    I would love vendor information about next year’s event! I sell Beijo designer handbags made of corfram, which is the same material as tuxedo shoes and military boots! These fashion forward handbags are an alternative to leather and affordable priced at $35-$100 each! Each year, I participate at the Richmond and Charlottesville Vegan Festivals and my product is a crowd favorite! Many thanks for the consideration Dawn Howard

  2. Hi Dawn – check out the DC VegFest website (http://dcvegfest.com/) for contact information. I’m sure they’ll be updating with 2010 information for vendors. In the meantime, feel free to post a link to your site here…I’d love to see what you have to offer.
