Light the Fire pottery event Saturday

Potters gathering this Saturday for the annual Light the Fire event at the Florence Filberg Centre from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. remind shoppers about the importance of buying local.

• Handmade pottery makes a great gift. Each piece is made with care and love, it has a personality, it is unique and carries with it your message of caring.

• Using and having handmade items inspires creativity. It is a reminder to see the world in new ways, an inspiration to pick up pen and paper, a piece of wood, or some knitting needles.

• When you buy local pottery, you are supporting a local entrepreneur, a truly small business.

• Pottery is an affordable art. It is art at a reasonable price and it is art that you can use.
