Linda Bowman here. I know you all are working hard in your studios…where I hope it is nice and warm.
I wanted to tell you a few things about Louisville clay’s annual sale, Home Thrown/ Home Grown. Once again, we will be at the Deer Park Baptist Church, 1733 Bardstown Road. Anyone who is a current member of Louisville Clay is eligible to participate.
One change is that we have decided to move the date to May 20th and 21st. There is an event called Bardstown Bound on the 21st, Saturday. This is put on by the Highlands Commerce Guild and encourages people to explore the Bardstown Road corridor. We thought it might be interesting to try having our sale at the same time. We might get more visitors, more publicity.
Also this year Janet Essenpreis has agreed to co chair the sale with me, and I really appreciate her willingness to take on this task.
We will have a security guard Friday night and a crossing guard on Saturday to help people cross the street between the Farmers Market and our sale. The crossing guard was a big hit with customers last year.
Everyone must: have a tent....make your own sales transactions...and be prepared to have good time....
As event organizers, we are required to tell you that you are responsible for charging your sales tax and reporting it.
As the date approaches, I will be back in touch to remind you of the “job” you signed up for on you’re application.
There will be a postcard, which will go out to all on the Louisville Clay mailing list. We will do a "lick and stick" time when the postcards are ready. Also we will buy an ad in the "Highlander" news paper which will hit the street June 1st. Leo and CJ will also carry the event in their happenings sections.
There will be postcards for each of you to send out to your mailing list. Feel free to post, tweet, Facebook...whatever....we will send you an electronic version of the postcard when it is ready.
