Laura Zindel.2Join us First Friday for the debut of Laura Zindel’s ceramics.  The show features handmade serving pieces as well as dishwasher safe mugs and sauce dishes.  All of Laura’a pieces combine her passion for ceramics and naturalist illustrations.  You’ll find owls, chickadees, nests, ferns and dragonflies in this mix.  We take custom orders for these pieces. Laura Zindel works together with her husband and a small group of artisans out of her studio in southern Vermont.

I’m Back!

IMG_3639It is a pleasure to stand once again on Cushman Street.  The construction is finished and I’ve had a complete make-over as has the store sign.  Our building is freshly painted and our flowers are flourishing.  Be sure to be downtown for the Cushman Street Celebration on July 11th from 5-7 pm.  There’ll be fun, food and music.   What?  Did I hear someone say they are closing the street for this event?  Lol my Facebook fans!

My Name is Martha

IMG_2504My name is Martha and I stand by the entrance of If Only…a fine store greeting everyone who enters and those who pass on the street or sidewalk.
I’m on the street during the hours the store is open, rain or shine, 90 degrees or 45 below zero.  I’ve become a Fairbanks icon!  In 2006, I received the Visitor Ambassador of the Year Golden Heart Award from the Fairbanks Downtown Association.  I see and hear a lot, and people from all over the world have their photo taken with me.
