We just received news today that took us by surprise!
is retiring..
We are so very sad to hear this news.
We will place our farewell orders to them and stock up on our customer favorites.
If there is anything that you need, let us know, so that you don't miss out before they are gone.
Joy and I remember seeing them at their first market 22 years ago.  
We were so excited to bring their designs to the shop. 
They will be missed....

getting the framing caught up from a
fantastic framing year!
We get to see some of the most beautiful pieces.
