It's the most wonderful time of the year!

We're back, just in time to remind folks about one of my favorite events of the Holiday Season:

Please join us in the beautiful bucolic Maryland countryside for the annual


At ART of FIRE's wonderful compound in Laytonsville Maryland Saturday and Sunday December 5 & 6 and then again December 12 & 13 From 10 till 5 all 4 days.

As has become tradition, TUATHA, that wonderful traveling gallery of Celtic Loot will be sharing our space and our neighbor from the Maryland Renaissance Festival, Allen the Printmaker, will be in Art of Fire's gallery- that's 4 amazing artisans in one stop!

But wait, there's more! We'll be selling mead making kits and more to the point, we'll have mead SAMPLES from Ambrosia Farm- as well as hot cider and of course, Theda's amazing cookies in the gallery! And GreenMan Leather will have some good stuff, we've got some great sage bundles from D's native american pals & i've finally got some hand knitted hats to sell- you gotta check out my Pumpkin Hats for adults! And Acorn Hats. And Gnome Hats too!

And, there's even more: we're just one stop on Countryside Artisan's Studio Tour, which has some great new studios nearby- you can pick up a map from us or download one from their site:

You can get all of your holiday shopping done without ever setting foot in a mall. We've got gifts for Celts and anyone else with great taste, and it's all handmade by folks who's passion for what they do shines through into the art and craft they make and sell. It's a gift not only for the folks you give to, but also to yourself- you don't have to go to the mall or through the computer, you can actually get out into the fresh air, meet real people, share some mead and cider, talk, laugh, relax and get your holiday shopping done at the same time!

We can't wait to see you there. Please come and visit, cause I miss my Maryland (and DC and Virginia) peeps. I wanna catch up & get some hugs & maybe even sell you some pottery while i'm at it!

PS bring your friends & relatives, spread the word... i'm broke & would love to meet your pals, especially if they appropriate great Celtic pots & other loot!
