THE OTHER BUSINESS VENUES I'VE BEEN INVOLVED IN OVER THE PAST 18 YEARS REMAIN LISTED ON THIS SITE, AS A COURTESY TO THE WONDERFUL SHOP OWNERS I'VE BEEN PRIVILEGED TO HAVE REPRESENT MY PRODUCTS. UNFORTUNATELY, I'VE HAD TO SCALE BACK MY PRODUCTION & WILL ONLY SELL MY WARES THROUGH THIS WEB SITE, MY ETSY ACCOUNT & THE FRANCISCAN ARTS FESTIVAL, BUT, YOU SHOULD STILL MAKE AN EFFORT TO VISIT ANY OF THESE OTHER FINE SHOPS.

Combined booths at local Las Cruces Farmer's & Crafts Market with Sharon Gaskill, a very talented designer of handcrafted greeting cards............
Just a "shout out" to a wonderful, on line Gift Shop that promoted many of my items for several years, but, sadly I've had to scale back & no longer sell to any outside retail outlets. BUT, Carole, the owner is great to work with & carries some really unique & well crafted products. You need to check her web site out.
The Village Gallery in The Village of Oak Creek, just a few miles SW of Sedona, AZ. A wonderful little co-op of some very talented artists that I was fortunate enough to be active in for a couple of years. A must stop if you're in the area.
