Handmade Here in Westboro

On June 16th, I'll be joining these 4 talented artists/artisans for a one day open house sale at Kim's home in Westboro.  Kim makes amazing silver jewellery that sells quickly!  Her cousin Gwen knits & felts bags and purses that are truly unique.  Lise's rich, textured paintings brighten up any room and the ladies at Flo Glassblowing transform glass into luminescent forms.  If you haven't already discovered it, Flo Glassblowing offers lessons and glass blowing group parties at their studio on Gladstone Ave.  Check them out at www.floglassblowing.ca

I'll have some new items like snack trays and soap dishes along.  If you're looking for a teacher gift, you might consider a mug, a small condiment pot, or even an egg separator!  I'll have larger landscape platters, bowls, sets of goblets and baking dishes if you're looking for a wedding gift.

Browsers and shoppers alike are welcome to come and enjoy the day with us.

Handmade Harvest craft show

This Saturday is the spring 2012 edition of the Handmade Harvest craft show, held in the Almonte agricultural hall at the fair grounds.  If you are one of the first 50 customers to gain entry when the show opens at 10 a.m., you will receive a complimentary swag bag, full of assorted crafty items made by some of the vendors.    Guaranteed to be line ups for the swag, so get there early!  The $2 admission makes you eligible for the gift basket door prize which contains products donated by each of the 53 vendors (a $500 value).  Sounds like these gals know how to organize a fun show.  I'll be there with my colourful pots--lots of small items including new soap dishes and snack trays--and old favourites like egg separators, egg cups, wee bowls, French butter dishes, mugs, etc.  Check out this web site for more details about the show.  www.handmadeharvest.com
