Hey! I am assembling my yearly Maine made/sourced gift guide for the BDN. What should I include on that list? Also, feel free to weigh in over on Facebook, where there is already a long and vibrant thread. Wherever you make your suggestion, I appreciate it!
grittymaine : CSA farm share for your favorite relative!
jamiemercuriophoto : I'm always happy to create gift certificates for family photography sessions :)
lizinmaine : This kid and her adorable face. ❤️
_.marbled.rye._ : @mallorysophronia, @mizubrand those are my votes!
mallorysophronia : Aw! Thank you @_.marbled.rye._! We love and appreciate the support so very much! ☺️💕
spacekasebacon : Alex, I nominate my talented friend Ebenezer at @akakpojewelry. A native of Ghana, a MECA grad and now a Mainer, he makes beautiful jewelry and incredible Maine designs on textiles and metals. Maine is lucky to have him and you'd love him. He's one of the best 💗
frompinetopalm : @44northcoffee gear and beans!

I got to use this gem in my blog post about the Fryeburg Fair. "Common Ground represents the Maine that out-of-staters hold in their imagination, the idealistic cobstruct that a lot of metropolitan Mainers envision one day inserting themselves into, whereas Fryeburg is the Maine I actually grew up in—rich in attitude, gun racks, cattle and brightly dyed feathers affixed to roach clips."
bellbleheen8 : Awesome
jillsady : Baby steed! So cute...and spot on!
summerinmaine12 : Perfect. Fryeburg forever. Taking my newborn there a couple years ago was a huge milestone in my life. I can wait to read your new post on my lunch break.
onbradstreet : Ugh. No thanks. I couldn't deal with all the noise, cigarette smoke, and racism. Common Ground isn't idealistic or fake, it represents my actual life and values.
megplease : First year we DIDNT go to Common Ground, as it less and less represents what we value and feels uncomfortably crowded, expensive, and showy. The elements that hold true are still a part of our daily life, and even the extras are at arms reach. If I wasn't 8 months preg, I'd choose Fryeburg over Unity. It represents another aspect of gritty, real Maine culture, and is the largest agricultural fair in the state. I wish it were more apparent that attendees at both fairs have many common values and are similarly compelled to present and share knowledge for fun and the benefit of all our great state's residents.
summerinmaine12 : @megplease well said. So many common values.
laurieoneil : Ditto @megplease.
d_s_edwards : Yeah, but which one hired my wife to play a set? Point: Common Ground!

I'd say this is a fairly accurate reading.
actorbenrow : Haha that's my mom.
alexsteed : @actorbenrow! AMAZING. She lobs about 2 or 3 Internet bombs at me a day. Tell her I say hi!
patrixbanx : Has the noway90 of angry eagle avatar-fame chimed in yet.
actorbenrow : 👍👍
rarar4chel : Wait, but how is she going to make the determination final? Is there like a second stage of judging you involving a talent competition?
emersorcha : New age? Where are your power crystals, dude?
alexsteed : @emersorcha In my vagina.
emersorcha : Oooh. That explains the sparkles.

So... Considering the past week, hanging out at the Blaine House was not how I thought it'd end. It was a huge honor to be @kyle_katalyst's guest at the Maine Sucicide Prevention Program's annual event.
emersorcha : Remind me to talk you about your experience meeting that woman...
