Our annual Flower Fairy Festival is just weeks away and the dates and times have been set for the Fairy Teas. Designed for ages 5 – 12, these teas feature tea, treats, and lots of fun.
There will be two teas, but only room for 12 attendees at each, so drop by or call 503-472-4923 soon to make reservations. Cost is $15 per person.
Seatings will be Friday, August 10th from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and Saturday, August 11th from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Next time you visit the jewelry counter, you will find a rich variety of beautifully fused glass pieces by local Salem artist Robert Fox. Heart pendants in every swirly color, twisty pendants in the shape of a cocoon (or small sea shell, depending on your perspective), and unique teardrop earrings. Each piece is truly one-of-a-kind, handmade by the artist.
It’s summer, flowers are blooming in the McMinnville Community Garden and you’ll find them here at Incahoots, freshly cut and ready for your vases. This year, Leah has the fun of picking the flowers and has been bringing back a nice amount each week. But with the warmer weather, the plants are taking off and there will be a steady supply of fresh sunflowers, statice, love-lies-bleeding, zinnias, purple majesty millet and many others for weeks to come.

Looking for a unique gift for a woman in your life who inspires those around her? New in the shop you will find a beautiful line of metal tokens and 3″x 5″ metal pinboard art for just that person. “She Inspires” is a collection of empowering words for all of us. Each limited edition token was designed by artisan metalsmith, Kris Lanae Binsfeld. Tokens are perfect for a purse or pocket and pinboards can be displayed on a stand or hang from an attached ribbon.
You’ll be enchanted with the changes being planned for this year’s Fairy Festival. Rain and Janet have been busy working on the schedule and in addition to everyone’s favorite fairy activities they will be adding some new fun – there will even be an evening of live music!
I’ll be sharing more details as they are decided, but for now, mark your calendar (with glitter perhaps?) for the second week of August.
Kindness, Courage, Friendship and Wisdom are featured in NEW inspirational gift sets by Artist Kelly Rae Roberts. “Manifesto Books” celebrate a theme on every colorful page, and include a magnetic post card with matching artwork. Boxed Card Sets feature a wooden display stand and set of six unique art cards with uplifting messages. The 4 x 6 cards can be rotated on display or dropped in the mail. The stand can also double as a display for a favorite photo.
You’ll notice a change the next time you stop by Incahoots. Mason has been scraping and painting in the outdoor yard and adding touches of fresh new color. I like how the bold red really sets off the plants.
A change you probably won’t see is that Rain has worked her way through the office sorting, recycling, and cleaning. It’s something that’s been on my to-do list for longer than I call recall so it’s fantastic that someone is making it happen.
With the running around for supplies and making decisions about what goes and what stays, Janet and I have done our best to keep up with the both of them. Thankfully, Andrea is around and keeping us supplied with plenty of email articles and ideas for weekly specials!
And if you assumed that Incahoots will be closed on the 4th of July, you have assumed correctly. We hope you have a safe and happy holiday!
We are excited to carry a NEW style of necklace at our jewelry counter that makes a perfect gift for anyone you hold close to your heart. Featuring a dozen different designs and beautiful packaging to express your message, each handcrafted pendant is shaped into a heart, on a 32-inch tasseled chain. Locket penden
ts open with a magnetic closure to hold special notes or mementos inside. Each necklace is a special work of art that they will always keep near their heart.
Now that we have a little free time and are pretty much guaranteed of dry weather, it’s time to start tackling some of those projects we’ve been thinking about. For some reason, our spring cleaning and general sprucing up always seems to have to wait until summer to get into gear. We’ll probably also throw in a bit of painting this year and the staff has lots of ideas about giving the restroom a complete makeover as well. Can’t wait to get started!
