The Painted Pig, a Lovettsville business that sells homemade crafts created by local artisans, will hold its one-year birthday party from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22.
Co-owner Scottie Vosburgh said that visitors will have the chance to win artist giveaways, receive free presents, sample food from Firebirds Wood Fired Grill and meet Little Lady, the shop’s pig mascot. “It really is just a true celebration of local artists,” said co-owner Denise Berg.
Attendees can also help paint a mandala pattern of the shop’s logo on a large banner, something Berg said would be a way to get people interested in art.
Opened during the town’s Oktoberfest last year, The Painted Pig sells crafts from about 50 artisans at any given time, including jewelry, paintings, signs, furniture, soap and home décor. “[We sell] just nearly any craft that you can think of,” Vosburgh said. “Business has been wonderful—we’re really very pleased.”
The shop is open Thursday to Saturday and offers customers crafts priced anywhere from the single digits to hundreds of dollars. It was also voted the best store for gifts in the Loudoun Now2018 Loudoun’s Favorites readers’ poll.
