McCausland, IA / October 1, 2012 – Peaceful River Trading Co. is hosting a gallery opening for their very own Sheila Bosworth and Kit Gleason. The event will take place Thursday, October 18th from 4pm - 7pm. "We opened this store to help feature creations from artisans all over our area, including our own. We've had so many questions on what we create, we thought it was time to showcase what we create as well," says Sheila Bosworth, Peaceful River Trading Co, co-owner. Kit and Sheila's featured artwork and crafts will include tile signs, glass etching, hand dyed scarves, decorated sleds, custom designed flip flops, koozies, t-shirts even floral arrangements.
