Winter is Coming!

Ok Ok…. so I did watch the popular show, “Game of Thrones,” but only after long days of working really hard to make great pots!  And with winter comes the holiday season. So…..

Cake plate with cake

This Saturday, May 2, come on out for my Annual Open House and Seconds Sale.

Once again I have asked my friend Raquel, of Raquel’s Creative Cakes, to bake up something yummy, so you will not want to miss it!

There will be other food to nibble on, people to chat with, pots to look at and hopefully purchase.  REMINDER:  Mother’s Day is the following weekend!!!

older work - jars

Older work – Blue, Green and White Jars from 2010

For those that prefer my more quiet side,  I will be selling my older work at 20% off.  That is all the blue, green and white ware.  There are some really nice pots in this color scheme still left!

Also, don’t forget this is the one time I bring out my not-so-perfect pots (2nds) so you can grab some functional yet blemished pottery at some really great prices!

Soap Dishes, new work

New work and great gift – soap dishes!

And for those of you that want to give back, I plan to donate 10% of all sales on Saturday to the Swain County United Gift Fund (UGF).  100% of the donations to the UGF go to Swain County non-profits.  I know there is need all over the world, especially in Nepal right now, but there is an amazing amount of need right here in our county and I want to help.  Please help me make a difference!
