Venue hosts Anika & Joshua Colvin, Old Salt Merchants in December

Once upon a time a West Coast waterman meets a Midwestern girl and they fall in love. She designs and bakes. He surfs and sails. Together they decided to start an old-fashioned nautical provisions company, selling the kinds of traded goods one might have found in port a century ago: tea, salt and sugar, but with bold flavors inspired by cocktails, trade routes and pipe tobacco.

Now they live a happy life in surrounded by water and trees in the Victorian seaport of Port Townsend, Washington, raising two small children and running two nautical businesses. Consistent with their lifestyle vision, Old Salt Merchants hearkens back to a simpler time and quality natural ingredients.

Venue is delighted to introduce our customers to Old Salt Merchants products this holiday season including salts, sugar and tea in individual and gift packaged sets.

Factory vs Academy Reprises the Tell-Tale Heart In December

"...and the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
on the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
and his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
and the lamp-light o'er him streaming
throws his shadow on the floor;
and my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor"
shall be lifted - Nevermore!

Here is a show dedicated to Edgar Allan Poe's classic horror tale. Featuring paintings and assemblages by local legend Joe Reno and papier mache object's d'art by Michael Matewauk.

Factory vs. Academy is a series of collaborations between artists and writers. Exhibitions revolve around a theme and feature the work of local artists and indie authors.
