|Denny gave me a quick tour of his new location.
He’s got this Saguaro skeleton that’s been with him for years.
new location is HUGE! He’s been there for 6 months and it still smells
brand new. He’s got tons of glass on display, as well as finished
projects. I got the grand tour as soon as I arrived.
|Next to the front door of the store|
There’s plenty of room to walk around and everywhere you look there’s eye candy. The store is divided into areas for make and take fused glass pendants,
lampworking, stained glass, mosaic
and fused glass classes.
also got his very first stained glass piece that he made by teaching
from a book when he was 24…just a few years ago. He’s also got his very own Peter McGrain portrait looking over his precious.
Denny planned a full day with his Customer Appreciation Event occurring at the same time as the No days Road Show. The first 150 customers through the door got swag bags. There was a full demo schedule for glass cutting, the Morton System, bottle cutters, flameworking, foil repair, fusing ideas, programming your kiln, and of course, No Days adhesives!
|My No Days station all set up before I even got there!|
In addition to the demos, there was a make and take project area set up for micro mosaic pendants. Customers were invited to walk in anytime during the day and create Groutless Mosaic jewelry with millefiore, sparkly glass bits and resin.
|Denny getting everybody started on their make-and-take groutless mosaic pendants.|

We scheduled two sessions for walk in No Days projects. In the morning, we made small No Days Groutless mosaics using 5″ x 7″ mdf boards and scrap stained glass.
