The sun is shining….the sparrows are excited about nesting….so spring must be on its way! Our annual spring showcase makes me smile, and being we were not able to host it last year because of the lock down, we are extra excited to come out of our winter blues and see what everyone else has created over the winter. And create we have. One of a kind carved mugs festooned with our inspiration from Mother Nature in all her glory. Pots to eat out of….pots to cook in….pots to serve in….and pots that their only purpose is to make you smile with their beauty. Buy a piece to make yourself happy or to brighten someone else’s day. The shelves are filled to overflowing. We are so happy to have our regular group of artisans back and a few new faces to add to the talented mix. Each one bringing something to delight. Jam and honey for the sweet tooth… soft fibres and jewelry to adorn your person….beautifully scented soaps to clean it….paintings, sculpture, stained glass, art and clay creations to adorn your home… treats for your pets…bowl buddies to keep your hands cool and succulents to make that green thumb happy. Thinking summer eating? Infused balsamic vinegars and olive oils, sauces and condiments and local pickles to compliment fresh summer eating. New this year are delightful, feathered friends made from felt with beads and embroidery and exotic wood trays and boxes. A local youth advocate will have a deeply touching book she was involved with, available to purchase to raise funds for her next project. Add in some beeswax food wrappers and I know you will be overwhelmed by the choices. So if you are needing a wedding, Mother’s Day or teachers thank you gift…..we can help out with that. Or if self indulgence is the therapy of the day…. we got that covered too.

So now it is time to talk about the elephant in the room….Covid. We have decided for everyone’s safety to continue with the successful system we used for our Christmas Showcase. Use the App, located here, to book your appointments. We will maintain the one-hour appointment (30- 40 minutes actual shopping time) and a maximum of ten people per hour to allow for good social distancing. We will be cleaning between time slots to ensure a safe shopping environment. Mandatory masks and hand washing upon entry will round out the safety measures. We want to thank everyone for their understanding and timely arrival on the hour for their appointment, as we will need to stick to the schedule.

Remember to bring your own reusable shopping bag to have your name entered in a draw for two free mugs. We will again be collecting non- perishable items and cash donations for our local food bank, and with your donation, you will be entered into a draw for a gift bag filled with artisans works. Of course, everyone attending the showcase will have their name entered for a $100 gift certificate from Pottery by Heather. We are very grateful for your ongoing support. So, book an appointment and come on out for a safe (and delightful I might add) shopping excursion.
See you soon!
