Heading into the holiday season, I want to tell you that the store is busting at the seams. I have so much new stuff and honestly nowhere to put it. Can’t even open my doors for a few weeks until … Continue reading

When do the dog days officially start anyway? This is my dog, Kermit, an old rescue chihuahua. Leslie doesn’t think it shows in his greatest light but it was the only picture I had on hand. Our guess is that … Continue reading

I have been putting material up for weeks and I have barely made a dent in the pile, not even close to doing objects yet. Eventually you will be able to see most of what I have in the gallery on line. Please look at the work that I have listed.
I wanted to let you know that I will be taking my wares out on the road soon. I have a show in the bay area at San Mateo, the venerable Hillsborough Antique Show, now in it’s five hundredth year and counting. Show starts on April 25, 2014 Find out more here. Del Mar, the Calendar Antique Show, promoted by the best promoter in the trade, Michael Grimes, starts the following week on the second of May. If there was ever a P.T. Barnum of the craft it is Michael, hopefully well rested from his physical travails, the man gets the bodies into the hall.
Finally, the Calm Show at Earl Warren fairgrounds in Santa Barbara, always a fun one, this time smacked right dab into my twentieth anniversary. This show takes place starting on the 16th of May. Always a great place to visit, a nice warm decorative show in the city that we all would reside in if we had the money.
Come by and visit me, kick the tires, laugh at my bad jokes, say hello.
