We are participating in this fun event for the first time this year. Our final show of the year. This is a great event, I went last year as a shopper. Lots of cool folks making beautiful things locally, a tremendous spirit of community and giving in the air. This is the best way I can think of spending my time - among the company of others, doing what they love and exchanging those gifts with others. There is food, too!
One of our favorite events of the year is this sweet, small show of local artisans at the Berkshire Botanical Gardens. The Holiday Marketplace has two events, actually. Friday, December 4th, there is a somewhat fancy cocktail party from 5-7PM. Dress up and have first pick of the wonderful wreaths and plant makings the Gardens has been putting together for this event all fall as well as first choice of the artisan work (like mine!!) that is on view and for sale. The rest of the weekend the event runs from 10AM - 5pm (closes at 4 on Sunday). The Holiday Marketplace is held in the visitors center, and is a wonderful opportunity to buy all those organic, holiday details for your decor. Keep it natural and local this year!! The originality and breathtaking wreaths, amaryllis, paper-whites, cyclamen and a variety of unusual holiday greenery are all potted up in wonderfully tasteful ways. Reasonably priced, perfect gifts. Also, the select group of artisans from the neighborhood will knock your socks off. My own porcelain giftware, serving pieces, and dinnerware, Aubry Spoons, JK Home, cutting boards among others. This year they are featuring a special artisanal food group. This is guilt free holiday shopping at its best!!
Friday 4 December, 5 PM – 7 PM: Early buying cocktail party (ticketed)
Saturday 5 December, 10 AM – 5 PM: Open to the public
Sunday 6 December, 10 AM – 4 PM: Open to the public
“If Black Friday is synonymous with all that is wrong with capitalism, then the worthy antithesis to this unofficial sale-worshipping holiday is the Basilica Farm & Flea” – Cool Hunting
Hudson River Exchange presents its now famous (infamous?) Farm and Flea at the Basilica in Hudson, NY - a well curated collection of local makers, food growers and producers and all around fun stuff. This will be our second time at this event, but our commitment to Hudson River Exchange runs deep. Kate and Stella run a tight ship and care about everyone - artists and buyers alike. We are lucky they are here and doing this. I am glad to be part of it all.

New York Now, previously know as the New York International Gift Fair, is the only wholesale show I do each year. My work can be seen in the Lost and Found booth, #7643. Janet McKean is my trusty rep and you can order anything in the catalog from her. She can also broker large projects if that is what you are after.
Join us for this magical evening of food, cocktails, wreaths and entertainment as we invite you for a first look at the Garden’s 2014 Holiday Marketplace. Get first pick of our wonderful selection of wreaths from our Gallery of Wreaths and the widest selection of crafts and gifts from the Garden Gift Shop and our talented, local, artisan vendors.

The studio has been busy this summer, filling orders, getting organized and working toward this mid summer mark. There will be plenty of new work to see and purchase, as well as a treasure trove of archives cleaned out and up for “fire sale”. Unique, older work marked down to move out. Come and get gifts, add to your collection or just splurge a little. Support the arts and the small studio movement!
This year is the 10th annual Hidden Garden Tour at the Spencertown Academy in my beautiful, rural yet sophisticated home town of Spencertown, NY. Nestled in the Hudson Valley, Spencertown boasts some pretty amazing gardens and some very dedicated gardeners. This year's organizers include Madaline Sparks, the garden editor at Real Simple Magazine and Rae Gilson, a life long art aficionado and event planner extraordinaire.
There is a wonderful garden market on the green in the center of Spencertown, an out of the way, exceptionally picturesque little burg in Columbia County.
