4 days until the show!

Cheryl Graham and Gretchen Finch

Cheryl and Gretchen are two of the original chicks and they also are the organizers of the show. They are great friends who share a LOVE of buttons!!

Cheryl will have her 'Letter' painted canvases, unique little address books, one of a kind frames, vintage button collages and journals.

Gretchen will have vintage button collages, sterling silver button bookmarks, and button bracelets. This will be her 9th year to create a sculpted folk art creation. These 'Merry Mates', a sweet Penguin and his Cardinal friend capture the spirit of the holiday.

Cheryl and Gretchen have both created unique 'Treasure Boxes', their new item this year. Each small, metal, embellished box is one of a kind and comes with a surprise inside. A perfect gift for someone you treasure!
