We had a wonderful celebration for our FIRST ANNIVERSARY IN POWELL last week. Beginning with a party Thursday evening, then Serendipity Day on Saturday, we gave away free gifts and coupons, signed people up for door prizes, and had a chance to visit with some of our valued customers and friends.

This special date creates the perfect opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for all the people who have made our first year so successful: a wonderful, talented group of creative and supportive artists; friends and family who have offered inspiration, advice, and confidence; and wonderful customers, who are the "serendipity" part of Serendip! Our customers are so warm and supportive, that it's very easy to think of them as friends! Thank you, all of you, for everything you've done for Serendip and for me!

Meanwhile, we have our lucky prize drawing winners, who I'll be notifying by phone and/or email later today:
Vikki W: You have won Glenn Seabloom's handthrown stoneware jar, donated by the artist.
Jerry P: you are the lucky recipient of a Serendipity Basket, filled with handcrafted items donated by Barbara Crockett, Cricket Such, Laura Neal, Joan Hatcher, Claudia Carreon, Jen Float, and a few other surprises.
Lee J: Arlene Cucculelli's rose & chic floral arrangement will grace your surroundings!
Don L: you have won the other Serendipity Basket, which includes handcrafted items donated by Jim Burrowes, Sue Nason, Barbara Crockett, Cricket Such, Joan Hatcher, Jen Float, and a few other surprises.
Lesley C: you have won the pottery vase/planter with the arrowhead plant, donated by Morris Clayworks.

Congratulations to our winners! And thank you all for helping us celebrate our first anniversary in Powell!!

Saturday, August 7, marked the Artists' Reception for Rocco Pisto's one man show, entitled Organic Vibrations. We had a wonderful turnout of Rocco's friends and followers, and the opportunity to view some of his new works.
