Hawthorne Street Fair (this sunday Aug 15th!)

Hi folks,

I am finally doing a street fair in my own hood! The annual Hawthorne Street Fair is this Sunday, and it also coincides with a Sunday Parkways event.  Things will be a-hoppin!

I will be showing lots of new work!  I am sharing a booth with the lovely Holly Hestand.  See her beautiful jewelry here.  You can find us on 31st street, in the Artichoke Music Parking lot (the same block as the Hawthorne Hostel).

SUNDAY AUG 15th, 11- 5 pm

Besides artist vendors, there will music stages, kids areas and sales at local businesses. I even think I heard the Labrynth is playing for free at the Bagdad if you feel like being holed up inside on a really sunny day!
Hope to see you there! Click on the higlighted links for more info and specifics.

New coaster sets

Last week, I dropped off a bunch of work at Trillium Artisans for a photo shoot.  My work is currently available at their retail location, but in the coming months will be in their etsy store and World of Good Ebay site!
