“Seconds” are items that don’t meet quality standards for retail but are lovely if you don’t mind a ding or two.  Much of the time the different is barely noticeable.  We are cleaning out our studio to make way for new projects and will have a selection of lighting and smaller goods available at discounts up to 60% off!

Space + Place : Radio Interview

Saturday, November 30th, 2013

Lisa Jones of Pigeon Toe Ceramics and I were recently interviewed by for CJSW’s Space + Place radio program.  It was a pleasure to speak with Amery about how Caravan got started and how The Makery, the collective studio Lisa and I work in, is helping me to become a better maker.  CJSW Space + Place #29 Neighbourhood Terroir.  (Interview starts at 11:40)

There are a number of great makers, bakers and neighborhood activists on the program, including our neighbors from Lowell, a unique store that sources hand crafted clothing, Navajo rugs, and the most beautiful carved wooden spoons you’ve ever held in your hand.

Listen and let us know what you think!
