Oct. 7th Team Meeting Notes

Lisa, A Vintage Seller From TheTreeCricket
 Sunday's meeting was a small, but cozy affair at Hasting's in Murfreesboro, with plenty of hot coffee and chatter about the the upcoming holiday season on etsy and in local craft venues. The next meeting is Friday Nov. 16th at 2pm in the same location. Feel free to bring business cards and samples, but it is not obligatory! Here is a blog post about the Nov. meet up, with a list of main points from the meeting to follow: http://borocrafters.blogspot.com/2012/09/team-meetups-sunday-oct-7th-and-friday.html
