Maple Valley Days 2017

I did it!  I did my very first vendor event, and I chose a whopper of a show - Maple Valley Days.  Our little city essentially shuts down, has a parade and a carnival and goes for broke! There's an estimated 10,000 - 15,000 attendees every year.  It is so much fun to attend as a patron, but it was also fun to do as a vendor!  I collected many odds and ends for my display over the last few months, I really wasn't sure how it was going to all going to look, but I have to say -...

Mango butter is a lot like shea butter - but it has a higher fatty acid profile, which makes it a more intensive moisturizer.  It’s rich in oleic acid, a mono-unsaturated omega-9 acid; and stearic acid, a saturated fatty acid. It's also rich in...


Easter with The Robinson's

Melissa Robinson

We have a long standing tradition here in the Robinson Household for Easter.  Since we live in the most amazing city of Maple Valley, which is a very short drive to Seattle, we have a plethora of seafood available to us year round.  I don't now how it started, or why, but for some reason, we use Easter as an excuse to gorge ourselves on a bounty of seafood and call it "Brunch".  If you're in the Puget Sound region, you may have heard of Salty's at Alki in West Seattle.  You may have even heard of their brunch -...
