Matt and I were very honored to be asked to join the team of judges for this year’s Garden & Gun “Made In The South” awards.
This contest, rich in southern craft, design and ingenuity, is a very special project for artisans who enter, and a real big treat for the spectators that get to read about the winners later this fall.
It has been such a pleasure watching these guys grow their now-globally recognized brands, partly because of the opportunity that Garden & Gun provides with this project.
It’s true. Believe it. If you have a craft and a dream, then you can make it. For a little boost, enter this contest. It helps!
P.S. If you don’t already subscribe to G&G Magazine, do it now!
