Athens Truly does support its local artists! I am proud and grateful to live in this community….
Despite the poor weather we had on Saturday folks showed up, and even Sunday was a very positive day. Geoff Pickett did fantastically well on Saturday, and by the end of Sunday Jeff Bishoff had the best weekend out at my house in the five or so years he’s been coming out. And Julie Greene sold enough of her trivets, magnets, jewelry and ornaments to make a solid $100+ donation of the proceeds to the Athens Canine Rescue.
If you didn’t make it out to this sale, I can just picture you all supporting other local artists. There are so many fine artists in this community, and on all our behalves I would like to thank you all for supporting the arts and for buying locally made handcrafts. These are good values to support, and you get to help your friends and neighbors earn their living at the same time. Thank you all for supporting us!
If by any chance you are still in need of emergency locally made gifts, my studio will be open by appointment, and I should be around much of this week. A friend is coming by this morning, in fact. Don’t be shy! I still have plenty of pots and am more than happy to let you look them over if we can arrange a time.
Happy Holidays to all of you!
