NH Open Doors
November 2 & 3
10 AM to 4 PM
Come visit Petals in the Pines as we take part in NH Open Doors, a statewide event sponsored by NH Made and the League of NH Craftsmen. During this two-day event you can visit artisans where they create their craft. Our farm stand will be open and you can see where we make our leaf stones and host workshops.
We've added new Leaf Stone products this year including Sedum Planters, Lazy Susans and Table Tops, in addition to our already popular Leaf Stone Bird Baths. We have a variety of garden and nature-themed, hand-stamped, and hand-dyed silk scarves. Also, an assortment of adorable fruit & veggie knit hats for toddlers. There are gourds and corn stalks available for fall decorating too.
We'll be serving refreshments and you can roast a marshmallow over the campfire while you're here. Stroll the grounds and check out the new pavilion we built this year. It's home to our "Indian Paintbrush Nature Art Area" and where we host garden/nature themed birthday parties. Kids can build a fairy house or create something in Sand City. There is something here for everyone!
There are 12 other artisans in Canterbury participating as well. Visit the NH Open Doors web site for a map of the Canterbury artisans on the tour and for artisans in your area. We hope you can stop in here for a visit!
