Garden Art Sale promotion begins!

Looks like it's gonna' have to happen now. No turning back. The Buffalo-style Garden Art Sale committee is leader Barbara Maze (longtime Allentown Art Festival committee member), Allison Malikowski, Kathy Guest Shadrack, Mike Shadrack, Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy representative Laura Genco and myself. We've been working hard to first GET vendors, and now plotting and planning to make this event successful through marketing, planning a good vendor experience and a great visitor experience.

The event is free, there will be 22 (or so) vendors, a Plant Society Avenue of 10 area plant societies, master gardeners and the Buffalo & Erie County Botanical Gardens (bring questions!), the WNY Hosta Society Accredited Hosta Show, a Chinese Auction of items contributed by the Plant Societies, and all this is going on at the same time, and in the same footprint of the Parkside Garden Tour.

  1. Looks like some nice product. I am going to have to try and get to this event one of the two days. Our event may take up my time though, and I am not sure they will let me get free. I so much want to see your first garden art sale.

  2. Hi - LOVE LOVE LOVE your blogs! Is there any possibility of obtaining a Hearts In The Garden poster? I tried using the paypal icon on your blogpage but it wouldn't show it in my cart.

    Thanks so much! Can't wait to finally be able to visit the big tour this year. ;o)

  3. Donna,
    Thanks. I hope you can make it. Our event is ONLY on Sunday. I know they keep you busy at Lewiston GardenFest. There will be a lot more going on there than at the Garden art Sale.

    Tracee Wargo,
    Not sure what the problem is with Paypal. You could just mail me a check for $35 and I'll send one out to you. Send to: JCharlier, 215 Lancaster Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14222.
