Once again, I have been neglecting the world of wordpress… I am guilty. But, with good reason! I promise! Besides all of my wedding planning craziness , I have also been trying to create more and get my pottery out there. I do have my Etsy shop, Oak Leaf Crafts, but I also wanted to try to get my work in a real shop. Guess what?? I did!!
Keepin’ It Local is a fun shop in Morganza in Southern Maryland. I grew up in the area and passed the building that houses the local shop often. However, it was not always a local goods and art shop. The building was built in 1900 and was used as the local general store, bar, and post office all at the same time. I personally remember it as an old abandoned building. I was so thrilled to see that someone purchased the old post office and made it into a local goods shop, keeping the history alive. After visiting the shop and seeing that other local artists had their work in the shop, I had to try. And they accepted! Now some of my pottery is in the shop! There are so many interesting things there and I highly recommend visiting if you are in the area!!
I have also made a page for Oak Leaf Crafts on Facebook (with the help from the fiance of course). I am trying!!! One day maybe I will be able to make even more work… who knows!
