I took a few photos and some notes for ideas that I'll share below:
* At our Herb Club's table, one of our members displayed a pint jar of honey in which she had submerged sage leaves. This, of course, will flavor the honey and give it a different taste twist. I was imagining that lavendar honey made this way would be lovely. Actually, the sky's the limit - experiment!

* Across the way was a local garden club who shared lots of ideas using recyclables in the garden. One easy and clever one was to stuff scraps of yarn pieces into a suet cage for the birds to make their nests. They also had a sample of a firestarter to use for your campfires. Simply stuff a toilet paper tube with dryer lint!
* One of the vendors was selling all kinds of herbal baked delights. From rose geranium cookies to lavendar shortbread to anise biscotti to rosemary cookies, there was a whole host of interesting ideas to get me inspired to create such goodies in my own kitchen.
