Hi, I was first here in 76..so I know what you mean, it was charming. There has always been somewhere here that was a starting place for an artist..it used to be Canyon Road, where you could rent and open part of your house to tourists, and it looks like the "flea" is another starting place, where as downtown is so overmerchandised, and the rents so high that it's a bit too complicated.

As a jeweler, I always sold through galleries, but in the last few years, I find I am assuming more risk for less income. Crowded cases, damaged pieces, late checks..time to regroup, come up with something new to make, and hit the street.

Thanks John! and all. annie
