For the Love of Art.

One of the things I love about being a seller of fine craft is the association with and exposure to other artists and their magnificent creations.  I truly enjoy seeing the work people create --  beautiful vessels containing their love, passion, energy, time and resources.  It never fails to humble me to walk the aisles of a really good show.

I think that's because no one 
(in their right mind) 
goes into art or craft to get rich.

People are much more likely to end up there because it is where their heart has taken them (which shows in their work).  And that's worth much more than money, really.  

And to those who understand the value of handmade and feel its pull, but approach it as appeciator rather than creator, we need you and we thank you.  From the bottom of our hearts.
