As Halloween approaches and the fall colors reach their peak, we will once more be opening the glass studio for an additional 2-day fall pumpkin making event. Due to popular demand we are pleased to invite you to come in and watch as we blow glass pumpkins in a variety of fall colors and sizes. We will be offering a “pick your own pumpkin”* opportunity to our customers; for a special price you may select the colors and size of your own custom made pumpkin and then see it made for you as you watch! Pink and yellow your favorites? No problem. You tell us how it will look. We will have some fall time refreshments and naturally, you may browse our store and see all the other wonderful glass pieces we have available.

The hours will be:

Saturday, October 23 – 10 am – 5 pm

Sunday, October 24 – 11 am – 4 pm

*Pumpkins made as part of the “pick your own pumpkin” special will be available for pickup the day following that on which they were made. Out of town people may make arrangements with us to ship theirs if they wish.

Please feel free to share this email with a friend.

Our regular gallery hours are Thursday and Friday 12-6 pm, Saturday 10-5pm and Sunday 11-4 pm.

We look forward to seeing you.

Fun Fact about Syracuse & Onondaga County …. did you know …..

… the hamlet of Cardiff, which lies within the town of LaFayette, is the home to one of the biggest hoaxes in American History – the Cardiff Giant. George Hull, an atheist, hired a sculptor in Chicago and had the finished “giant” shipped by rail to the farm of William Newell where it was buried. About a year later (October 16, 1869), he had workers dig a well on the site and they found the giant. Hull set up a tent and charged 25 cents per person to see it. The premise was that this was evidence of a giant race of peoples that were mentioned in the Bible, Genesis 6:4. Eventually the exhibit was sold and moved to Syracuse where P.T. Barnum offered the new owner $50,000. When Barnum was turned down, he had a plaster replica made, noting that his was the original. In 1870, after much litigation, both were declared fakes. The original piece can be seen today at the Farmers Museum in Cooperstown.
