In addition, at the Customer Appreciation Day, John gave several demonstrations on decorative painting techniques using our new caromal colours products.

3/24/16 – Today is the first day of our Spring Open House. We have spent so much time getting this ready over the Winter. Lots of new changes. The roads are clear and it is warming up. This Open House starts on Thursday and runs thru Saturday. We are closed for Easter, then re-open with regular hours.
1/21/16 – I am getting Facebook posts from people having trouble finding things on the web. My guess is that this is coming from Phone users. So I have modified the menu structure. The product categories are now along the top where the various pages of the website used to be. I basically swapped the menu with the product category. What this did for the handheld devices (phones) was to put the product categories inside the MENU right at the top of the screen. Hopefully this makes it easier to navigate. I would like to know of any difficulties navigating around the site. Please email me and tell me. I want this site to be easy to use. Thank-you.
1/18/16 – We put up a new category of products today, textiles. To start, this is comprised of Family Heirloom Weavers products that we have in the shop. If these are purchased online, they can be immediately shipped out. Much more to put up in this category.
11/22/15 – Black Friday coming up. Please see our sale we are having that day as well as the next BELOW…
11/6/15 – Christmas Open House today and next 2 days. Folkart selling fast. Will try to keep website updated with current inventory levels so please bear with us as try to coordinate this. Thank-you!
10-22-15 – We opened up the Christmas category on the products category menu. So you can now view and sort all of our Christmas products available on the website. As of this point, we have the Arnett’s folk art listed. As the other artists ship our orders, we will post more.
