Plaid Friday & our Studio Warmings!

Hey Friends! We've had a moving experience this summer, by which i mean we moved the studio from west central WVa to the rolling hills just west of Gettysburg PA.

The studio, not yet cleaned up for your visit!
And then we got busy what with Pennsic and Maryland Renaissance Festival. Things have calmed down a bit now that those shows are over and i've finally gotten time to set up a studio opening. In fact, we're going to have 2, cause we know how frantic the holidays can be scheduling-wise.

The first time will be on Thanksgiving Weekend. In fact, we'll be a part of Plaid Friday, a national movement that's all about shopping locally &  supporting diverse merchants. To quote from their website:
"Plaid Friday celebrates the diversity and creativity of independent businesses. Plaid Friday is the fun and enjoyable alternative to the big box store "Black Friday", and is designed to promote both local and independently owned businesses during the holidays." 

So, we'll be setting up shop in our new studio, which is only 45 minutes from Frederick MD. We'll have plenty of awesome pottery fresh from the kiln and Tuatha will be with us as well, with her usual selection of wonderful Celtic jewelry, cards, stained glass and beautiful handcrafted rustic wood hooks, chairs & walking sticks. 

All of this is happening Friday Saturday & Sunday November 25, 26 & 27 from 10 til 6 each day. 

If you wear plaid, we'll give you a 10% discount! 

Come see our wonderful new studio and enjoy some hot cider & mead as well as some tasty treats to eat. And there is a wonderful Christmas tree farm just down the road from us not to mention downtown Gettysburg which has some wonderful galleries and local shops (& great restaurants). I'm telling you, it's the perfect anti-black (aka PLAID) Friday destination.

So put on your plaid and put our address into your gps: 446 Railroad Lane Orrtanna PA 17353

We can't wait to show off our new studio!

If you can't manage to come visit on Thanksgiving weekend, we're doing it all again just before Yule, for all of our last minute shopping friends:

Just Saturday and Sunday this time: December 17 & 18 from 10 til 6 both days.

We're thinking of making the trip - what fun local attractions do you recommend stopping by while we're up your way? - Nina

i recommend Seven Springs Tree Farm, for cut your own trees:
and my favorite coffee house in Gettysburg, the Ragged Edge:
and my apprentice recommends the Wills House museum &/or the Jennie Wade House, both are small local museums in downtown Gettysburg. And if the weather is good, the National Cemetery is also worth a wander.
But of course, the most important stop is our studio!!! Can't wait to see you!
