The Pop-Up Garden Shop

I am pleased to announce the first of two events that I have created and that will be hosted at The Oscar Kincaid Home of History.

I came up with the Pop -Up Garden Shop and the Kincaid Fine Craft & Art Show during last fall when my mother and close friends where hosting the Pop The Cork. A wine tasting and benefit for the Historical Society of Boonton Township.

I helped out by cleaning and displaying the little roadstand that used to be a dairy and ice cream shop and later a farm stand.
As I was setting the mums and ferns around, I thought that it would make a great little garden shop, and so the idea was born.

The Pop-Up Garden Shop will take place on Saturday and Sunday, March 27th and 28th from 9a.m. to 4p.m.. At the Oscar Kincaid Home of History, on Powerville Rd., in Boonton Township, NJ.

I will have my pottery, planters, ceramic birds, garden soaps, and concrete leaves for sale.

There will also be a huge selection of cold hardy flowers, vegetables, potted bulbs and flowering branches.

In addition I will be giving garden consultations representing Mrs. Erb's fine gardens and there will be an amazing exhibit of botanical watercolor paintings by award winning artist Marge Varetoni.

A portion of all the proceeds will benefit restoring The Oscar Kincaid Home of History.

The Kincaid Fine Craft & Art Show will take place in mid September.

I'm holding a call for entries for that event, so If you are interested in participating please feel free to contact me.

Hope to see you there, rain or shine!


  1. Do you know of any wonerful week long workshops that might be available near you?

  2. Hi There Again Kit!

    I will be offering some weekend workshops here this coming summer at the Cornwallville Pottery.

    I am still in the works of gathering guest artists and will be posting the announcements soon.

    Concrete creation, plein air painting, mosaics, and numerous different ceramic workshops will all be a good possibility, and something to look forward to.

    If you are interested in a longer type workshop, Sugar Maples Craft Center is only 15 minutes away.
    Susan Beecher is the director and an amazing ceramic artist, and she always seems to put together some great line up's and courses.

    Hope to hear from you soon Kit, and your welcome to drop by anytime!

  3. Is Oscar Kincaid where I got that green armchair?
