The Simsbury, CT Septemberfest, sponsored by Simsbury Meadows Performing Arts Center
 kicked of its 2014 season at 5 p.m. on Friday, September 5. Non-Scents Table The picturesque area located not far from the Farmington River in Simsbury, CT was filled with members from the town and surrounding areas.  There were inflatable bounce houses for the kids, and great food and beverage kiosks surrounding the stage area offering delicious samples from local restaurants and pubs. The fields were lined with tents occupied by local businesses such as, Anderson Windows and Doors; Liberty Mutual Insurance, The Hartford Courant, McLean Care, and The Popcorn Mama! Of course, Non-Scents fit in perfectly and was represented by our hallmark of bright colors and whimsical creations. Non-Scents Booth Friday night brought beautiful weather, and people came to listen to the bands play and check out the booths.  Non-Scents received a lot of attention, especially from kids wanting to learn origami.  The Hartford Business Journal came out to take photographs that will accompany an interview they had with Elizabeth. On October 1, 2014 Connecticut will become the 27th jurisdiction (26 states and the District of Columbia) in the United States to enact Benefit Corp legislation. This legislation will provide legal recognition for the social entrepreneurship movement in which Non-Scents is a part of. Saturday was the Home Show at Septemberfest, sponsored by the Simsbury Chamber of Commerce.  More tents went up as early as 7 a.m. to get ready for the crowds of people who planned on spending the day, learning about what their surrounding towns had to offer, and just enjoy a beautiful day.  Thom Greenlaw from The Ethel Walker School stopped by and told us how much he enjoyed the Non-Scents flowers he received when he himself was hospitalized in I.C.U. A representative from The McLean Home came by and admired our Non-Scents flowers, thinking residents at the home might really enjoy them.  Unfortunately, the day was cut short by severe thunderstorms with winds that blew through windows! Although our tent was completely blown down, our flowers remained untouched! It was truly a magical experience. Sunday was sunny and warm—the last day of the event.  It was a great time and we’re so thankful to have met so many wonderful people.  We’re hoping Tom Vincent from the Simsbury Performing Arts Center invites us back again next year.   Until then, stay crafty!
