Dear Santa,

Dear Santa,
please bring me a 1961 falcon wagon, the tree would be nice too.
I've been good, sort of.

Okay, picture this, shiny black paint, the side panel striped just like my etsy banner, pink, orange, gold with "Miss Courageous" in bright yellow... dark tinted rear windows, and the back full of my market stuff that will never have to be completely unloaded. It's genius.

Groovy Gift Ideas

I can't tell you how many times people have asked if they can buy my record bowl I used as display at the market. So I decided I should make some to sell. But I couldn't bring myself to do the traditional melted wavy bowls that you heat in the oven. I didn't want to hear people say "I can do that." I want to hear people say "How did you do that?" Soooo.... I present to you, a smooth, hand made bowl, labels and hole sealed, ready for entertaining!

($20.00 available at the Capital City Public Market and other craft shows this season)

And because entertaining isn't complete without beverages, I have cut the label portion out of the records, backed them with reclaimed cork, and sealed them with shiny resin for fun coasters. Choose your favorites for a set to make a wonderful personal gift!

($6.00 each or 4 / $20.00 available at my booth at the Capital City Public Market and other craft shows this season)
