Wow, I guess I’ve been pretty quiet “professionally” since our world changed. All my shows have been canceled and it’s been a struggle just to keep my head above water, but compared to so many others, I’m a lucky lady and extremely grateful to be relatively healthy, well fed, and safe. I’m wishing all of you the same and more. My favorite season is here, and I have high hopes for the future. Creatively yours, Marsi ❤️🍁🍂

Have a warm, wintry weekend!

Thanks to everyone who found me this season, in spite of so few shows! I appreciate your orders and your purchases. After 20 years of GiftFest, Margo West decided it was time to throw in the towel, and Cobblestone and I had a difference of opinion, and of course the fairgrounds show has been off limits for years, so it’s only the Chelsea Depot Artisans Market for me now. Next up is Chelsea Chocolate Extravaganza on February 8, 2020. More details coming soon. Hope to see you then!

Chelsea Depot Artisans' Market

A preview of some of the incredible artisans we have on tap for our upcoming Chelsea Depot Artisans Market held during Wine Women Shopping in downtown Chelsea on Saturday, November 9 from 10-5.
I've run out of photos from our artisans so I'll post a few of my own. My most popular items are small, inexpensive ornaments/charms/pendants. Bestsellers are my "snowflakes that never melt." They make great gifts for the snowbirds on your list. I might have a few stained glass panels for sale, too.

Marsi Parker Darwin from Chelsea's Darwin's Studio has been crafting glass for almost 30 years. Small, inexpensive ornaments and panels have become her specialty, offering handmade treasures at a price point for almost anyone. She (OK, I) also enjoys organizing little shows at the depot, helping to shine a light on the the immense talents we have in our area, and helping emerging artists to find a niche.

Chelsea's Chocolate Extravaganza is a perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a loved one, shake off the winter blahs, enjoy scrumptious treats, and support local businesses. The family-friendly event offers chocolate and Valentine-themed treats and activities in more than 30 local shops, restaurants, galleries and cafes. The stores each have their own distinct atmosphere and carry a sweeping variety of goods, which makes shopping a fun experience.
Please come see my friends and me at the Depot!
