Mainers are amazing people, aren't they? Not that people all over this great country aren't amazing, too, but we're a super-special breed up here in the Pine Tree State.

Anytime there is a cause that needs attention, you can count on Mainers to get behind it, and the ongoing war in Ukraine is no exception.

There is going to be a 'Maine to Ukraine' vendor fair this Saturday, April 16th, at the Maine State Armory off of Western Avenue in Augusta.

The event will take place Saturday from 9a-3p and feature booths from Arbonne, Scentsy, Pampered Chef, Thirty One, DoTerra, ID Life, Norwex, Color Street, Tastefully Simple, Park Lane Jewelry and more.

Booth space is still available for people who are interested in showcasing their crafts, business, or services. Booth spaces are only $30 and a double booth is only $45.
