Jun 07, 2005 — 17 artisans from the North Country caravanned to New York City this weekend. They set up booths at one of the largest one day street fairs in the country. The fair stretched for 20 blocks down 2nd avenue in Manhattan. Woodworker Dave Crosby called in by cell phone just after the fair ended.
Dave and the other artisans are part of the Northern Adirondack Trading Cooperative; a project organized by the St Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce. The cooperative is an international finalist for a World Chamber award for micro-enterprise initiatives.
