I was out getting some supplies with my mom and daughter and we stopped for lunch in Castlegar, BC. We went browsing through some gift shops and found an adorable little shop called Dragonflies & Fairy Dust. I was looking around and found some amazing frames to go with my original paintings and then I saw them... you can imagine my delight when I found my Dreamscape Calendars on display. I actually gasped!
You see, most of my partners, galleries and stores are in the USA and Europe. I actually don't get to spot my artwork and products just randomly in stores very often. I was so excited that I took all of my calendars out of the lovely basket she had them on display in, and went up to the shop owner and introduced myself. I was smiling from ear to ear!
She was very happy to have the artist there and had no idea that my studio was just a short drive down the highway. We did a little autograph session and I personally signed all of the calendars for her. It was so fun!
If you are in the area of Castlegar, please stop by Dragonflies & Fairy Dust and check out her amazing store. The calendars are sold out now but my 2017 calendars will be hitting the store shelves very soon so please ask her about them. What a wonderful day a regular supply run turned out to be!
