Wake up and rage!
I'm Aaron, I'm gonna be 30 on the first, and I'm planning on leaving my current employment to travel full time as of next year summer of 2020. I've been blowing glass for about 6 years, and I'm hoping to make a job of traveling full time and blowing glass at different studios. Please message me if you have a spot I could park a truck for a couple weeks or so in exchange for some glass lessons or work.
Anybody here go to the barter faires around the Pacific Northwest?
So glad to have found such an awesome community.

Dude!!! Right-on! I was apspiring to initially hit the road with a mobile glass blowing set up.. Hit the road before all of that could happen though. Working on getting a space here in Washington built and glass-blowing ready. PM me and we can talk about possible space to park your vehicle, and indulge in glass oriented rhetoric**

Generally if you just search 'barter faire' on the ol' Facebook you can find the dates. The preseason is in Ford, WA in late April, and the big one is the Okanogan family faire in Tonasket, WA in October. There is also a few in between. Just little barter festivals with a little music and lots of drumming. Very traveler friendly. Find me slinging glass, mention STP, and I'll toss ya free pipe for the weekend.

I sure wish it wasn't always facebook. I stopped using them years and years ago.

We have in the past. I think Tonasket is coming up soon.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $5.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $5.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $5.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $5.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
