1/24/09: The third annual ONE Fashion Event sold out Higher Ground Saturday. Local boutiques, designers and model-wannabes shook their stuff at the fundraising event for the Boys & Girls Club of Burlington.

Even the Obamas made an appearance wearing self-referential Flashbag designs.  For the grand finale, members of the Boys & Girls Club walked the runway and showed off designs of their own creation.

Music: Pretty & Nice, Pink & Blue, "Lazy Bumblebee"

Obama-rama [112]

1/20/09: Euphoric Vermonters flocked to Nectar's Tuesday morning to attend Obama-rama, an Inauguration Bash hosted by Democracy for America and Vermont Daily Briefing.

The 200+ rowdy crowd responded to President Barack's inauguration with spontaneous applause, the occasional boo (for guess who), Bloody Marys and mass consumption of gravy fries.

We spoke to some of the revelers about their current mood, what the day meant to them and their hopes for the future.

Music: Silent Mind, 2012 Here We Come, "Make it a Party"

Champlain Islands Winter Farmers Market [111]

1/3/09: Farmers markets are not just for summer anymore.  Winter markets are sprouting up all over Vermont this year. 

Champlain Islands Farmers Market is a group of farmers, gardeners, crafters, artisans and bakers who have been selling their goods together for 4 years.  This is their first season of winter markets and you might be surprised by their wide selection of tasty and colorful offerings. 

Sophie3It's definitely worth a trip out to the islands for Sophie's fresh buttermilk donuts, Sylvie's homemade soap and Jennifer's delectable sandwiches.

Music:  Greg Davis, Curling Pond Woods, "At My Window"

Please note: There will be no Stuck in Vermont episode next week as Eva is escaping to the tropics.
