Nothing I love more than the Iowa State Fair.  I can't explain why.  I love to go there, I did my internship there, I want to camp there, I want to spend the whole week there.

Typically, I go at least nine of the ten days - wandering around with no real agenda - something on a stick, a look at the chickens (OK, that's a must-do), a cold one fr Stockman's, a little breakfast at the Dinner's the definition of a lazy day.

Just in time for the best celebration of all that makes Iowa awesome, our Field Noted County Fair notebook is back in stock.  Three notebooks in fair-ribbon Blue, Red + Yellow covers filled with interesting IA facts - all perfect for giving as gifts for returning friends/relations and recording your own Fair memories.  Add notes, scraps of paper, photos, Grandstand act autographs...start a yearly fair tradition for your kids!

Each set of three notebooks is 100% US made by Coudal Partners* + Draplin Design Company** and only costs $10!  

The Des Moines Iowa Sweet Corn print is one-of-a-kind letterpress by Power and Light Press and is only $16 with $2 from each sale going directly to help fund the Des Moines Regional Skatepark (tapped to be the largest open US skatepark ever).

The US Map print is one of two remaining from a super limited edition of ten prints, printed by UK's Hey! Day Collective.  It's been a great seller, so hurry if you want it! $45
