It's that time of year again. Next Friday, Nov. 7th is the start of the Fall Cottage Life Show at the International Centre on Airport Road. As always, we are looking forward to seeing both our regular customers and meeting new ones. Both Bill and I will be in the booth all three days. We will be introducing the stunning wall plaques by Dawn Detarando and Brian McArthur to the Cottage Life crowd. (You can go to July 28/08 to check out a couple of tiles). We are bringing the work of Barb Howe, Wayne Cardinalli, Lou Hanson, Dotti Potts, Eric Ciup, canoes by Daniel Maxwell (our top seller at the last two shows) plus a selection of milk bag pitchers and berry bowls. We will also have pottery and wooden marquetry Christmas decorations and, as always, the beautiful photographic cards by Geof Burbidge that represent cottage country so well.
Come by and say "Hi". Our booth number is TP11. The show hours are:

Friday, Nov. 7th......12 noon till 9pm
Saturday, Nov. 8th......10am till 6pm
Sunday, Nov. 9th........10am till 5pm

Delivery by Melanie Collum

We've just received an order in by Melanie. We have lots of oval slab plates in three sizes with her northern landscapes plus a selection with her inukshuk motif. Her small dishes can be used for olive oil/balsamic vinegar dipping sauce or for soap. We will be showing her work at the Cottage Life Show in November.
