Tomorrow is the Last Christmas Sale at Mindan's House and I'm super excited to be one of the guests artists to show and sell my creations at this private event.

Mindan is a talented silversmith and jewelry designer whom I was lucky to be neighbours with at Porotbello West for a bout a year. Her designs are classy with a modern twist - very versatile, clean looking and innovative (as in her transfomer pearl necklace in the video below):

Saturday, December 18th

241 East 17th Avenue @ Main

Come and enjoy some wine, Christmas cookies and homemade treats, and the fabulous creations by local artists and designers.

RSVP's appreciated, as well as any product requests as this is the end of the season so some items might need to be bottled especially for you :-)

This is the LAST event for the year and I won't be having any tea parties/markets/other events till February. So I really do hope to give you a big holiday hug before we start another new year of fragrant wonders...

This is the last event at Mindan's lovely studio on 17th @ Main street, as her studio will be relocating next year. It is also the last event of the year for Ayala Moriel Parfums. After that we will be on holiday-mode to catch up with much neglected areas of our lives (both personal and studio-wise): inventory control, putting stuff back on the shelves after being in and out of shows for 5 consecutive weeks, and spending much needed downtime with family and friends.

Holiday hours - December 19-January 4th:
Online orders will be shipped as usual, but the studio will be closed to guests so please do your shopping at this event as we will likely not be able to help you in person beyond this point.
We will also be reducing our presence in markets and fairs in 2011, and will be doing mostly private events instead.
The next tea party is planned for February 13th, 2011.

Happy Holiday Season!
