Happy Holidays Open House

In-person and Virtual

Friday, December 17 to Monday, December 20, 2021

11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

…or let me know if you can’t make it during those hours and we can schedule an appointment.

But you can shop any time online, including starting right now! If I need to ship, I want to make sure it gets to you. And if you’re local, you can stop by during my open house to pick up. In October I held my virtual open house the week after my in-person open house, but that’s getting way too close to Christmas to get things shipped on time, so this one happens before.

Here is your shopping discount:

From now until December 20 use the discount OPENHOUSEHOLIDAY2021 for 25% off your order total.

What’s available in the sale?

Basically everything on my website,! The only thing you miss out on at the live sale is the one-of-a-kind things that aren’t on my website.

As usual, I’ll have a number of one-of-a-kind and new things that won’t be on my website that you’ll miss when you shop online. And of course, you won’t get to be surrounded by housepanthers when you visit! But you’ll still be able to get 25% off your entire order no matter how you shop. If the new items are popular, I’ll get them up on my website

Some of what’s available with in-person shopping:

• Select framed original paintings from $25.00 to $100.00

• Framed art prints and photos $25.00 to $50.00

• Individual cards $1.00 each

• Boxed cards (dozen+) or choose your own dozen $10.00

• Order Custom Pet Memorial Votives and Garden Flags to be done by Christmas (I can’t discount votives that will be shipped because of shipping costs.)

• Commissioned Portrait and Art Certificates (I can provide these as PDF files at any time, but can’t send you a paper certificate to arrive in time after December 16.)

If you attend in person…

Please RSVP if you want to join me so I can plan. I am following current state guidelines for Covid and I’ll have masks and hand sanitizer. My house is small, so let’s play it safe!
