Realms over the holidays

November 26, 2014

If you’re in town and want to see what Realms is up to, here’s where we’ll be.

The Festival of Lights is a really special event; it’s a show put on each year by Amy Gould in her stunningly decorated Victorian home across from the Armory (510 North State Street). Some of my favorite artists will be there selling their work. I will be bringing lotions, gift baskets, barrettes made from repurposed vintage jewelry and glass assemblages. The dates are Friday evening, December 5 from 5-9 PM and Saturday, December 6th from 11 AM-5 PM. This is by invitation only, so this invite is your entry in.

11th Annual Festival of Lights

Going on right now is the Allied Arts Festival. This year it’s in a great location — across from the entrance to the mall on Bakerview, in the shopping center with the new Burlington outlet (4145 Meridian). It’s a nice building with lots of windows and natural light. There are several wings with small groupings of artists that make the whole experience more intimate.

I’m delighted to roll out gift baskets for the holidays¬† — and beyond. These are filled with an 8 oz. Satin & Silk Lotion, an 8 oz. Shower Gel, moisturizing shea butter soap and a 2 oz. mini lotion, all in your favorite scent.
