Through the stained glass

While you’re dropping in at L&L Consignment, you might as well enhance the experience by taking a look at one of its more established neighbors. And if you’ve followed my suggestion to park behind the Post Office Pub, you’re going to be right there anyway.

I’m talking, of course, about Our Glass Studio at 40 N. Main St., which is another one of those places that I’ve glanced at while driving by, thought “hey, that looks interesting” and never returned to visit.

It’s really lovely, a jewel of a little craft studio filled with products both big and small that were hand-crafted by local artisans. While I was there, they were in the middle of a stained glass class.

I didn’t get too in-your-face with the class, because who wants to shoot off a flash in the face of someone working with glass? They offer several six week classes in stained glass using the copper foil method. One class member said she happily drives here from Concord just for the classes.

Our Glass also carries supplies for people who work with glass as a hobby. But here’s the real reason why you should take a look:

They have really pretty things.

Really, really pretty things.

You can even wear their pretty things.

And these I totally loved — they’re vodka bottles, melted and re-formed into cheese trays. I don’t even want to know how it’s done. It’s clever and would make for an interesting gift.

They also offer custom glass designs, everything from lamps to windows and cabinet doors.
