Sassy Glass Studio @ Home Show- Jacksonville, FL

Recently, I had the pleasure of conducting my first Sassy Glass Studio @ Home Show for sisters (and dear friends) Denise Shinn and Carol LeTard in Jacksonville, Florida. Denise rounded up over a half dozen of her and Carol's friends for a few hours on a Friday night to enjoy some wine and delicious food while perusing my collection of one-of-a-kind fused glass art. The show was a great success and it was so much fun answering questions and describing my work. The setting was much more intimate than an art show and way more relaxing. I have posted a few photographs from the show. I would especially like to thank my travel buddy, Susan, for giving up one night of our annual Ladies Beach Trip to help me set-up and breakdown for the show.

From the top: Ladies gathered round chatting it up, Carol (left) and Denise (right) preparing the food and drink, Lucky dog, the entry way, Allan's sign came along too, Susan, display including gorgeous new art panel, more display featuring the "Ocean Wave" platter

Now you are intrigued and want to know what exactly is a Sassy Glass Studio @ Home Show anyway? Sassy Glass Studio @ Home Shows are a great way to get some friends together for a few hours, catch up on gossip, learn about fused glass art and find some fabulously unique gifts, jewelry and home accents.

Sounds great, but you want to know how it works, right? Space permitting, I bring my entire current inventory, as well as tables and covers, and set it up in your home similarly to how I do at an art show. Set-up and breakdown each take about one hour and the Show need only take up to two hours, but can last as long as you and friends decide. I will also assist you with the creation of e-mailable invitations (or regular mail invitations if you so desire).

So, what's in it for me you're wondering? Hanging out with your friends for an evening is fun, but the best part of hosting a Sassy Glass Studio @ Home Show has to be the 10% discount! Your reward for hosting a show is a discount off your purchases- current inventory or custom created pieces- equal to ten percent of sales made at the Show. Example: Your friends spend a total of $1000, you get a $100 discount. How awesome is that? All you have to do is invite your friends (and serve some drinks and appetizers if you wish) and I do the rest.

What are you waiting for? Contact me today to arrange for your own Sassy Glass Studio @ Home Show.

Please note: Although I would prefer to do Home Shows within 100 miles of Knoxville, Tennessee, I will make exceptions, so don't hesitate to ask if you are located outside of East Tennessee. My husband, Allan and I love to travel, and as photographers ( we are always looking for fresh locations to shoot.
