Kalona Makers Market Holiday Open House

A big shout out to all of the vendors and customers at last Saturday’s open house! We had such a great gathering! The vendors created beautiful displays that were appreciated by the customers; there was a constant flow of customers present all day long. Thanks to EVERYONE who came!

Here are some photos from the day (photos by Rubye Ney).

Thank you!

Flora Galora!

Canaan Home & Farm now offers live edge wooden runners for your dining room table or decorative spaces! Live edge means that the natural edge of a piece of wood or furniture is intentionally left on the piece to enhance its beauty and create interest. Each runner is unique. I prepare the runners by thoroughly sanding the flat surfaces and then I apply several coats of satin finish. There is currently only one ash runner left in stock, but it's a beauty! You can find the runners in the Home Decor section of my online shop. More will be added soon. 

I collaborated with Melanie, owner of Farm Fresh Flora, to help display the runners with candles and fresh flowers. Melanie is a landscape and floral artist. Her arrangements are beautiful and fragrant, and her studio with attached greenhouse couldn't be more charming. Call her to get a holiday centerpiece, a gift for your hosts, or an arrangement for any special event! Her flowers will make you happy.

Thanks for Joining Us!

The holiday pop-up shop was such a good time! We had hot cider, coffee and snacks, plus homemade cookies being baked right in the showroom! You never know exactly how things will turn out until you actually get set up, as was in this case. When it all came together, we felt that we had a nice balance of offerings for our customers.

We want to sincerely thank all of you who stopped by to visit yesterday! We appreciate your support.
