Friday night was the opening for the big Holiday Sale at the BCC from 6 to 9 PM. I got there a little after six and it was already mobbed and stayed so all through the evening. We had lovely live music, wine and plenty of goodies. It was a great night.
I love the way they had things displayed, often in color families. They had painted some of the walls in bright colors which enhanced the wares. That's my "Alley View " on the wall.
This corner had some stunning green glass and my "Verdant" on the wall.
These little garden quilts of mine came out very blurry. When I go back over I'll try to get a better shot.
I fell in love with these darling little sweater sets. Alas, no one to buy them for.
I volunteered from 2 to 6 on Saturday and while we were not as mobbed as on Friday night, it was steady all day with a lot of sales. They alway have fabulous jewelry, mostly silver and stones and some beautiful beaded Kumihimo necklaces made by my friend Barbara.
The scarf selection was amazing and I bought two: a scrumptious hand painted silk and a gorgeous silk Itajime Shibori. I also bought a great present for my son, but I can't say what in case he reads this blog.
If you live anywhere near Brookfield, CT, please stop buy. Everything is hand made in the USA and a lot of it from Connecticut. You will be sure to find some great holiday gifts or something for yourself. I did both! The sale runs through January 6 and if you go to this post, you will find the postcard that lists all the times and dates.
