Just found a really cool local woodsmith who makes bottles openers from reclaimed wood. Saw this in a local publication called Distinction in the Tidewater area. Here’s his Facebook page. Hope you guys displays his products would love to see them for sell at our local Virginia Beach West Elm store. Plus I work there. Cheers

I’m a Virginia Beach artist specializing in creative contemporary objects for the home. My work includes handmade, affordable, one-of-a-kind sculptures, vessels, and clocks.  A longtime resident of the area, I exhibit locally at Stravitz Gallery in Virginia Beach and Blue Skies Gallery in Hampton.  My experience includes many years on the art faculty of Virginia Wesleyan College and Virginia Commonwealth University. With a home studio near Town Center, I could easily show you my work in person or through a few email images that I think would be a fine addition to West Elm and the local community.
