Here's a picture of the Fire House Gallery as it looks today.
In the past the Fire House in Berryville, VA served to protect the residents of the area.
I found this gallery through the all knowing 'Google'. I searched Art and Winchester, VA. I choose Winchester as a destination, because it's within my hour commute goal. Up popped a few artists. Then I opened their pages and started to read. That's how I found The Fire House Gallery. I had no idea where Berryville, VA was, so before I did anything I checked out Google maps. Then onto their web-site and read how to submit an application. The application was completed, along with a few pictures and then I waited. A couple weeks went by and I received a call. To tell the truth, if I hadn't received a call in another week I would have 'dropped in'.

I met with the Director and we had a wonderful time chatting about the history of the building and how the residents raised the money to have the fire house restored and transformed. We also discussed the business at hand, to include the contract they provide and the manifest of the jewelry I was submitting. I've enclosed pictures of a few of the pieces.

They provide, as most galleries do, all of the displays for the jewelry. I do need to create some earring tent cards, as this is the way they display all of the earrings. I started to do this this morning, but needed to take a break, since graphics don't come natural to me. I can figure it out, but it becomes time intensive and frustrating. So here I am writing to you. ~ Much nicer!
