In the past couple of weeks, I have had several people ask me about my beaded antique fire truck, Engine Co. 6. They all asked the same question – how much is it? Currently, Engine Co. 6 is listed as ‘Not for Sale‘ at the Dairy Barn Cultural Arts Center in Athens, Ohio. The reason for this is because it is very special to me. I created the 1943 replica Chevy fire engine in memory of a childhood friend who perished in a fire many years ago. I may decide to part with it in the future, but I just haven’t decided on that yet. So for now, just for fun, I have decided to add the image to my CafePress shop for a LIMITED TIME ONLY.
The fire truck image is available on postcards, a totebag, a coffee mug, a mousepad, and a magnet. This offer will run for the duration of the Bead International 2008 exhibit-through Sept 1, 2008 ONLY. If you are interested in the actual beaded fire truck, please remember that I do accept commissions. Contact me through my website for more information.
While I announce a new image, I must also announce the discontinuation of 2 designs which are currently available on CafePress. Beginning July 1, 2008, Rudy’s Dream and Laguna de Flamenco will no longer be available. As they say – out with the old, in with the new! Please stop by my shop and take a peek, and again, thanks for your interest in my beadwork. 😀
