Shop Small – November 24, 2012 – Winslow Bainbridge Island, WA

November 23rd, 2012 at Fri, 23rd, 2012 at 8:32 pm by Lisa - Gluten Free Foodie

Do you know what sounds like the perfect day tomorrow? 
Participating in Shop Small Business Saturday in my community
on Bainbridge Island.

Tops on my lists tomorrow ...

I know I'm going to swing by 
Hitchcock and say 
Happy Birthday! 
It is so fun to see all the new and exciting things going on at the
Delicatessen and Charcuterie
My how they have grown in one year!
Grab a bite to eat for a snack, lunch or take home some hand cured meat or seafood .
All cappuccino and coffees are $1 all weekend - 
November 24 - 25.

One of my favorite shops along Winslow is Danger.  
I love that they offer local art and designs that are one of a kind - all inspired by the Pacific Northwest.
Say Hello to Dave Meyers and Kelly Asadorian the artists of
Myorian Studio  
Their designs are created from metal and glass for the perfect hand made gifts - big or small.
I love love love this wall piece - candle tree. 
 It will make any color on your wall pop from the dark metal 
and sparkle from the candle light.
Eh um ... Santa are you reading this?!?
The colorful plates are more than just art they are meant to be used.  Kelly makes various sizes for appetizers, dessert and platters.  Hang them on your wall or place them on a stand on your shelf when you aren't using them so you can enjoy the designs.  The plates always make a great gift for housewarmings and the holidays.

Myorian Studio designs are Made in Indianola, WA USA. 

Lighting and tabletop designs from Perhacs Studio
Inspired by nature, 8 laser cut leaves create this contemporary lighting.
I love how the light casts soft shadows around the room.
It makes my dining room and the food on my table look even more impressive!
 This lighting is made of recycled cardboard.
It is also available online in LED black, white and red.
Go to Danger to see some of Perhacs Studio  sustainable designs. Additionally
Brandon Perhacs designs are sold online.

Learning to live Gluten Free is a challenge. Gathering with like minded people while exchanging ideas, life experiences and gluten free food is more interesting! So I created, Gluten Free Foodies, to support people with Celiac Disease, Gluten Intolerant and other Food Sensitive people by gathering at events and celebrating the foods that we can eat! Do you have a Gluten Free question you want the answer to? Feel free to send me an email at Original blog - After all, didn't Erma Bombeck once say ... "I am not a glutton, I am an explorer of food."
