Anyone Know Anything About Rushton Canoes?

You read the title correctly. We are looking for someone near us (Lisbon,NY 13658) that knows about Rushton Canoes.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen it and I don’t have a picture of it at this point in time either. We need someone that knows about them to let us know what kind of shape it’s in and about how much it’s worth. So, if you are a Rushton canoe person, please comment so that  we can start to get the ball rolling on this mystery. When I do get to see it. I am going to take pictures so that I have something I can show. In the meantime, I’m searching for information.

The Antique and Artisan Show

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a week since the show. It was a wonderful show and it was even better because my cousin came up from CT and we were able to go to the show together. It was great! The lunch was fabulous and dessert was to die for. I was able to get a new hand crafted mirror for the Adirondack room and I’m very excited about it! It’s done in birch bark with twigs around the sides. Just perfect for that room.

Getting ready for the show was both work and fun. I created some new soaps and made some lotions which sold well.

This is Patchouli made from goat’s milk soap. It was a popular purchase at the show as was the lotion.

This is actually lavender vanilla but I’m going to make some the same color in chocolate.
These are some brand new pressed flower soaps with baby powder fragrance. My cousin says if blue had a smell this would be it. These were also a hit at the show.
A new soap that can be used to clean your hands after gardening or for your feet. It’s an exfoliating soap made from shea butter with pumice for that extra scrubbing. The shea butter makes your skin soft.
This soap has a wonderful smell. Goat’s milk with a lemongrass essential oil fragrance. Wonderful!
All in all, the show was a great experience. Making all of these new soaps was a lot of fun. There are more to come. For those of you that check the website, please be patient with me. School is extremely busy at this time and my time to upload things to the website is limited. You can always shoot me an email if there’s something you’d like that you see here. I’m working on the spa bags and gardening gift baskets for mother’s day gift giving as well. Hopefully, I’ll get these onto the site very soon.
