Queen of Everything

Whimsies may not be the queen of everything, but we try. This weekend we are going to our FAVORITE wholesale show. It's called The Buyers Market of American Craft in Philadelphia. On this shopping trip we get to meet artists who just do small-run work. These are the people who you only can find in a small shop, not a big box retailer. (Not to toot our own horn or anything) Beautiful glass, pottery, jewelry, wall art, and weavings just to mention a few of the goodies we get to shop for. We have many artists that have been with us for years but we are always in the market for new ones. There is nothing like seeing new work in person. Catalogs will never do them justice. While we are busy shopping, the store will be closed on Sunday, February 20th. Hope you don't miss us too much but we will make sure you see all the new goodies when you come back in.
Have a great weekend!
