wildlife and beneficial insect habitats.

of Conservation Voters
Clean Power Plan. The League of Conservation Voters is a non-profit,
non-political organization that aims to support conservation issues in the
state of Wisconsin as well as nationally. Right now we are working to defend
the EPA's clean power plan which is an initiative to lower carbon emissions
by 30% by 2030. This is an important transition for Wisconsin to make away
from coal power that we must import toward wind and solar power creating more
sustainable work for our state. We must take action to support the Clean
Power plan though signing petitions and writing letters to decision makers
who have been vocal critics of the Clean Power plan.

and up-cycle wood furniture. We believe in keeping usable items out of
landfills and re-using old wood and other building materials to create 'new'
items. Although we sell all kinds of used furniture at our brick n mortar
store in Adams county, Wisconsin, we only bring our re-purposed items for
sale at shows.
My husband repairs and paints old wood furniture, bringing it back to life.
We may bring some smaller resale items such as old jewelry and other home
decor. We would prefer to have a double booth if possible (20' x 10') as some
of our pieces are rather large. I'm not sure if this is a good fit for us,
but I thought I'd inquire anyway. Are there other vendors that sell items or
