Jane Kaufmann's lily orb sits on the corner of table next to Jae. Our temporary French door table holds new jewlery, photographs and drawings by Tim Johnson (Worcester, MA), and shelters Frank Ridley's toys. One the wall hangs a sculpture of felted wool and clay by husband-and-wife team Geoff Buddie & Chris Rom (Swanton, OH).

Toys from Different Drummer Workshop

Frank Ridley has been making toys from local pine in the northern woods of Solon, Maine, for 30 years. All toys are sold unfinished, posing no health risks to tots who might like to chew. They may also be painted.

Shelves that Dad Made

Long Shelves

These are the long shelves Dad (Dick Shaw) made for the shop. These two are 10' long, and then there's a pair of 4' long shelves nearer to the door. They feature a lip at the edge, tiny peg holes 3" from the back so you can stand up pictures or platters at any point along the entire length, and a deep bevel on the underside, almost like an airplane wing, giving them a sense of lightness.
