It's time for the Summer Studio Sale. The one day of the year you are actually invited to my house.

Set your GPS to 6815 Hwy 49 Laurens, SC 29360.

Drawings, sculptures, and wearable art will be available from me. The coolest drawings and paintings by Elizabeth Snipes-Rochester. The best ceramic work from Sandy Singletary will be here. Cool, new folk art will be available from my friend Leroy Perkins. This year I'll also have a limited number of "The Book Of Butts" and "The Book Of Skulls" paperback books plus the NEW book "The Book Of Butts II"! We have a cool design for this year's special studio sale tshirts available for purchase. Seriously, we'll have all the stuff you can't live without here.
There will be art priced from $5 up to the hundreds. There's no gallery commission here so this is as cheap as you'll ever see it. Something for every budget!
We expect to have Square up and running for the sale so we can take debit and credit cards! We take cash from everyone. Checks from family and friends. We can also accept Paypal through the "send money" option to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Georgie is planning to set you up with complementary snacks and drinks worthy of the drive. Sweets and drinks and all sorts of great goodies. These will go fast!
Everyone who attends will be entered to win an ink on wood drawing. Everyone who makes a purchase gets entered a second time.
If you cant make the drive, you may make internet purchases beginning at 11am on July 7. Shoppers who show up will have an hour head start on the good stuff, so please text , email or call me to be sure the item you want is still available. You must pay by card or Paypal at the time of the purchase. Call or text for cards. Paypal payment can be made by using the "send money" option, not "goods and services" to email@example.com or you can email me and we can send you an invoice by email with Paypal link for payment. Please add the shipping cost to the price when you pay. If you don't pay shipping, arrange to pick up your item. (Shop online below as updated photos appear. I'll update this post with photos and prices in the coming days.)
If you've never made it to the sale in person, you need to come. There will be tons more than just drawings and sculptures available. Steel mugs, flowers, keychains, jewelry, yard art and even art made by my kids will be here. There will be things that you never knew existed but you can't live another day without.
