Comfort Kitchen opens tomorrow; Wine Exchange leaves city
Little Red Millinery will host an event to celebrate the launch of their hat-making business from 2 to 6 p.m. June 23 at Surrey Gardens at Skidmore College, 815 North Broadway. The event is free and open to the public.
Little Red Millinery is a new division of the Red Confetti Art Studio, which is owned and operated by local artist Caroline Blake at 153 Regent Street.
The event, which is called "Top It Off" will feature hat-making activities for children and adults, a silent auction to benefit local charities and a hat fashion show with music and choreography by the Tango Fusion Dance Company. The rain date is June 30.
Blake, a native of Belgium, launched the art studio on Regent Street last year, where she teaches art classes for children and adults. She will design one-of-a-kind hats for all occasions, following her grandmother who was a hat-maker in Brussels.
Blake uses new and recycled materials to create hats, and works with clients to personalize the hats to them. The hats range in price from $25 to $250, depending on the style, material and amount of time it takes to create it.
For more information, contact Blake at Caroline@redconfettiartstudio.com or 583-7111. Hats will also be available for purchase through Etsy.
The Saratoga Wine Exchange has moved to a new location in Ballston Lake, after spending a decade in Saratoga Springs and ultimately outgrowing the space. The store is now located in the New Hannaford Plaza at 43 Round Lake Road, off Northway exit 11. It's an expanded location and includes more parking than was available in the city. Wines are also available for shipping on the store's website.
