summer at The Showroom


The sun is shining through the window as we prepare to open The Showroom on this first day of summer vacation. A group of local teachers took a break from classroom clean up to enjoy burgers at Al’s Center Saloon next door while the guys at Moe Auction Service received fresh goods for the next sale across the street.

Al continues to bring in boxes of glass to unpack, and most recently pulled out very vintage pieces, made as a beginner during his college days. The vases offer a wonky charm and provide a contrast to the technical mastery of Al’s current work.


• A second story sign post is under construction – our banner is scheduled for installation next week.
• We’ll be open most summer Saturdays from 10am-3pm in addition to Fridays 3-8pm. We’ll also be open “by chance,” and when we say “by appointment” we mean it! Please feel free to message us via the Contact page to arrange a showing that meets your availability.
• We’re scheduling events through the summer – find updates here on the website.
In the meantime, mark your calendars for
