Racks by the Tracks

Michael and Talina (Quinn in the background)

I am at the gallery today, and I have left my camera at home. Here I said that I would post pics on Monday, and it is Tuesday! Needless to say, I have yet to download my photos, but I have two to share with you that my friend Kim took. You can see little Quinn wandering in the background in the photo of me and Michael. The smaller photo below is me and Kim.

We had a great time at Racks by the Tracks! Sales weren't so great, though. I have read in the Etsy Forums that music festivals tend not to be great selling events for artisans/crafters. People go to festivals to eat, drink, listen to music... Enjoy hanging out, if you will, not spending money. Like I said, though, we had a great time. Talina and KimKingsport has definitely changed (for the better). It is all about community. We are now looking forward to Twighlight Alive and Bluegrass on Broad. Our next festival is the Blue Plum in downtown Johnson City. I am hoping that we will do better as far as sales. A fellow Etsian who is a potter, said she sold out last year. That would be a nice problem to have! Tomorrow, I will post a loft update. Thursday more Racks by the Tracks photos!

I'm glad you had a great time! Good luck to your upcoming shows too!

The Basics

Michael and Talina Ripper met online and when they met in person, they knew they had found something special, a once in a lifetime love. Michael obtained BFAs in both Wood Design and Ceramics from ECU. Talina has always been a creative/artistic spirit, but has her BSN from ETSU and still works as an RN. Talina has three sons, Seth (17), Aaron (8), and Jacob (7). Michael and Talina have a son together, Quinn, who is 17 months. They are getting settled in their downtown loft just around the corner from Michael's studio and the gallery. Their dream of living their art is coming true!
