Jacie Herbison of the Arrowsmith Potters Guild shows off some of the 19 mugs that will be given away this February. The contest is run in conjunction with Bradley’s Bistro in Parksville.

Sweet opportunity for pottery lovers in Parksville

Nineteen chances to win handmade mugs at Bradley's Bistro this Feb; also, 10% sweetheart sale at Station Gallery all month

The Arrowsmith Potters Guild and Bradley’s Bistro in Parksville are once again joining forces to spread the love of art this February. On each week day of the month, the staff at Bradley’s will draw the name of someone to win a pottery mug created by members of the Guild.

“You could win a piece of art every day,” said Guild member Jacie Herbison of what the prize offers.

“Customers got so excited about it,” said Lori Bradley, co-owner of Bradley’s Bistro of last year’s giveaway. “I think it’s very generous of them.”

To enter the draw, simply fill out the ballot you’ll receive with any purchase at Bradley’s Bistro and place in the draw box. Winners will be contacted to pick up a voucher from the bistro, which they would then take to the Station Gallery by Mar. 15 and exchange it for their prize.

Herbison said that each winner will get to choose his or her mug, and that many of the prizes will be decorated with Valentine motifs.

“Mugs are really personal,” she said, adding that potters “love” the fact their works are handled and appreciated every day by the mug owner.

The giveaway celebrates the start of the 2015 season for Guild. They will open the Station Gallery  on Feb. 1 with a month-long 10% off sale.
