It has been a very busy week! We have kept all of our candles burning at both ends to get some exciting new lamps ready for the 11th Annual Arts & Crafts Show & Sale this weekend at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds in the Progress Center building.
We completed many lamp shades and bases just in time for the show. In the photo above, Bill is hand waxing the patinated bronze lamp parts. In the photo below, Irwin is doing the final assembly and electrical wiring on the bases.
We have packed up almost everything in our showroom for this two day event. Bill carefully packed many heavy boxes of pottery to take for our booth.
Once again, we have constructed the "Lamp Cave" to showcase our reproduction Tiffany lamps.
St. Paul artist Nick McArdell arrives with several new pieces of his Turner & Scratch hand made pottery. Nick will once again be demonstrating his clay decoration techniques at our booth.
It seems like Bill just got the boxes of pottery packed up and he had to unpack everything again (Irwin really is helping, but somebody had to shoot the photo!).
After a long day, the booth is almost picture perfect. We will arrive bright and early to do the final tweaking before the show opens at 9am tomorrow!
