Hearth, A Favorite Holiday Sale

Hearth - Holiday Sale - local handmade goods, professional makers

From Hearth’s Facebook page:

Hearth 6: Annual Holiday Sale!

Featuring the finely crafted work of 6 local artists. Leanne Stothert Painting, Michael Hepher of Clawhammer Press, Janet McIntyre jewelry, Katherine Russell blown and fused glass, Holly Kimola of Holly Horses leather and lamps and Sarah Pike Pottery!

Every year we empty out our house of furniture and turn our home into a cozy pop up gallery. We call it Hearth, because we have the woodstove burning, the mulled wine brewing and along with offering up some excellent gift buying opportunities, we hope to evoke that sense of gathering around the fire on a winter evening with friends.

We are so looking forward to this sale and hope to see you there. Dec 2nd and 3rd, 4-8pm both nights!
