There are some seriously talented artists in Toledo! Check out their work at Art Gallery 505 this month!
Gallery 505 Artists Co-op open late on Market Thursdays. Check out their exhibit - Toledo Made - and score some art for your home and your friends. Tuesdays - Saturdays through July 29.
Di reports: Our tie-dyed shirts came out great and we all enjoyed silkscreening the Camp Picasso logo on the front. We also had another drawing lesson, made Washington state collages and painted our plaster hands.
Everyone is looking forward to tomorrow's art safari where we will find art projects hidden in the wild.
Visit Morgan Arts Centre for next week's Theatre Camp.
Native Soil Farm's Billie Washington laments:
Having a dirty car and a visiting artist has great benefits. I'm been blessed. How am I ever going to wash it now?

Health Corner: What Can You Really Get For $3?
July 11, 2017 Brandless emerged as an online startup dedicated to high-quality health products and food, as reported on mindbodygreen.com. Coupled with locally sourced fruits, veggies and goods available weekly at Toledo’s Thursday Market, and $3 shipping on your first order*, I may have uncovered my next frugalista store.
Their bio: Based in San Francisco and Minneapolis, Brandless was brought to life on July 11, 2017. We’re a group of thinkers, eaters, doers, and lovers of life with big dreams about changing the world. Our mission is deeply rooted in quality, transparency, and community-driven values. Better stuff, fewer dollars. It's that simple.
According to Brandless: BrandTax™ is the hidden costs you pay for a national brand. Additionally they promise: Our products are made under the highest standards of safety, quality, and social ethics such as certified Global Food Safety (GFSI) or Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). They claim all food is entirely non-GMO, over half is organic, without artificial preservatives, flavors or colors. And they stand against animal testing. They partner with the US hunger relief program Feeding America as part of their Give Back philosophy.
All that, and every item they offer is $3. Seriously. First items: peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut oil & apple cider vinegar. And gummy fish with no artificial anything.
I’m trying it out this week, and I’ll report back to you shortly.
