Welcome to an Artisans Party!


(Unfortunately, Wall Candy has closed, but you can still enjoy what was through this post. One artist, an elderly man who had come to pick up his art work at the shop right before it closed, said that he sure would miss the artisan's party because it was the only socializing he had besides going to the doctor's office.)

On this blog post, I'd like to share with you a wonderful event that I attended last Thursday night, an Artisans Party at Wall Candy in Columbia, Tennessee.  (For more information on Wall Candy, please see my 2/9/13 blog post.)  It's where local artists and craftspeople who have their arts or crafts at the shop can meet and mingle with the public. 

Here, in words and pictures, is what it was like to be there from my perspective:

The owners of Wall Candy Mary Helen Payne and daughter Courtney Payne were there to greet everyone.

                                             There was food and wine galore!

         The Band That Showed Up provided music for everyone's enjoyment.

Sherry M. Scheitel of Stillwaters Studio (stillwatersart.net) was on hand to show off her lovely jewelry and paintings.

Also there, were Greg and Pat Bearden with Greg's black and white photos and decorative door letters.  (Greg38401@gmail.com).

I brought in some new stuff for people to see, including a piece of coal, with a mule on it (which is big in Columbia)  (Check out my previous Mule Day blogs [4/1/12 and 4/6/13].)

If you missed this wonderful event this month, don't despair, for there's an Artisans Party the first Thursday night of every month!  The next one is Thursday, December 5.  Hope to see you there!
