First of all let me say thanks to those out there who have been supporting the cause...you know, buying my stuff for Christmas gifts! BUT not just my stuff...handmade stuff...handmade art and fine craft to be specific. You see I'm a supporter of the "war on the corporate, commercial and big box stores for Christmas"...bet you haven't heard of that war on whatever for Christmas. It seems everybody has some cranky gripe about what is and is not done anymore for this holy, holy consumer holiday...so why not just jump on the bandwagon with my own!! If you can't beat'em join 'em and drive them crazy and make them throw you out...that's my belief.
Just to let you know, there is still time to shop online and get it shipped before Christmas. I will keep shipping until this coming Friday 12/20.
I will also be manning the counter at Boutique 208 this Saturday!...So get off your damn devices and come on out in person and shop in real life...for real handmade stuff...art and fine craft from local Pittsburgh folks,like me...Kirsten Lowe Rebel, Pittsburgh Pottery and many more!!! The Boutique is located smack downtown on 6th street...across from Heinz Hall...right near the restaurant 6 Penn...heck, come out and make a day of it!!!
I also want to make you aware of another wonderful cause...its a kickstarter project that my friends Dan Kuhn and Aasta Deth have ventured into. These guys are opening a large, pottery teaching studio complete with gallery component and all in the hip and happening area of Lawrenceville here in Pittsburgh. The name of it is called Ton Pottery. This is a really great space with "tons" of potential but they need our help getting it off the ground...please click on the link and check it out and GIVE then share it with a friend. Lets help build more small businesses like this one in our communities.
