October 2008 Newsletter

New Products
Hello everyone! Its our first day of snow up here in Vermont and we're back in state for our fall foliage and Christmas gift shows with all sorts of new products. Our beadkits are a fun gift idea. A sample pic of our bead kitsEach kit contains one of our gorgeous fused dichroic pendants, an assortment of crystal, sterling and seed beads and all the stringing supplies to make a beautiful and unique necklace. Directions are included making this an easy product for young and old alike!

We also have new night lights! These night lights are unique and colorful and we have a bunch of different colors to choose from. Each one is a burst of bright funky colors and really shines once you plug them in and switch them on. We hand make this unique glass in our kiln and no two night lights are quite the same. With lots of different designs, they will brighten up the decor of any home. And as always, keep an eye on our website and our etsy store for new products!

Upcoming Events
Coming up October 24th through the 26th is our fall Essex Jct, Vermont Craftworkers show. Lots of great vendors, (more than 300!) in and outdoors.

November 20th through the 23rd is the 56th Annual Vermont Handcrafters Holiday Show at the Sheraton Conference Center in South Burlington, Vermont. If you are in the area this is a show you don't want to miss! With a selection of over 250 contemporary Vermont artisans, and two floors packed with vendors it will be a great place to get your handcrafted holiday gifts.

Website Redesign
We are also in the process of re-doing our Not only are we re-doing the look but we we'll also be adding some fun new stuff. Over the last couple years we have an increasing range of home decor products and with our new web store we will add sections for these products while simplfying our current jewelry categories for easier browsing. And our most exciting new feature will be the addition of tutorials to the site! Hopefully this will give crafters and shoppers alike a look into how we make our products! So keep an eye out web store re-design!
