Virginia Carter

Walpole Mountain View Winery

Virgina Carter started making wine after deciding to purchase a piece of property she felt deserved a purpose. Virginia had no experience with owning or running a vineyard but she soon became an expert after reading many books and meetings with fellow vintners. In the years to come she watched her home to turn into a beautiful flourishing vineyard and now offers tastings every weekend during the warmer months.

 
 

Marcia Passos-Duffy

Geo-Graphic Gems

Marcia discovered the technique to transform old National Geographic magazines into works of art by accident. The process dissolves ink on magazine pages that are printed on clay-based paper, creating brilliant abstract designs. She was inspired by this idea and decided to use her long time collection of National Geographic magazines as a base for vibrant pieces of jewelry. After a period of trial and error Marcia now creates many different types of jewelry, attends craft shows, and sell through different retail stores including ours.
