Shows and Shops!

22 Jun

I just finished updating the Rawhide Studio jewelry outlets page on the website and blog and realized we now have 20 outlets spread from East to West! Wow! It has been a pleasure to work with everyone of them and along the way we have made some lovely friends. Over the summer our blog posts will be about some of these great stores and a few of our summer art fair adventures.

Now let’s travel to the beautiful and artsy little town of Buffalo WY. Walk down Main Street and you will soon see the best shop on Main St, Margo’s Pottery. Owned by potter Margo Brown, she focuses mainly on American made functional and whimsical crafts.  These include ceramics, blown glass, jewelry, furniture, fabric arts, wooden utensils and other items as well as metal art. The store’s vibe is friendly and relaxed and the quality of the work is top notch!

Margo's Pottery is a must go to when you visit Buffalo WY

After shopping at Margo’s head over to the Occidental Hotel for a bite to eat and if you are there at the right time you can enjoy some live Bluegrass music. Plenty of famous people from Butch Cassidy to Teddy Rooseveldt have stayed at the hotel ( some ghost and original bullet holes too I’m told)!

Chock full of history and Bluegrass music, stop for lunch or stay the night in one of the wonderful rooms for guests.

Absaroka Western Designs and Tannery

When we say Rawhide Studio is Wyoming made we really mean it! Since the beginning we have tried to find a local source for our rawhide. When we searched the internet and came across Absaroka Western Designs in Dubois WY, we knew we had to make the 5 hour trek to see what the place had to offer. When we arrived at the shop we met the owner Joe Brandl and explained that we made jewelry out of rawhide and were looking for a Wyoming source. He took us through his workshop and then showed us some of his antelope and elk hides. We sorted through them, purchased a few and headed back to our campsite excited about our find! Of course the trip had to include some fishing for Dave and we made a connection with a gallery in Dubois called Pony Tracks.  All and all a great trip to a beautiful part of Wyoming!

She’s worked hard all her life so her hubby decided to splurge and buy her a pair of Prairie Pine earrings. As soon as the Prairie Pine necklace comes online he’s going to buy that for her too! Then she can stop wearing that boring cameo brooch!
