The Quiet Woods had a fun roadtrip to Northampton MA to meet Patty Arbour from The Artisan Gallery.
Ma, Jonah and I piled into the Subaru with a few trays of jewelry and high hopes. Then we hit traffic...
Before long we arrived on Main Street, sunny, warm and teeming with people. Finding the gallery was easy and walking in was glorious. What an incredible shop full of really exquisite pottery, clothing, jewelry and accessories. I could have set up a tent and lived in there! Meeting Patty in the back office was challenging with Jonah behaving like a 2 year old....clinging to my hip..not letting me move my left arm..
She was as delightful as her shop. Vivacious and lovely. She perused our samples for a while, saying nothing. When she did finally speak she said that she had traveled the country buying jewelry and she hadn't seen anything out there quite like our pieces. It was truly the highest compliment I've ever received.
She then asked if she could take everything we brought - all 32 pieces.
Thank you, Patty!
