Three Stone Steps will be on the 1400 block of Bolton Street, in the lovely Bolton Hill section of Baltimore tomorrow to sell great eco-chic messenger bags, silk scarves, and many more of our great fashion accessories. The festival runs from 10am to 5pm.
Now, I know that given all that’s happening with the election and the economy, not everyone’s mind is exactly on buying a cross body bag made from post-consumer waste black plastic trash bags, but, really, it’s as good a time as any.
Speaking of the economy, Bolton Hill is in Rep. Elijah Cumming’s district. I’m not in his district, but Three Stone Steps is actually on his district’s border. (His district begins across the street from Three Stone Steps’ worldwide headquarters.)
While this is not new news, I did think that the Bolton Hill Representative did a knock out job when questioning our our taxpayer bailout money was spent by AIG:
If you have trouble hearing this, part of the text follows:
CUMMINGS: Let me describe for some of you the charges that the shareholders, taxpayers, had to pay. AIG spent $200,000 dollars for hotel rooms. Almost $150,000 for catered banquets. AIG spent $23,000 at the hotel spa and another $1,400 at the salon. They were getting manicures, facials, pedicures and massages while American people were footing the bill. And they spent another $10,000 dollars for I don’t know what this is, leisure dining. Bars?
Well, yet another one of those, it makes you think, huh?
Hope to see you tomorrow!
