It’s Official – MaidenShade Studio will be setting up shop in Suite 119 at The Promenade, a local mall in Bonita Springs, beginning August 27th through mid-November with occupancy possibly extending through season depending upon availability of shops. 

Imagine my delight to receive this news:

“Congratulations!  You have juried into the Art League Studios at the Promenade…”  

This is a collaborative effort between the mall’s owners, Premier Properties, the Art League of Bonita Springs, and local artists.  Artists occupy empty shops (casualties of the economy) and sell their work Tuesday’s, Thursday’s and Saturday’s and may be open other days if they wish as well. 

New MaidenShade HomeThese shops are also open and available in an evening monthly “Art Walk” of all studios, linking into an outdoor performance schedule of musical entertainment. These Art Walks will be scheduled in the evenings of the last Thursday of the month from June through November; and Fridays December through May.

A lovely vacation was spent this past week with my family on Sanibel Island, where the MaidenShade Lady met some lovely owners of local shops.  One of our best-est favorites was The Mermaid Kitchen and Cake Factory, where not only was the dining divine (can you say “yummm”?), but the creative decor and gracious staff made the experience simply magical!

You may not have noticed, but MaidenShade’s logo is a pair of mermaids, how could we not love it there? has gifts!
