We’ll have treats and refreshments all weekend.
Those that have read my newsletters for the past 20 years or so will know that I have been beating the “Shop Local” drum for a long, long time. Fortunately more people than ever before are getting the message. Shopping can be much more than a click of the mouse or a trip to a mega-store. It can be entertaining too! Local store owners pride themselves with unique offerings and one of a kind experiences.
In 12 days Shopping Small will be celebrated with the American Express Shop Small Saturday. It’s a benefit to AMEX cardholders who can register for a 25.00 credit for shopping local businesses – but it’s also a great reminder to everyone that your local businesses are here for you. Please take time from your busy holiday shopping to visit some of the wonderful locally owned businesses. Three of our favorites that come to mind are Toys to Treasure , The Rug Gallery and Stephen Libs Chocolates . Great small businesses that make shopping fun and help our local economy. There are thousands of us that love our customers and our community. Stop in and see what we have to offer.

We have a wonderful new line up for the fall fashion season. Francia has selected a large range of new jewelry lines to add to our impressive collections.
One of Francia’s favorites in Uno de 50. (One of 50). This inspiring jewelry line was founded by Concha Diaz del Rio and a group of designers in Madrid, Spain. The initial idea was to produce only 50 of each design so the owner could possess a very unique work of jewelry art. Due to the tremendous popularity of the jewelry the number was expanded, although the design studio still makes limited edition pieces.
The pieces are still designed and produced at their Madrid studio using a metal alloy layered with silver. The unique textures and shapes are a hallmark of Uno de 50′s urban style.
The pieces are often combined with other materials such as glass, resin and leather to add an additional textural layer.
Stop in and let Francia show you some of the these stunning unique designs.
Exclusively in our area by Uno de 50.
Eric Gourieux is a physician, father of four and wood turner living in Newburgh, Indiana. Creating wood turnings for over 10 years, Eric has progressed from crafting pens to hollow form vessels. His pieces are rough turned from a solid piece of wood that are usually turned from wet, or green, wood. The piece is then sealed or processed in such a way as to minimize warping or splitting. After several months, or sometimes up to a year, the rough turned piece is re-mounted on the lathe and turned to it’s final shape. Each work is then hand finished with a multi-step process that enhances the natural beauty of the wood.
This hollow form vessel is hand turned from a solid piece of ambrosia maple. Ambrosia Maple is technically not a specific species of Maple, but rather a general description of any type of Maple that has been infested by ambrosia beetles. The beetles bore into the tree, and with it bring fungus that discolors the wood. With hand turned ambrosia finial and walnut collar.
This spectacular hollow form bowl is hand turned using a select piece of Cherry. The natural crack contains bark inclusions. This type of turning is exceedingly difficult to create and the unique character of the wood makes this an exceptional work of art. Finished with antique oil, buffed and polished.
Beautifully crafted, this walnut bowl is hand turned from a solid block of walnut wood. The bowl is shaped in such a way to allow the natural bark to be retained. The turning is finished with antique oil, buffed and polished.
Come in and see these execptional works of art.
And these, like your true love, are forever.
