Holiday 2016 Ornaments are ready!

Stringing/embellishing ornaments is a daily activity as I get ready for the Unique Boutique Artisan Fair this weekend (November 12 and 13) at the Easton’s Beach Rotunda in Newport.   Also on my table will be my varied assortment of vintage lace impressed mini bowls, trays, and assorted shapes (including the quahog) I have enjoyed making spoon holders with sunflower leaves from my garden and fern impressed trinket dishes and trays from local ferns.

Next week my wares will be transported to South County Art Association in Kingston for their 46th Annual Holiday Show from November 25 to December 18…. More than 50 member potters and crafts people have their crafts artfully displayed for holiday shopping.

Thanksgiving week will be a busy one as I am hosting my extended family Thanksgiving dinner for the first time ever in Newport! Grateful for the help of family (both daughters!) and delighted to take a turn; therefore, I am not actively taking part in any fairs on Friday and Saturday of that weekend…however, the week ends on Sunday with a table of Fat Robin Pottery at the Hibernian Pop up sale at the Hibernian Hall on Wellington Ave in Newport.   The following week, Friday, December 2, I will have a table at the Newport Auxiliary Fair in the atrium at Newport Hospital; the week ends with a Fat Robin Pottery open house on Sunday….. phew…perhaps then I’ll give my kiln a chance to cool!

Thank you in advance for supporting any local artisan or craftsperson and shopping “small” and local; there are many chances to do so in Newport on Thanksgiving weekend, including the Newport Art Museum ‘s Faculty and Student Arts and Crafts Sale, the Potters of Newport County Sale at the Elks, and the Pop Up Sale at the Hibernian on Sunday. May you have a happy and memorable holiday season! Hopefully  Fat Robin Pottery can help you with any of your holiday gift giving needs! Looking forward to seeing new faces, happy regular customers, and old friends  at my tables this season!
