Getting Ready for the Craft Shows

Earlier posts have mentioned the Second Saturday Artisan & Vendor Shows at Courtyard Square in Salem (scroll down for more information)

Themes: February Valentine’s Day, March St. Patrick’s Day, April Easter. If we continue there will be Mother’s Day in May, Father’s Day in June and I also heard something about a car event coming up.

For February

  • For sale: Valentine Trees, plates, figurines, heart boxes, and much more.
    Prices vary.
  • Valentine Craft Kits: Scottie Dog, Cute Kitty, or Comic Mouse; Small Heart Box or Picture Frame; Valentine Ornament in bisque ready-to-paint; Acrylic Paints & Paint Brushes, Paint Pallet, Stir Stick, & Water Bowl; Coupons: Kids Krafts & Free Adult Lesson; Valentine Candy.
    These kits are in baskets and sell for $15 each or two for $25. Great gifts for the kids.
  • Brown Sugar Bears: actually, we made them as conversation hearts and a few bears. These are small pieces of bisque colored with underglazes that you soak in water, then put in brown sugar and other food products to keep them from drying out.
    This is a free gift for everyone while supplies last.


  • Leprechaun Boot Bank, Leprechaun decanter, beer mugs, shamrock boxes, and more.
  • Shamrock Craft Kits: ornaments, shamrock box, and figurine. Painting supplies are the same.
  • Brown Sugar Bears will be available again in the shape of shamrocks.


Watch for it! We have lots of Easter items including baskets, eggs, figurines, and “chocolate” bunnies!
