Keuka Arts Festival This Weekend!

Red Tree Studio - Best in Jewelry, Athens ArtsFest 2014

Red Tree StudioBest in Jewelry, Athens ArtsFest 2014

I have a great fondness for the Keuka Lake area. After my dad retired at age 55, he owned a 125 acre tree farm for a bunch of years. I loved the drive down there and never missed a chance to hit up The Windmill Farm & Craft Market and Oak Hill Bulk Foods.

Poor Penn Yan has been through a lot lately with the recent flooding. I can hardly bear to look at the photos. There’s a bar/restaurant we used to have lunch at sometimes. I remember my sister and I taking our visiting cousin there once. Actually my most vivid memory of that trip is Scott making me laugh so hard, I squirted milk out my nose. (Sorry for the visual.) It was not in the restaurant, thank goodness, but in the car. My mom’s car. I remember turning on the windshield wipers, pretending they were on the inside, erasing all evidence, making us laugh harder.

Um, where was I? Oh! The many Rochester Artisans you’ll get to visit with at this year’s Keuka Arts Festival. Here they are!

I was lucky enough to be in Linda’s studio recently and she showed me some Keuka Lake pieces she was working on, specifically for this show. I’m not finding any photos of them so I’m sharing this custom dog panel because I love it.

Buying Local Art Thursday – Sunday, Dec 5 – 8

Square Logo Proud Member

I remember where I was the first time a customer asked me, “Are you local? I’m only buying locally made gifts this year.” This was in 2009, well before these words entered our vocabulary: Buy Local, Eat Local, locavores, Shop Small, Small Business Saturday. That woman opened my mind and I’ve been trying to live that way ever since. I’m not perfect but I try. And I know a lot of you do too.

Our community of artists, Rochester Artisans, has grown from 7 members in 2009, to 692 as of today. And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for liking and buying what is our passion to make.

Here’s where you can find some of our members in the days to come of next weekend. There are 17 events listed here so I’m declaring this the High Weekend of Holiday Shopping Local!

Have fun and we thank you!

Artful Holidays – Last Day Tomorrow!

Artful Holidays

Just this week I turned over a new leaf, by reader request, to post events 2 weeks in advance. Today, I turned that leaf back over – because I realized this 8-day show ends tomorrow! The Artful Holidays Facebook Page has great photos of what you’ll see there. It’s truly a well-curated show, filled with beautiful items. Mt Morris is about an hour’s drive from my house in Fairport – not bad at all. I hope you get a chance to go!

Search Engine Optimization

BS Pottery will be at this weekend's Hilton Apple Fest.

BS Pottery will be at this weekend’s Hilton Apple Fest.

Let me guess. You’ve heard the term SEO until you’re blue in the face. Even I, who lives on the Internet, found it overwhelming. Then I took a class on social media at Rochester Brainery, where it was explained in my language. Now I focus on just word, relevance.

Yesterday’s post on Handmadeology explains it the same way it was explained to me in that class. Etsy seller Yvette Perri uses examples to make her SEO explanation even more clear.

I can’t say enough good things about Handmadeology. They offer paid services and a lot of information for free. I’ve taken a few of their webinars. Lots of it is geared towards Etsy sellers but that same knowledge can be applied to all sorts of online shops and it reaches far beyond online selling. The site offers a ton of guest posts written by people who have the experience to back-up their guidance.

I love small business success stories!
