I'm very pleased to be participating in the second definitely.not.the.mall artisan show at the Old Town Hall in Waterford (Ontario). The show will be held November 6&7th and features 20+ local artists and includes magnificent paintings, pottery, jewellery, and other amazing unique works.

I'm also thrilled that I was the featured artisan in an article written by Barbara Simpson for the Simcoe Reformer on Wednesday October 20. I hope this link works:

I'm still adjusting to my new life in my small town, and I can honestly say I've never been happier. reFurbished is growing slowly and steadily, and my plan is to launch a media blitz as soon as possible to capitalize on the Christmas season.

Last weekend my talented photographer friend Kat Barry (KitKat Photos) came to shoot my fall and winter collection for this year. The shoot included a series of pink bags that I designed for "Living Pink Through Fashion", a fundraiser for breast cancer in which I modeled and showed a few of my bags. The lovely Andrena Parris models my Valentine bag below:
So, BUSY is the word. Tomorrow I have to update my Etsy store and then ramp up production once again for November 6&7!
