After coordinating an Artist’s Tree every year during the last fifteen years for the Talbot Hospice Festival of Trees, artist Diane DuBois Mullaly thought this autumn felt empty without that project. To fill the void, Mullaly asked Beth Hickman, the owner of A Happy Place boutique, if she would be interested in selling artisan made ornaments to benefit Talbot Hospice.
Beth said a resounding yes, and a new project was born! Beginning First Friday November 6, about fifty handmade ornaments will fill a special tree at the boutique. Each has been created upon a base of an upcycled tin can lid, which was specially removed with a can opener that leaves a clean-cut rim and becomes a natural frame within which to create. Made from a wide variety of materials and mediums, each ornament holds its own special charm.
The participating artists are Doris Gerlach, Mullaly, Kate Quinn, Laura Rankin, Maggii Sarfaty, Sharon Stockley, Heidi Wetzel, and Sarah Williamson. Prices range in the $10-$20 range. 100% of all cash proceeds and 95% of credit card sales will be donated to Talbot Hospice.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see the tree and purchase ornaments. There’s nothing like an early kickoff to your holiday shopping, especially for a great cause!
A Happy Place is at 12 N Washington St. in Easton, and it is open Tuesday through Friday, 1 to 6, Saturday 10-6, and Sunday 12-5 p.m. For more information, call 410-200-3867, email email@example.com or find the boutique on Facebook.
