My Day at Market Square

It is just pouring rain here in Wilmington DE. this morning, discount and it cold, prostate but I am cozy and warm by the fire with my laptop and a cup of coffee, physician and I just couldn’t wait to tell you about my day yesterday. It was the Market Square show in King of Prussia, PA. This show is not open to the public, but for business owners only. This was my first time going to the show and I was really looking forward to it, plus, as I mentioned yesterday, I was meeting a customer of mine for the first time. She and her daughter came all the way from Washington state. She was so sweet, and we felt so comfortable together. Like old friends. After our visit, it was time to get back to the show. We said our good byes, and went our seperate ways. The show was fabulous. Huge, and pretty overwhelming for a first timer like me. So many things I wanted to buy for my NEW store, American Artisans.
In the photo below, is Kate Adams, a very sweet lady that makes the most wonderful miniature quilts. Such tiny pieces sewn by hand and machine. Her quilts are saught after by collectors. All made from 18th and 19th century fabrics. The are very special! I wasn’t able to buy one this time, but I hope to in the near future.

Jacquelyn Trone, a wonderful artist, whose paintings have a strong following by collectors also. Her work has been in the Museum of Folk Art in New York, and featured in Early American Life’s Directory of American Artists for over 20 years. I purchased 2 of her prints, and they will be in my new store very soon. You will love them!

I also bought a couple of pictures by Wendy Schultz Wubbels, who does lovely Silhouettes and Scherenschnitte, and a few pieces of S J Redware Pottery. This was a new experience for me, and so much fun. Hope you enjoyed hearing about it. Take care. Ooops! How could I forget artist Sharon Mason.

For the longest time I have been trying to find someone that reproduces chaulkware, other than Santas. I found someone!! This wonderful artist was commissioned by the Clinton Whitehouse, to make a Christmas ornament for the White House Christmas tree. Remember I wrote about chaulkware a while ago, and showed you some photos of some antique chaulkware? I am so excited about her pieces. Hopefully, soon, I will have some to show you in my new store, “American Artisans”. So that’s it, until tomorrow.
Happy day!
