Follow-Up: What Else to Bring to a Colony

On last week’s blog post on Facebook, there was a suggestion from someone* who has been to the Vermont Studio Center that you bring along flip-flops, since showers are shared. This reminded me that I also bring a plastic tote bag (from Clinique bonus time!) to carry around toiletries, since at VCCA, two people often share a bathroom.

You won’t go wrong bringing some quarters and a little bit of laundry detergent in a Ziploc, either. There probably will be a change maker--or people with change--and there probably will be leftover detergent sitting around, but if not, you'll be set. On the other hand--avoid the whole laundry issue if you can by bringing more underwear than you think you'll need!

*Thanks, Laurel!
