I promised an announcement, and here it is! My amigurumi cuties are now for sale at a brand new boutique in Sanford! My first shop! Park Avenue Massage & Boutique opened March 1st. They specialize in relaxing & rehabilitative massages…..Swedish, Deep Tissue, Cranial Sacral, Reflexology, Sports and Hydrotherapy, but also opened an adjacent beautiful boutique full of handmade creations from local artists and crafters. You have to check it out. It’s really like a local mini Etsy. When I dropped off my stuff in late February, she had already filled up the shop with jewelry, photography, paintings, bags, soaps, my pigs, bees, and giraffes along with my new greeting cards and more! See pictures of the boutique and “like” their page on Facebook. I’m serious when I tell you that this place is really great and should be your first stop when looking for a special gift for someone.
I really wish this new business success, especially because Joye, the owner, is so kind and generous and is so excited and passionate about supporting and promoting the work of local artists and artisans. Park Avenue Massage & Boutique is also right next to an adorable tea shop, Hart Sisters Tea Room. Make a nice afternoon of it and visit both! Go on a Friday afternoon and then get a drink downtown on First Street and you’ll be amazed how many people are out and about listening to live music and enjoying good food at some wonderful non-chain restaurants. Go, go, go!
I am really excited to have my little creatures sitting on a store shelf smiling at customers, and I’m really, really excited about my new greeting cards. I’ve always been kind of crazy for stationary and greeting cards. I love sending and receiving cards and always fill my cards with LOTS of words. These greeting cards combine my amigurumi creatures, my photographs of them, and my love of paper products and they make me so happy! Here they are!
I’m thinking about doing notecards, too. We’ll see how these 5″ x 7″ greeting cards do. Are there any particular pictures you’ve seen of mine that you think would make a good card? If so, would you leave me a comment? I’m so curious what people like best!
That’s my big news! If you go see Joye at Park Avenue Massage, let her know I sent you! Happy shopping!
