My wholesale customers are all over the U.S. On the retail end, many are based in Baltimore since I'm a regular vendor at the Baltimore Farmers' Market on Sunday under the JFX. I also do a fair number [of] events in/around DC.

How do you separate your home life from work when they're both happening in the same piece of real estate?

Separation is difficult. But I do try to set aside some Three-Stone-Steps-free space and time!
