A good day at the Dumont Oktoberfest Street Fair

Five years ago today, Eric and I met on a Bicycle Touring Club of North Jersey bike ride!  We celebrated by setting up our booth and greeting visitors interested in Boehm Stained Glass Studio.  We had a wonderful day.  Thanks to everybody we met, and welcome to all who are checking out our blog for the first time!

Feel free to check out the "Labels" or "Projects" on the right side, pick a project, and watch it develop from initial design through the installation.  We enjoy every step of the process .. We look forward to building a window for you.  Call us at 201-600-1616 or send an email through this blog.  Thank you.

Here are some photos of the day ..
For this show, I had fun making a mini version of my Victorian Tulip window as a demonstration.  This little one is only 8-1/2" wide .. The original is 22".  As a demo, I completed the right side only and applied black patina to the front and left the back silver.  The manila folder pattern is on the left and the original pattern is underneath. (Click on any photo to enlarge).
Here's the "big Victorian Tulip" next to the "little Victorian Tulip".
For this show, we added some autumnal fabric table cloths which we think warmed up our booth ... and we added some Fall foliage.
Here's a video of our booth!  Background music is by the Notorious Baker Brothers who were performing across the street.  Click here to hear more.   


Still lovebirds, five years later.  Thanks to my dear husband Eric, for always supporting my creative endeavors!

Boehm Stained Glass Studio will have a booth at the Dumont Oktoberfest Street Fair this Saturday, 10:00 - 5:00.  We don't yet have our space assignment, but you'll find us somewhere between East Madison and West Shore.
We'll bring the Victorian Tulip, our Bear, and the Chickadees and Wisteria windows with us .. and maybe even a "demo" window in progress.  Stop by and say hello!  Visit our website to see our work .. Click here.

Allendale Festival Day & Car Show a success!

Well, we started the day a bit nervously with a healthy downpour right as the festival began .. but once the clouds cleared an hour or so later, the crowds came out in force.  We had a great day.

Special thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth to compliment our work or to ask questions about a repair to a lamp or stained glass panel, or to ask questions about having a custom window made.  Here are a few photos from the day:  (Click on any photo to enlarge).
Our booth on West Allendale Avenue
This was only our second show, the first with our new canopy and adjustable height 6' table.  We were very pleased that the canopy kept us dry during the rain at the start of the day.
We brought three of our windows with us .. The Victorian Tulip (not pictured here), the Wisteria and Chickadees, and the Bear (our trademark).  All of these and more can be seen on the BSGS website .. click here.  We also made some soldered glass refrigerator magnets which went over pretty well.  We've got plenty to spare for next time, too.  (We made a lot!).
New to my blog?  To see a particular window being built, from design through installation, look for the "Labels" or "Projects" listed in the right hand column, toward the bottom.  Click on any "Project" and see, in reverse order, the entire process, including photos, narratives, and tips.

My work bench now is ready for your repair or your custom window.  Thanks again for visiting, chatting, and picking up a business card.  I look forward to hearing from you!   201-600-1616 or email.
