What WAS new last month? ........December 2010 .........  What happened next?
 
Merry Mart 2010. Great to see all of our friends at the Merry Mart at the Creative Alliance at the Patterson again this year. Hope those wooden spatulas, snazzy crab mallets, muddlers and mortar & pestles are well received on Christmas morning. (Wasn't the food by Water for Chocolate Catering fantastic!)

Highlandtown Train Garden. Stop by the Conkling Street Fire House in Highlandtown to see this year's bigger and better train garden. Be sure to look for the new platform sections built by Mark Supik & Co. and a very tiny replica of Highlandtown's Frank Zappa statue sculpted by Danielle.

Congratulations to 3H Brewery. A new microbrewery in Rochester began distributing beer this month and we were happy to make their first set of tap handles. We wish them the best!

Amubleu. Speaking of Danielle, she had a beautiful display at this year's Merry Mart, featuring her hand knit doll sweaters and accessories. To see some samples of her work, visit her Amubleu

Giant Gavel and Huge Column Bases. We're posting a video on YouTube. On the same day, Joe Supik turns a giant ceremonial gavel and John Supik face plate turns large column bases for a historic restoration.
