DEAR SUN SPOTS: What is the best way to sell crafts in the Lewiston-Auburn area? — No Name, No Town

ANSWER: There are many craft fairs in this region, especially before the holidays.

Your public library can be helpful if you don’t have a computer.

DEAR SUN SPOTS: I’m a 17-year-old junior at Lewiston High School, and my family and I have decided to fundraise to help those in need in Haiti. We are planning a bottle drive on Saturday, Feb. 13, to raise money to benefit Haiti. If you have any bottles to donate, please call us at 795-6791, so we can make arrangements to pcik them up. Thank you for your support! — Justin Fortier, Lewiston


ANSWER:
Sun Spots is sorry that she didn’t get your letter in time for your bottle drive. (Sun Spots only picks up her letters once a week. If your letter is time-sensitive, e-mail is the best bet.) Hopefully, you still want some bottles.
