Friday, Feb. 3rd event

The community of Watershed Books and LakeWorks at 305 N. Main St. in Lakeport invites everyone to celebrate the lift off of local musician Dennis Purcell’s latest album “Foggy Dew” during February’s 1st Friday. This month sing along and tap your foot to Dennis’ guitar and voice, enjoy refreshments and good conversation. Watershed Books and LakeWorks along with the Main Street Gallery are open late [from 5:00 until 7:00pm] on the first Friday of every month to celebrate local artists, authors, crafters, and community.

Calling All Artists and Craftspeople!!

Lakeport, CA…Lake Works and Thrive Lake County are looking for Lake County Makers of Crafts and Useful Product to submit an application for their creations to be sold at a “Lake Made” retail shop opening in Lakeport this fall.

“We’re looking for quality products of interest to both Lake County residents and visitors alike.” says Cheri Holden, creator of LakeWorks. “There are many fine crafters, artists, and home product makers in our county who could benefit from exposure in our retail space. Makers will be paid a commission on sales. This commission goes up in their favor the more help they provide in supporting the retail space. We’re especially looking right now for an entrepreneur/maker willing to share the risk by performing the Shop Manager role in our project.

Carol Cole-Lewis, Thrive Lake County coordinator explained Thrive Lake County’s role in this project. “We’re coordinating what may be a five-county effort to create a “North Bay Made” brand. This would give even more exposure to a broader market for Lake County crafters to sell their wares. The “Lake Made” retail space in Lakeport is the first step in the process.

Cole-Lewis continued, “The space will be somewhat modeled on the Share Exchange Buy Local retail space in Santa Rosa, CA. The Share Exchange has generously offered documentation and planning which will shorten our time for creating the Lake Made retail space dramatically.”

Makers interested in having their products evaluated are asked to email their contact information, a picture of their wares and a product description to Holden at
Both LakeWorks and Thrive Lake County are located at 307 N. Main Street in Lakeport next to Watershed Books. The Thrive Lake County office is open M-F from 10am to 1pm. Thrive Lake County can be found on the internet at .
