gloves, which the table offered for sale.
The attributes of the mohair socks seemed incredible but verified by Mr. Swartz who personally had tried them. He told me that you can hike all day with these socks on your feet and never get blisters. They are also very helpful to diabetics to control the tingling in their feet. He recommended the fingerless gloves for people’s arthritic hands while holding a fishing rod. PureAmericanNaturals
Arts in Vinyl
Another unique craft vendor, Catherine Creigh, sat surrounded by glassware and signs. I asked her about her technique, and she told me that she uses a Cricut cutter to make vinyl stickers to create her products. Her service has supplies favors for an assortment of parties including baby showers and weddings. She even carefully packs and ships her glassware to long distance customers. Catherine's Arts n Vinyls
