Bazaar Bizarre Boston 2011

November 30th, 2011

It is a real thrill to be a vendor at the 2011 Boston Bazaar Bizarre. This is a show that we have attending several times as shoppers, but this will be the debut as vendors.

In past years, we’ve waited patiently in line to get in (okay, maybe impatiently), and been rewarded with some of the top handmade shopping experiences anyone could hope to have. Some of our most treasured things came from the Bazaar Bizarre. And over the years it’s where we discovered some of our favorite artists.

This year should be no different, with an incredible roster of vendors. Hope to see you there!

Boston Bazaar Bizarre: Sunday, Dec. 4, 12-6 p.m.. $1. BCA Cyclorama, 539 Tremont St, Boston. VIP shopping 11 a.m.-12.

Abby Berkson Ceramics in Craftland & the Providence Journal

November 28th, 2011

Craftland, a wonderful shop full of handmade art in Providence, Rhode Island, is once again expanding for the holiday season, and we are thrilled to be a part of it. The annual Craftland Show groups together work by 170 artists to create a truly unique holiday shopping experience — part craft fair, part traditional storefront. Look for work by Abby Berkson Ceramics at Craftland, at 235 Westminster Street, from Thanksgiving until New Year’s Eve.

We are also excited to learn that a Pile O’ Animals mug was pictured in the Providence Journal last week, as part of their article “The Fine Art of Gift Giving.” (Sadly, we were unable to locate the full article online.) Anyone interested in buying a mug like the one pictured can try Craftland. The Pile O’ Animals design also appears on numerous other items in our online shop, such as an extra-large mug, a juice cup, and a bowl.

Snow Farm Seconds Sale in Williamsburg, Mass.

November 14th, 2011

These pots are headed to the Snow Farm Seconds Sale in Williamsburg, Massachusetts. The Seconds Sale takes place every year, for three weekends in November and it’s a secret weapon of shoppers who specialize in finding unique, handmade holiday gifts.

The sale includes work by a large number of potters, glassblowers and other artists. Many items are seconds and have imperfections that can be sometimes almost unnoticeable. Other items are just old and no longer fit in cohesively with the artist’s current body of work. They all have one thing in common: they are available at lower-than-normal prices — sometimes shockingly low.

Click here for directions to Snow Farm, or check out their Facebook page for photos from this year’s Seconds Sale. The sale runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday for the last 3 weekends in November, from 10-4 each day. There is a $1 entry fee to benefit the Summer High School Program Scholarship Fund.
