So here's me grinning like an idiot with some of my plushies on display. (Bucky found a good home that night! Eeee!!! Thanks Kristin's mom and Kristin!)
Here's the display tree where my birdies are in good company showing off their cheery holiday goodness.
And the showcase wall where Quigley stands tall. *sniff* I'm such a proud mama.
There were so many goodies there. I really wanted like, pretty much one of everything. (Ugh - just realized I forgot to get any shots of the lower level.) But I got a gift for my sister (shhhhh!) and some local handmade soap and Jon and I bought a gift for his mom and a beautiful handblown glass ornament for our tree. Actually, I think I might display it year round in a window or something - it's really pretty.
And the food was good too. They had deserts from a couple different local bakers. Actually really local. We found out one was right around the corner from us, located out of Romeo. And the other, Holy Cannoli, is actually run by the daughter of the owner of a local antique shop we go to. Small world. :)
So overall, it was a great night. I have a feeling though, that those who came opening night were mostly either the artists, regular members of the gallery, or friends/family. So the real shopping probably started yesterday morning (when admission was free and the sale was going on). So I'll have to pop back in there next week and see if they need any restocking of Pooknflip goods. (I hope I hope I hope they do!) Which means I need to get busy.
Oh! And it's a happy Sunday (b/c Sunday's are usually not my favorite) because my niece and her hubby are coming over for dinner. I'm cooking meatloaf, asparagus, sweet potatoes and smashed redskin potatoes. Mmmmmm. And they're bringing dessert! I'll try to remember to take some pics...
