And… It’s November!

Many thanks to all who kept my shop humming for Art Walk on October 26 and First Friday on November 1! I appreciate the conversation, the encouragement, and of course – the $upport!

Last in, first out… I had just finished making this small collage with a page from an antique 
book, vintage typewriter parts, and a vintage clock face, and it sold first on First Friday!

Special thanks to Anne Glaze for lending a hand for Art Walk, and for artsyletters regular Kim Poovey for all the help on First Friday.

With my partner in historical and literary mischief & artsyletters
Chief Creative Promotional Officer, Kim Poovey.
I love happy customers!!

Hobbled/Hopeful July/August Update….

Greetings! After a follow-up at the orthopedist’s office, I was able to give the crutches the boot – :0) – but I’ll be IN the boot until the end of August. I’m only able to work on a limited basis in coming weeks, but I’ve re-opened my Etsy Shop online.  (The 10 percent off no-coupon-needed sale for July is still on!) Open Studio hours will resume in earnest for fall, beginning with First Friday downtown, Sept. 6, 5-8 p.m. (For next week’s First Friday, Aug. 2, come celebrate The Beaufort Emporium‘s 3rd Birthday!! 905 Bay Street. Cupcakes and nice give-aways!! I’ll be there, happy to mingle at ground level. ;0) )

July Open Studio Hours

(*UPDATE*: 7-15: well, now I’ve gone and fractured a bone in my ankle. Not sure when I can resume regular hikes up the stairs & regular hours, but I hope soon!! Thanks. See above for latest! )

(UPDATE:  The studio will be closed July 11 & 12 as I will be traveling out of town for a funeral. We’ll be open several days during Water Festival – look for the sign out front. Thanks!)

Happy JULY! I’m busy in the studio & will open this month for FIRST FRIDAY, July 5, 5-8 p.m. Then, hours will be on the flexible side, with some extra open days during WATER FESTIVAL! :0) See you soon!

Mark your Calendar for First Friday Downtown, June 7!

The Studio will be *CLOSED* June 1-6 for family time, but we will be
OPEN for FIRST FRIDAY on June 7, 5-8 p.m..
Streets will be closed and much fun awaits! Special welcome and shopping for Dads & Dudes. See you then!
(We are at 811 Bay Street, # 3 – look for the sign on the sidewalk and trek up the stairs.)

Beaufort’s First Friday 5th Anniversary gets 15 Minutes of Fame!

I was thrilled artsyletters was the Spotlight Business for First Friday this month. And icing on the cupcake was this TV coverage from Lyndsey Gough of WTOC in Savannah! Enjoy a taste of the celebration. (Ignore the windblown hair!) Link and pictures below.

Rhonda and Bernadette from the City of Beaufort had no trouble finding takers for the yummy “5th Birthday” cupcakes!
(Had my own special sign and everything!)

First Friday and June Calendar


EventPhotoFull_First Friday Poster June 1st - Dads and Dudes

Happy JUNE! We are getting ready for FIRST FRIDAY AFTER 5,                              5:00 – 8:00 p.m. downtown on June 1.  Come on up for a howdy, and maybe a gift for letter-loving grads or literary gents for Father’s Day! :0)  Look for my little A-Frame sign on the 800 block of Bay Street.

The rest of the month we will be either gallivanting around soaking up literary inspirations on vacation, or I’ll be tucked behind the door madly making, making making.  We’ll be back with bells on in July.  My Etsy shop will be on holiday from    June 7-24.
