Winter is taking its sweet time leaving us this year….but we are sure spring is coming! We were tucked in warm over the winter and spent the hours making pots! 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. Each one bringing something to delight. Jams and jellies for the sweet tooth… fabric purses, caftans and jewelry to adorn your person….beautifully scented soaps to clean it….paintings, sculpture, stained glass, wood working and bark carving, 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. Softly scented soya wax candles in a variety of sizes would make a lovely gift for mom or that end of the year teacher gift. Thinking summer eating? Condiments made from local produce, perfect for the patio season, are coming our way. If you loved the little birds created from felt, beads and embroidery…. animals have now been added to the menagerie. Our wood worker is back with a fine selection of exotic wood trays and boxes. Long handled shoe horns created from oak wine barrels would make a perfect Fathers Day gift. 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.
We are happy to continue with booking a preferred time for the showcase. There will be an app on the website to book your shopping experience.
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 artisan 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 a time and come on out for a delightful shopping excursion with your friends. See you soon!
