After Spring Daze, I contemplated some retail opportunities that came my way. I have been in galleries in the past, and was looking for a new outlet. My bookmarks made out of hardcover book spines are now found in All Booked Up, a fantastic used book store on Salem Street in downtown Apex. Stop in for a cool and bookish experience. They have a fantastic selection. Heading in to Raleigh, I have a small selection of goods available at NOFO at the Pig. This is located at Five Points on Fairview Ave. The downstairs cafe door is right next to Lilly's pizza (pretty good gluten free crust there!)This is a pretty eclectic collection of handmade, and unusual manufactured goods; much of it made in NC! I haven't eaten in the cafe, but my allergies.... The third but not least "outlet" for Studio 119 is the Carolina Artists Colony, in Sanford NC; just a short drive down US 1. This is an amazing collection of handcrafted art! Rooms and rooms full! Now that my June has simmered down to a dull roar, I need to get down there and fully check out the offering there :) Looking forward to replenishing my inventory and pondering the fall coming up; and looking for a few new shows. Back to work!
