 Paul May, aka Not Good Wood is a local artist who works in many mediums.  For this show, he made five new sculptures, which he hand carved from polar, pine or purple heart woods, stained and painted all the faces and details, sewed all the clothes by hand, and built each one a little cubicle.  Paul also makes carved puppets and marionettes, and does illustration and painting.  For more information, check out his facebook fan page at 

Thank you for choosing us a s Best Local Retailer!!

We had a blast at the SBB (Small Business Beanstalk) Awards Gala. We drank some beers and had fun chatting with friends.  Everyone was dressed to impress and ready to party.  We were most excited about winning an award for BEST LOCAL RETAILER!!!! We were up against some stiff competition including Wholly Craft!, Tigertree, and Homage Tees.   We were pleasantly surprised when our name was called. Mike did a fake trip as he walked up the stairs to receive the award..not sure if everyone knew he was pretending to fall or thought he was really falling.

 So thank you to all of our fans who voted for us!!!  We really are honored to have been chosen as your favorite store.  For the full list of winners, click here.

And thank you to the SBB  for throwing such a wonderful party.
