Homeward Trails Raffle Opening Day!

At the end of last season, a whole bunch of you filled out a vendor questionnaire for the Market. One of the questions you answered was "If we organized a raffle to benefit a local charity, would you be willing to donate a piece of your artwork?"

Well, a whopping 100% of you who completed the poll answered YES to that question. So, let's make it happen! Our charity of choice is Arlington's own,

Homeward Trails Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization that provides pet adoption in Virginia, Washington, DC & Maryland. This amazing group of animal-lovers finds homes for dogs and cats rescued from high-kill animal shelters or whose owners could no longer care for them. They save literally hundreds of animals a year.

So, whataya say we hold a raffle for Homeward Trails on Opening Day? They'll hang out with us, share some information and host a raffle, where all ticket sales will benefit their organization.

Crafty May-sellers: If you would like to donate a small item (no more than $20) to the raffle on May 8th, please contact Jessica at or call me at (202) 536-9714 for more info. This is completely voluntary, folks. But if you decide to donate a little something, I bet the karma critters will bless you from above. And I'll give you a hug.

Thanks everyone!

So happy with the support going "to the dogs (and cats)". We are so proud to be a part of such a wonderful group of market vendors.
