‘You need a shrimp’ and other thoughts

SALISBURY — The Salisbury Artisans Group came to the White Hart Saturday, Nov. 26, to offer unusual and handmade gifts for holiday shoppers.

Jocelyn Krodman (Petit Felts) had a new line of Christmas tree ornaments: little mushrooms, bananas and shrimp.

They came with a deal (one for $15, two for $20) and a sales pitch.

“You need a shrimp,” Krodman said to a wavering shopper. “People don’t realize they need a shrimp.”

It worked. The woman bought a shrimp and a mushroom.

While eyeing the potholders from  Jennifer Markow (Strings and Stones of Cornwall), musing on the lamentable state of his own supply,  and scribbling in a notebook, a reporter was approached by Molly Hardy (Favorite Places Art).

“Are you taking food orders?” she inquired.

This sort of interaction is what separates the Artisans from other shopping experiences. It’s like dropping in on old friends after a prolonged absence.

The Nov. 26 show was the last scheduled event for the group before Christmas. For more information on the vendors involved, go to www.artisansale.org.
