Better Than an Advent Calendar: Elf on the Shelf

Better Than an Advent Calendar: Elf on the Shelf

We were visited by a pixie elf the day after Thanksgiving this year. It’s the third year in a row he’s showed up. His name is Elfie.

My oldest son, G, named the elf. He was sent to us by Santa Claus himself. He comes every year the day after Thanksgiving. He’s even made appearances in New York City and Massachusetts when we were traveling for the holidays.

If you haven’t figured it out. I’m talking about Elf on the Shelf.

The rules are simple.

&
Saturday Dec. 3 from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
@ the Lincoln Street Center Rockland's first indie craft show...
just in time for the holiday.

This will not be the church craft fair that you went to last year...trying to decide between the wooden geese, doilies and the rayon yarn vests in red and green.

This will be the juried creatives fair of Rockland, where artists, artisans, craftspeople, and foodies can sell their wares to folks who are looking for the perfect gift for friends, family and coworkers.  Maybe for themselves, too! 

We will be located in the gym of the Lincoln Street Center, 24 Lincoln Street, with over 50 booths!

Fortune Magazine Features The Gelato Fiasco

BRUNSWICK, Maine – Fortune Magazine featured The Gelato Fiasco in its November 7, 2011 issue. The magazine has a paid circulation of more than 866,000 and estimates a total audience of more than 4 million people.

The Gelato Fiasco was profiled in the magazine’s David vs. Goliath column, which examines start-ups that are taking on big companies.

The magazine reported on how The Gelato Fiasco's Joshua Davis, 29, and Bruno Tropeano, 28, merged small batches of gelato, flavor creativity in the kitchen, and careful business strategies to create a solid foundation for the company and compete against mass-production ice cream conglomerates. The magazine’s graphics team also Photoshopped a wicked funny illustration of Bruno and Josh in boxing shorts.

The article can be read – and the illustration can be seen – on The Gelato Fiasco’s web site at http://www.gelatofiasco.com.
