More New Sayings for Fall 2009

We are introducing new sayings every few weeks now. It is kind of exciting, as we interact with our customers more and more we fine tune our 2010 line. At the retail shows, we learn what people like and why.

At the shop we figure out the best ways to make the pieces.
Currently we are working on a new line of magnets and pins. The magnets are almost ready so we are trying to decide how to display them. There are a couple of neighborhood kids who like to come in after school. Yesterday I put them to work gluing the magnets onto the backs of the ceramic pieces. It was a learning experience for all, a little messy and very very fun.

The pins are really fun. Today everyone wore one of them so we could see how they showed up on people’s clothes. I’ll take some pictures next week.
Here are the 3 newest sayings:

The best part of the winter in Vermont

We are in the deepest of the winter up here in the north. It is the time of year when the quiet and cold drives one inside to read and contemplate and work on the types of projects you would never want to sit still long enough for in the summer. It is a very productive time if you can give yourself up to it.

At the pottery we are all wearing the mismatched socks from the Vermont Socklady we got at Christmas time. Check out her website for some really fun socks solmate socks

We are working on all kinds of winter projects. From making a new batch of our special towel aprons, to figuring out new ways to use the waste heat from our kilns. toewl aprons You can see the heat exchange system in this picture behind the rack of towels and aprons we are drying in the kiln room.

Hopefully this winter, we will develop a method for preheating the wash water for our towels, and glaze buckets and such.

It’s a good time to think about nice hot water.


The holidays are here. We have spent wonderful time with family on Thanksgiving. Our holiday was a milestone for our family, a wonderful young baby and what used to be the younger generation is now the eldest generation. But we are together and that is the watchword.

We have traveled to 4 states selling plaques, meeting people and trying out our new sayings. It was delightful to relish in the new energy inspired by the “Yes We Can” and “Rosa Parks” plaques.

But overall we found the same sincere folks looking for ways to say “I love you” to their families and friends in a frugal, american made, humorous personal way.

The “Buy 3, pick a 4th plaque, and get it FREE” deal is most appreciated this year. We are especially pleased to be able to offer “FREE SHIPPING” for orders of $40.00 or more. Please note the FREE SHIPPING is USPS standard so expect at least a week for delivery.

Enjoy our website and all the variety, and as always we LOVE your feedback!

Warm Wishes from Vermont.
