Let The Shows Begin!

It’s 2023 and we are finally back to a full summer schedule of shows. While we have done a few trunk shows since the Covid-times, this will be the first year we will be doing selected juried craft shows since 2019. In fact, it’s been so long that our show tent had to be retired because it developed leaks along fold lines from lack of use.
