Hatley’s mission is to create fun, well-designed, nature-inspired apparel and gifts for the whole family in an ecologically responsible way. We love the soft cotton and beautiful, whimsical designs for adults and kids. Another thing we can’t emphasize enough- Hatley products last. The cute bear PJs you just bought will get passed down over and over. This sort of quality is why we love Hatley so much. We are thrilled to have one item of an assortment of different Hatley products in every goody bag.
Thank You to Our Silver Sponsor!
The Vermont Higher Education Investment Plan (VHEIP) is the state-sponsored 529 college savings plan. The plan is administered by Vermont Student Assistance Corporation (VSAC), Vermont’s advocate for students in their pursuit of higher education. While your kids are small, think BIG! By opening a college savings account (starting with just $25), you’re creating opportunities for your child’s future. Students from families who save even small amounts for education are three times more likely to go on to complete college or other training after high school. It’s easy to get a college savings fund going, and with VHEIP, Vermont taxpayers get a Vermont state income tax credit on their annual contributions.

Thank You to Our Very Own BVTMB Staff Photographer: Luann BaileyLuann is an exceptionally talented local photographer who focuses on family and wedding photography. In her own words,
It is my mission as a photographer to help people tell their stories. I love stories – they define who we are. The joy of falling in love, the birth of a child, are examples of beautiful stories that become a part of us. It is at times impossible to express the extent to which these beautiful moments can impact our lives. It is my goal to help capture the beauty of your story through my photography.
