Wow! The first days of a retreat are oh so exciting and this year’s Virginia Retreat is no exception. Workshop attendees hustling through the hotels and Convention Center with GIGANTIC rolling bags and satchels in tow…  Teachers excitedly claiming their class supplies from the “secret room”…  And, WHOA! Wait a minute! What have we here? Oh my goodness! Take a look at this gorgeous store setup by Judy Gula from Artistic Artifacts! Oh, I know some people will get carried away in here! Thanks, Judy!

And speaking of shopping, don’t forget — Vendor Night for Hampton is tomorrow, Saturday, April 30th from 6-9pm. It’s open to everyone and free for all Virginia attendees (only $10 for the general public – and totally worth it!). Tons of mixed media supplies, ephemera, antique bits and bobs, embellishments of all kinds, beads, fabric and of course original art and jewelry from your favorite artists and instructors! Vendor Night will take place in the Hampton Roads Convention Center, 1700 Coliseum Drive, Hampton, VA 23666.

See you there!
