Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Good Morning!  It is Friday, and on Friday I introduce you to some of the great artist from The Sunday Artisan Market.  We have 70 days to Christmas, these artist offer something very different for you shopping enjoyment.  Everything listed today can not be found at the local mall.  Each handmade and most can be made to order for the special someone on your shopping list.     I would love for you to meet Jean Wolter who makes felted hats and bags designed and adorned using lovely combinations of colors and textures. Most bags are lined. Some matching scarves and hats using ultra soft and warm yarns such as alpaca and silk. Comfortable and luxurious accessories. Some items embellished with beadwork. 

Also I would love for you to meet Mary Coscia who is also a basket weaver.  Her baskets use driftwood, and antlers.  One of the baskets with the antlers, with some handmade goodies would make a lovely gift for the hunter on your shopping list.  Mary makes some wonderful basket that are very different then mine, and her work is just wonderful.

The last artist I would like for you to meet is Christine Robertson, who is a  paper and mixed media artist. My products are unique and whimsical picture frames, greeting cards, gift tags, notebooks and original collages.  Some of her frames have school, or sport theme papers, add a picture of your son or daughter playing a sport, or school picture for a wonderful gift to someone.  We all have those on our list who are hard to buy for and a frame picture is quick and easy.  Christine has an etsy shop and the link to her shop is:
