It’s HEARTSYLETTERS Time!

Greetings, Friends! Just a month until Valentine’s Day… I’m busy in the studio conjuring up gifts for the letter-lovers in your life. (Or for yourself!) We can use as much love as we can get these days, right?

My physical shop remains closed to the public (except by appointment) until we’re a bit further along the pandemic road, but my Etsy Shop is open 24/7. I’ll be posting lots of heart/love-themed items on Instagram for the next month; feel free to follow along here. And, Thank You! (I DO love my customers and supporters!)

First up: These fun, funky chokers made from 1950s and 1980s ingredients – for those with “questionable” taste, perhaps? :0)

Studio Hours Update – By Appointment for Now

On Hold/By Appointment….

Greetings, Friends. I’ve had a few open studio afternoons this month, but for the time being with an eye on virus numbers, will keep hours by appointment only: My shop is *tiny* and hard to socially distance in. I’m more than happy to arrange pickup for any items ordered from my Etsy shop http://etsy.com/shop/artsyletters.

It’s open 24-7. (We will decide about December’s First Friday that week. Night on the Town is not happening in Beaufort, but lots of shops WILL be open for First Friday.) Thanks!

VIRTUAL FIRST FRIDAY – Tonight!

Click here to see my promo video with sneak peeks of new items! Then join Nan Sutton on Facebook Live (via the Downtown Beaufort Merchants Association page) from 6 to 8 p.m. to join in the fun, and do some shopping from your comfy couch!

Open Studio Hours for March 2020

**Thursday, MARCH 5 UPDATE** – And I thought yesterday’s weather was challenging! Storms are on tap all day today, so I will need to dart back and forth to tend to a nervous wee beastie doggie. I’d like to keep my sidewalk sign in one piece, so I’m just going to use today to get ready for First Friday. See you tomorrow eve!!

Open 12 noon to  4:30 p.m. most Wednesday through Fridays, but please note exceptions for the first half of this month!  On First Friday, the 6th, we’ll be open 
5-8 p.m. with a fun drawing every half hour beginning at 5:30.  
(I will be out of town the second week for a writers/illustrators conference.)  
Happy Spring!!!
(My Etsy shop is open 24/7!)

Friday Studio Update – Brrrr.

Good Morning! I LOVE working in a historic building, but I need to upgrade the heating options in my small space. Looks like wind chills will stay in the 30s today, so even if my sandwich board sign on the sidewalk were to stay up, it’s going to be awfully chilly all day. I’ll be darting in and out but not keeping regular hours. Please email or text or call if you need me – Thanks!!

NOTE for next week – For Feb. 26, my shop will be open as usual on Wednesday, 12 noon to 4:30 p.m, but I will be traveling on Thursday and Friday for an author/poet school visit.

February Open Studio Hours


Happy February! Hours are a bit limited this month – writing deadlines, an author/poet school visit, and catching up on Etsy orders! If you’re in Beaufort, DO come downtown for First Friday on the 7th from 5-8 pm.¬†:0)

Open Studio Hours – December 2019

HOURS UPDATE for Thursday, Dec. 5 – Catching up on shipping orders; we’ll be open later today for “sunset” shopping from about 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. [Friday, Dec. 6, we will be open for FIRST FRIDAY from 5 – 8 p.m. It’s Night on the Town; you won’t want to miss it! :0) ]

‘Tis the Season!
