Bovano Farewell Artist Event
Saturday, October 28: 10am – 4pm
We have had the pleasure working with Jim, his family and artist team for roughly 20 years and it is bittersweet to say goodbye to this talented family of artisans. We will be celebrating, with Jim, at Epilogue on Saturday, October 28th with a copious amount of favorite, new, and rare copper enamel works. This will truly be a special event and a last chance to meet Jim, purchase special pieces and have them signed by this very special friend.
The Right to Read Event
October 7th – 22nd, 2023
With a name like “Epilogue” we believe in the right to read!
The age we live in is at times wondrous, at times challenging, at times curious, and at times dangerous. All of these are what combine to make up what can be thought of as our personal book of life.
At Epilogue, we believe in books. And we believe in the importance of the freedom to read what we want, when we want, and where we want. That is why we have teamed up with several of our artists to create and offer a range of works embracing this basic belief!
Come discover all the wonderful and exclusive items created to help us in our quest to take a stand on the importance of the freedom to read.
Beginning October 7th through October 22nd, we will donate a portion of ALL sales to the organization Unite Against Book Bans.org, a national initiative to empower readers everywhere to stand together in the fight against censorship.
“It is not enough to simply teach children to read; we have to give them something worth reading. Something that will stretch their imaginations – something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own.”
Saturday, July 29th: 10am – 6pm
Sunday, July 30th: 10am – 5pm

St. Clair Designs
We love the story of these super versatile purses! Artist and owner, Megan, was a school teacher out in Colorado. To help make ends meet, she started an innovative side business creating purses from vintage upholstery and drapery fabric remnants.

We’re excited to share the pieces (and some surprises, we hear) she will be sending for us to feature at our trunk show!
