Peggy Bonnington, Featured Artist



Peggy Bonnington is a featured artist this month at ARTifacts - but in addition to her whimiscal artwork - she has loads of antiques for incredible prices - all worth a gander anytime you have a few minutes to sort through her eclectic collections.
Before this month's First Thursday ArtWalk, Peggy brought in a stack - of new artwork that she has drawn up for us. THey are all in plastic sleeves without frames - and ALL incredibly priced! They range from $5-$25. I have picked out my collection (she even named one for me cuz she knows how I love her trees!) so now you come in and pick one out for a friend or family member. And of course, pick some out for yourself!

















Featured Vendor - Lee Ireland

With all the attention on the 12 days of Christmas, we haven't given enough details on our amazing artists and antique dealers we are featuring this month!

We are starting today with Lee Ireland, stainglass artist and creative wonder! When Lee moved into ARTifacts, she was so excited, she struggled to decide which direction to go in with her creative items that she creates. Everytime she comes into the shop she has something new to share - and I always am so excited and impressed with the new creations she has whipped up!

All this while her best seller from day one continues to be the melted wine bottles, formed to create bowls and cheese plates. Customers love these for wine lovers, hostess gifts, wine bottle collectors and more.

One weekend last spring, Lee was even nice enough to teach us how to make these necklaces you see here - so much fun! The price that she has on them make it totally not necessary for you to wait until she teaches it again! Great selection, great fun!!

Lee has always made beautiful jewelry, but recently, she brought in this amazing collection of jewelry to sell. You will be very pleased with the prices on these pieces and what great gifts they would make this holiday season - the gift of local art!
Lee is an incredible talent - and we enjoy your talent all the time! Come see for yourself what she has to offer!
Cheers!

Filo - Featured Vendor for November 2009

Featured Vendor - Filo (First In, Last Out)

Ginger Mulvey Beireis says, “ I am excited to be part of the continuing Renaissance of downtown! I returned from NYC to Clarksville to open the ROXY (with former partners Tom and John) in 1983. The next year I bought a house on Dog Hill, which fostered an appreciation of local historic architecture, antiques, art, and "cool old stuff." This eventually led to sharing finds at ARTifacts. Byers & Harvey co-worker Rebecca Bell has joined me in the FiLo venture, featuring collectibles and "things your Mama used to use." We hope you also enjoy our treasures, and enjoy exploring downtown Clarksville!”

Co Worker Gifts?

My mom used to call me each year asking for ideas about what to get her co workers for Christmas. She always wanted something special for the people she worked with for so many years. She would hope for a gift that would be special and unique - but not too expensive since she had to buy for so many. Each year we would get more creative trying to fulfill her needs.

If she hadn't retired last year, I would have been calling her to tell her about these pieces featured below. They fit the bill perfectly!

Rachel Wainwright has an amazing talent for taking vintage transferware dishes of all kinds, and making special and unique jewelry. Pieces starting at $5, they are a perfect gift.



Another great gift for your friends would be scarves from Eunice Kern. Eunice hand paints on silk and creates all kinds of works of art. Items ranging from barretts and pins, and colorful scarves and frame paintings.

Veterans Day

[Photo]ARTifacts would like to thank all the former and current American soldiers for their sacrafice and their commitment to a higher purpose! Bless you!

Fun Holiday Items

Susan Davis is a newer vendor for us here at ARTifacts. She just totally changed out her booth there this past week. It is all ready for the holidays! I love how she takes regular items from our everyday uses and repurposes them to be a wonderfully creative decoration. I feel so festive already!



This lighted topiary is beautiful! It has the colorful floral at the top, with the art on the candle stick with Susans creative touch added to it.
























This snowman teapot cracks me up! Carrot nose and wonderful teapot hat! She has a couple of these, one large one small.









































Simple birdhouse in wonderful colors, wrapped in grapevine wreath - love the sweet country style of this piece.





This wonderful painting of "eight maids a milking" is a wonderful addition to your holiday decor.









I really enjoy the whimsical look of this chair with the vintage painted skate hanging from it.

Come see what else we have in store for you at ARTifacts.
