Please join us this weekend as we feature items to dress your holiday table! Start your gift shopping, too!  We have so many new things to share with you.
We will be featuring work by these artists, among others.

See you this weekend!
Raluca and Mark Tudose
The Spoonman of Transylvania and his wife. There is a spoon with a story for everyone on your list. These also make perfect hostess gifts!
Andrei Pandea We noticed these dear little heads in an upstairs window from the street in Sibiu. Once upstairs, we discovered this young artist and his remarkable story of The Innocents' Choir, his project to help raise funds to aid Romanian children with special needs by crafting and exhibiting 5000 miniature ceramic busts . We are fortunate to have 12 similar pieces for sale this weekend.  
Pall Ida 
was a weaver from the village of Mureni, near Sighisoara, Transylvania. She passed away 2 years ago at the age of 90. We met her daughter (pictured here) , who presented us with stacks of crisply pressed cloth scented with lavender.  We bought them all.
Nistor Ioan 
Climbing the steps into the ancient Leather Workers' Guild Tower in Sighisoara, we were transported back in time... Here we met Nistor at his workbench fashioning a horse's harness, perhaps to grace one of the many horses we saw pulling wagons and plows. We don't have harnesses for you (but ask about our hand-woven horsehair hatbands from Peru!), but did get an assortment of handsome leather bracelets.
Rose Ann Hall Designs 
We are pleased to introduce hand-etched glassware and hand-dipped and carved cathedral candles from
this artisan group based in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.  One fourth of the work force is physically disabled.  Learn more about them by watching this video.
