It's Glitter Market Week

 Actually Glitter Market is not a week, just one sensational Saturday but we love to use the whole week before Glitter Market to preview our talented vendors and all of their goods you will be wanting next Saturday, May 3rd.
Glitter Market will be held at Paper Crown this year since we have a new wonderful room upstairs. I don't think we have had Market at the store since the first Glitter Market, 5ish years ago! It's a fun day of shopping, seeing old friends and tasty treats. This spring we will have some veteran Glitter Market vendors in addition to some soon to be favorite new comers! Doors will open at 10 am but the line usually starts forming at 8 am. For the most part, it is a cash only market; however, it is up to each vendor to decide if they want to take checks and a few might have the ability to take credit cards. We want you to be aware so you don't miss out on that special something.

Our very first sneak peek is from a veteran Glitter Market vendor and the artists furthest from home, Colette Copeland. Colette is a Canadian artist and if you follow her blog,  or follow her in the Somerset magazines, you know she has been busy getting ready for Glitter Market. Colette has a large collection of whimsical textiles, collages, paintings and other surprises. Colette is very good to Paper Crown and has given our store a mention several times in various Somerset magazines. The most recent issue of Somerset Studio has an article on Colette and the June Sew Somerset will feature Colette's kites, inspired by last year's Glitter Market!
Here's Your Chance to Learn
 from a Somerset Artist
In addition to being a vendor, Colette has agreed to teach a palette knife painting class the Thursday before Glitter Market. You won't want to miss out on this class as Colette shares her techniques with the ladies of Paper Crown. Colette's art class is this Thursday evening, May 1 from 5:30-8:30. Cost is $60. to reserve your seat, Call Paper Crown, 405 848-2389.
