Welcome to the studio...I'm so blessed to be able to do what I love...working in my studio, creating pretties to share with new and old friends.
It's summer, so I'm on the road a few times a month with just the ONE big event to see me in person locally until September! I'm talking about the annual Studio Garage Sale and Open House! Thursday July 23 (3-7), Friday July 24 (10-6), Saturday July 25 (10-?)
THE once-a-year AT THE STUDIO show...I clear out TONS of studio inventory...oodles of glass charms ($5 each, regularly $12+), bronze and other handmade metals, bracelets, necklaces, studio displays AND vintage and crafting supplies I had hopes of making into jewelry and just need to CLEAR out of the studio to have room to CREATE! I'm also taking custom orders in person (a great perk because I don't take appointments in between shows). AND THEN (smiley face!) I'll have regular studio inventory all set up...just for Brown Dog shoppers. (I even have plans to debut a few new designs, including a brand new style of glass initials and some beaded wrap bracelets!).
Here's the deal-i-o...I don't post the address for my home/studio on-line, you understand, right? The ONLY way to get an invite is by email. I'm happy to add you to studio emails, which only come out for this show and my 5-ish other open houses. Yes, you can bring along a friend (or 5). I just ask that for this show at my home you don't post my address on Facebook, etc.
After 10+ years of Brown Dog Studio, this is the only remaining show that takes place in my studio. The remainder of my open house/trunk shows (Valentine's, Mother's Day, Fall and the 2-part Christmas show) have all been taking place at Simply Bungalow in Lincoln, a super-sweet little vintage and artisan goods shop off of 48th and Normal Blvd. Details for these trunk shows come out via email, but will also be posted on Facebook and the website.
I'm trying to finalize the rest of my calendar...posting as I get acceptances :)
