Well, the key is turned in, the sign is down, and the shop is officially closed. Now, onto new adventures! There’s no time to waste with all the ideas I’ve had brewing around for so long!
First up, tomorrow night I will be heading over to the Goodman Community Center for Gallery Night!
There will be around sixteen other artists and the cafe will be open for food and beverages! I’m glad I won’t be missing out on this great, local event.
Next, I will be heading over to my dear friend Kim’s orchard on Saturday for Apple Blossom Days.
I will be doing a metal stamping workshop but I also taking pre-orders for stamped gifts for Mother’s Day so email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in details on that.
Finally (well, for a few weeks anyway…), Jerome and I will be packing our bags and heading up to MN for one of my favorite shows, the St. Paul Craftastravaganza next weekend.
Phew! I got tired just typing all of that! Time to get working…
As I’m sure many of you have noticed, no one has been around the shop much lately. Well, I have found that with the super cold winter (and insanely, I’m talking RIDICULOUSLY high heating bills), then pipes bursting, then one thing after another, that it was a sign for me to move ahead to my next adventure. So, the brick and mortar will be no more. But wait! Don’t be sad! You will STILL be able to find all your favorite Glitter goodies! I will be restocking my local stores as well as the ones not so local. I am still planning tons of events (two as I write this!). I will hopefully be working on my awesome trailer that has been residing in my backyard for three years. And, I will be able to take care of the needs of my four growing children.
I have so many ideas growing that I can barely stand it. I feel like being cooped up in a building was too much for a wild flower and I know my dear friend Michelle will agree. When you have hands that can’t stop moving and a mind and heart pulled in a hundred directions it is too much to be planted in one spot.
I will check back in soon. Thanks and love to all of you for the support you have continued to give me over all the years..
We have finally set the dates for our spring markets! The brick and mortar shop will be open on the following dates:
March : Thursday 28th 3-7pm
Friday 29th 12-5pm
Saturday 30th 12-5pm
April : Thursday 25th 3-7pm
Friday 26th 12-7pm
Saturday 27th 12-5pm
Sunday April 28th 12-4pm
I will have more info on the specific markets to come. We also may be open on occasion days that are not listed on here. If we are, I will do my best to let you know ahead of time!
Ok, ok… you talk, we listen! I had a bunch of my crafty friends ask to be included in our Earth Day market, so we decided that it would be fine to allow handmade (without necessarily being recycled) arts & crafts into the Earth Day Market!
The more the merrier at our crafty markets!! We do still have space left, so click on the Vintage Flea and Finds link at at the top of the page for vending info.
As of today, we will not be having regular, set hours at the shop. As many of you have noticed since the holidays, we have had reduced hours already, and with four kids, three at different schools and a three year old on top of that, it is near impossible for me to be at the shop even all the days I have tried!
What I am going to be doing is hosting open house, pop up days and possibly some workshop days at the Atwood brick and mortar. I will announce the days I will be open as soon as possible so you can plan to stop by and see the new goodies, ’cause even when the shop’s not open, I’m always making new stuff!!
I WILL be open tomorrow, Saturday, March 2nd so stop by and see the new spring wares, and check back soon for the list of days to come.
thank you all for your continued support!
