We have some wonderful things coming up at Serendip!

First, you'll want to plan on attending the Powell Street Market on May 1, between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. The plans call for 125 vendors lining Powell's historic streets, offering antiques, collectibles, art, crafts, and food. And, of course, Serendip will participate enthusiastically, with Jim Burrowes and Barbara Crockett showing off their woodturning skills. Susie Lowder will expand her collection of vibrant, gorgeous paintings onto our front lawn. Finally, we'll be offering lots of new products and exciting spring merchandise beginning that day!

And, of course, Mothers' Day is coming. Don't forget to stop by Serendip for unique gifts for the special women in your life! On May 2, we'll start registering you for a chance to win a fantastic Serendip gift basket, with a selection of items to make your mother smile. The basket will include handcrafted jewelry, original art, home accent items, and so many fun treats...

Then comes Powell Night Out, on May 5 from 5-8. Barbara will provide her lovely flute serenades, and we'll make sure you have some refreshments while you enjoy strolling through historic downtown Powell's unique shops, galleries, and restaurants. Plan to come to town and stay late!

POWELL NIGHT OUT!! Thursday, 4/7, 5-8 pm!!

The Market at Serendip is so excited about our season’s first POWELL NIGHT OUT, Thursday, April 7, from 5 – 8 p.m. Serendip will offer our usual light refreshments, but best yet, we’ll offer an artist demonstration on our front porch!

Jim Burrowes, a native of the Dayton area, has worked with wood most of his life. He has worked in construction, furniture building, and, most recently, woodturning, which began as a hobby and quickly became a passion. His work has earned both local and national recognition. Jim is in demand as a woodturning instructor and demonstrator. He is a member of the Ohio Valley Wood Turners Guild, Central Ohio Woodturners and The American Association of Woodturners, where he is listed as an instructor in the national directory. He teaches woodturning in his own studio, as well as at the John C. Campbell Folk School.

Jim has a passion for learning and a special gift for sharing his knowledge and techniques with others. It’s a joy to watch him work, listen to his jokes, and feel his love for the natural beauty found in wood.
