witch-balls Pairpoint Witch Balls

Dating back to the 18th Century, hollow glass balls have been hung to ward off witch’s spells and evil spirits.  Legend has it that the evil spirit is attracted to these colorful balls, pulled inside, and trapped within the glass web protecting the home from harm.  It is told on Cape Cod that fishermen have used these mesmerizing balls in their nets to ward off evil spirits on the high seas.  Each Pairpoint Witch Ball is individually made and colored.

2011-student-thank-you-letter Who says people don’t send hand-written notes anymore?  This letter came from a student who visited us last month.  It doesn’t appear to be part of a class project as it’s the only one we’ve received recently.

Nice to know there are still those out there who have classic good manners.
