Nothing Says Spring Like a Teapot by Melissa Garcia Parry

Winter passed in a blink of an eye and long before spring officially arrived we were out of hibernation. Eugene Saturday Market is well underway and we've already got four markets under our belts. We've moved booth locations and are now at booth 133. It's still on the west block but we back onto the fountain and can be seen from Oak Street. It feels sunnier and busier and we've had a few people ask if we're new so wondering if we've been a bit off the beaten path for the last six years?

Happy Teapot with Calendula

Another sign of spring is Ceramic Showcase in Portland, which is just days away (gulp.) This Friday, April 29 is opening day and we will be there in booth 36 through Sunday. We have some new pieces that we're particularly excited about, including our favorite teapot in the photo above. If we don't sell him he'll just have to come back home. Oh well.

This springy weather has got us so motivated that we will be covering both Portland and Eugene this Saturday, April 30. If anyone in the Willamatte Valley suddenly needs a mug they should be able to find one of us if they get on the I-5 and head north or south.
