Dear Friends of Sivertson Gallery and Siiviis,
Wow, what a GREAT summer and fall season we had here at the gallery!! We had a blast re-connecting with friends and meeting lots of new customers. So many new faces, and so many new giclee prints! It seemed like every day there was a new Liz Sivertson or Dave Gilsvik giclee to be hung on the wall (my arms are still sore). In addition to giclee prints, Dave was pounding out original paintings, too! Currently, we have 14 of his original oil paintings on our wall… pretty impressive.
Now it is November, and the gallery has slowed down significantly. There are few tourists in town, and although the wind is howling, rarely do we have to re-fill the hot water container for our complementary tea (usually a 3 or 4 time a day task in the summer). Nevertheless, even though foot traffic has dropped, don’t for a second think that we are slacking here in Grand Marais! We are completely re-vamping our website, here at the gallery. Adding giclees fresh from the Print Shop, new jewelry and original prints that arrived this summer, and of course, holiday cards!
We are also busy planning our Black Friday festivities. We are closed on Thanksgiving, but will open our doors at 10 am, ready for the madness and fun that is Black Friday on the north shore. In addition to a free 2014 calendar with any purchase over $10 (both in store and online), we will be hosting a Trollbead trunk show! I am very excited for the trunk show, as there have been SO MANY new beads released in the last couple of months. Just a week or so ago, we received the new Winter 2013 TrollBeads and boy, are they impressive. Stay tuned for a Trollbead blog post next week with more information on the new beads and our trunk show deals!
Thanks for reading!
Until next time,
Abby and the Sivertson Crew
