Although her furniture restoration project looks bigger than she is, Burke resident Liz Shaw isn’t afraid of a banker’s bookcase as she gives it a fresh coat of Fusion Mineral Paint in a shade of gray with a cute name called “Little Lamb.” Shaw and her business partner Kathy Jasien of Clifton spend a muggy Sunday afternoon June 10 getting ready for their summer sizzler furniture and home accessory sale June 22 and 23. “We’ll do anything to bring quality pieces to our clientele,” quips Shaw, “or justify a nice, cold glass of wine.” The Clifton Barn sale features the work of local artists Friday evening from 5-8 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 7421 Dunquin Court in Clifton’s Glencairn neighborhood off Kincheloe Road. The scenic drive alone is well worth the trip. Pictures of this weekend’s keepsakes can be seen online at facebook.com/poppysquare.
