We’ve blogged about the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar in the past. What we neglected to include was the fact that one of our Texas Bed and Breakfast innkeepers is an acclaimed artist who has had a booth at the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar for years.
Wayne and Kathy Rossi run the Star House Bed and Breakfast in Dripping Springs. In addition to being an innkeeper, Wayne is also an experienced metal sculptor; for more than 20 years, he has created his art at his studio, D.S. Iron Works, which is on the grounds of the Star House Texas Bed and Breakfast. Guests are invited to visit the studio and watch him at work.
Wayne and D.S. Iron Works have been featured on the Diane Sawyer Nightly News Segment on “Made In America“. Wayne hand-cuts his metal, using only his hands (not computers) to free-draw and cut each and every part of his artwork. While Wayne does import some gift items from other countries for the large Armadillo Show, the rest of the year he sells only items made 100% in America.
D.S. Iron Works is offering a $30.00 booth credit for potential Texas Bed and Breakfast customers who attend the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar and stop by the D.S. Iron Works booth. Wayne will include a $2.00 nail puzzle in each Texas Bed and Breakfast swag bag, as well.
The Armadillo Christmas Bazaar takes place each year at the Palmer Events Center in Austin, Texas. It is more than just a craft show; it features an almost non-stop line-up of live music, and great food to boot. It is a fantastic place to pick up unique holiday gifts. It is also a fun experience.
The Armadillo Christmas Bazaar runs through December 24, 2011. Don’t miss it!
