Local Bounty

It's time!

That's right, localbounty.org is now open to the public.  We need you!  Easily enter in your favorite places to buy goods locally, or rate and review your favorite ones.  Remember - registration and use of the site are totally free - but we need your support, so consider becoming a member!

Meet with us at Herwig's

Between today and Saturday we'll be at the 2009 Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, or "Arts Fest" as some of you know it. 

We have a stand in front of Herwig's Austrian Bistro and we'll be there all day Friday and Saturday answering questions, passing out pamphlets and letting you experience the site! 

Here are Elizabeth and Amber, two of our founders, in front of Herwig's - Herwig's makes one shockingly good chocolate-covered bacon dessert!
