August is a very busy month for us… schedule is full of events, and deliveries and production. Many of our artist friends shudder at the thought of the August heat, and outside art fairs. But we honestly look forward to it. Almost as if to charge up the storehouse with sunshine, we look forward to the warm days, and the bright sunshine. Here is our schedule for the week:
Wednesday, August 5th – During the day Steve will be making a few deliveries. Our stock is low at several shops, and we do hope to get them replenished.
The evening brings a nice and fun event: We are making a huge salad and traveling to Berea for the Berea Fine Arts Club summer picnic. The club is made up of a lovely collection of talented artists working in a variety of genre. Being surrounded by such talent is both encouraging and the opportunity to learn, and to share what we know. It should be delightful.
Thursday, August 6th: Steve will be at Seven Hills Recreation Center for the weekly Farmers Market. The market runs from 4-7pm and varies in offerings – fresh produce, locally made sausage, our soap, and several other local artist handcrafters.
Saturday, August 8th: We will be in Omsted Falls for the Art Stomp at the Old Wine Cellar at 7990 Columbia Road from 1-8pm. This is a small art fair featuring the artists of Berea Fine Arts Club. The wine shop is part of the collection of interesting shops of Grand Pacific Junction and the quaint small town world of Olmsted Falls.
Sunday, August 9th: The Affair on the Square in Medina’s public square will be happening from 11a-5p. This is a first time doing this event for us, so we look forward to a new exposure to a different market. Medina’s public square is a beautiful classic victorian place, with a small town charm.
In between the events we have lots of serious production. Steve is busy making several batches of shave soap, and at least a dozen batches of best sellers, like lavender, and sandalwood. I will be busy in the studio dying more silk. In addition I am working on infinity scarves, and plan to have them ready for the weekend. Photos will follow.
