Artisan Christmas Open House & Market

Pajama Factory artist Tammy Daneker is doing her Christmas Open House and Market again this year and you really don’t want to miss it!

I wanted to share the info for my Christmas Open House and Market! I know it’s the same weekend as the PJFactory Holiday Market, but several PJF people are participating as vendors, and it’s pretty close by. So I say put your shopping shoes on and see it all!!

Organic Gardening Center goes to school

Brian and Marc from the Organic Garden Center

Brian and Marc from the Organic Garden Center were in Blossburg this week, teaching some very lucky students about hydroponics.

If you haven’t stopped in to the Organic Garden Center lately, drop by sometime—it’s a gorgeous shop staffed by people who are always willing to share their knowledge. (The OGC is at the corner of Rose and Park, on the first floor of the Pajama Factory.)

BATHVS

Shana Eichenberg is a tenant who’s used her space in the Pajama Factory to build her bath, body and hair care business from the ground up.

Bathvs, (pronounced ‘bathus’) is all made by hand in her 4th floor studio, where Shana formulates the recipes, produces each batch, packages and ships orders all over the world and works on marketing, both through Facebook, Etsy and now her shiny new website. (She also sells her products at Roots Hair Studio by Karen in building 6 of the factory!)

We’re happy and proud to have Shana and Bathvs as one of our many small businesses at the Pajama Factory—we can’t wait to see what *you* will do here!

Here’s her new site—go take a look!

PortObserver.com

There’s an excellent new blog in town, one with a heavy emphasis on art and entertainment, which is, of course, something very near and dear to our hearts: PortObserver.com.

Started by Pajama Factory alumnus Matthew Parrish, it contains some very high quality writing in a format that allows them to dig deeper and find the story behind the story. Case in point is this piece on Tim Miller’s piece at Converge Gallery.

Go read that piece and put the site in your list of daily-read bookmarks. After that, head over to their Facebook page and click “like”.

Todd Rice

Factory denizen Todd Rice is the subject of a new article over on Port Observer, a great looking new site focusing on our area. (Thanks for the tip, Matthew Parrish!)

Todd Rice’s ‘Alien Sanctuary’ at the Pajama Factory
By MATTHEW PARRISH, editor@portobserver.com

On Facebook, artist Todd Rice often posts pictures of movie monsters — the Creature from the Black Lagoon, for example — encroaching upon scantily clad women frozen in horror or engaged in epic battles (King King verses a giant snake!). He has also shared amusing behind-the-scenes photos of a human dwarfing Godzilla simply by standing next to the surprisingly small, toy-sized creature, and Ultraman hugging his large, lizard-like foe. It’s the type of imagery one would expect and hope for from a guy who grew up spending his Friday and Saturday nights glued to the television watching old horror movies.
