The gift was a result of Shelton's first Downtown Handmade Market, which was held every Saturday between Thanksgiving and Christmas 2014 in the old brick Conti building next to the Farmer's Market. All sorts of local vendors were in there selling gifts and the halls were decked for the holidays.

The Glass Source has their studio there, and they were selling some interesting glass items, including some glass garden portraits. My husband struck up a conversation with the owner, Micheal Skrtic, and arranged to have some custom artwork done for Eklund Garden. Never would have happened without the Downtown Handmade Market. I hope they do it again next year.
