Market Square Day 2009

June 15, 2009

Collected Studio set up shop in downtown Portsmouth for Market Square Day 2009 and what a fun time we had! The weather was a perfect 76 degrees and sunny with a crowd of 60,000 plus people in attendance. Annie and I arrived around 6AM to get things set up and had a steady stream of people filter through from 9 to 4pm. We met lots of terrific people who were very excited and supportive of our artwork. At one point we even had a flock of sorority girls singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” in our booth… don’t ask me how that happened… so all in all it was an interesting and fun filled day. Here are some pics!

Welcome to our shop!

Wild Animals Postcard Table

June 11, 2009

Today I finished work on an occasional table that I stained in deep walnut, and made a collage top using postcards of wild animals. I found the set of postcards at a shop in Concord, MA a year ago and probably had no idea at the time I’d be using them for this. The cards are made by Cavallini & Co. of San Francisco and feature several animals from around the world.

I’m pleased how this table turned out, and will bring it along to our booth at Market Square Day on Saturday. Maybe someone will have just the right spot for it in their home.

I’m excited to announce that Collected Studio will be taking part in Market Square Day in Portsmouth, NH next Saturday, June 13th. Market Square Day is a festival which includes local foods, music, a 10K road race and booths featuring local merchants and artists.

Annie and I have been working hard coming up with all sorts of new items such as the Yankees Baseball Card Toilet Seat featured on my previous post, baseball card collage tables, mirrors, and one-of-a-kind Father’s Day cards! Our booth will be located near G. Willikers across from the corner of Ladd Street and Market Street. Drop by and say hello!
