I was saddened to learn that John, who ran the Ceramic Greenhouse here in Winnipeg, and who offered great discounted prices to his customers, sold his business to a retailer in Virden. However, all is not lost. John is still interested in continuing some aspects of his former business, but he cannot do it alone and is interested in finding a partner here in Winnipeg. He writes:
"if there is someone out there who is interested in going into the glaze business, I have already made connections outside of the province and can bring in the glazes at a very competitive price. I would be prepared to invest some money and time into this venture. The ideal person would be someone who is in some aspect of the clay business and might have some space to spare. They can also benefit from my years of experience.....I could put in 2 days a week, nothing physical though. (John is a senior citizen)

Do you think there is someone out there who might be interested?"

Anyone interested can get in touch with John at gandjs@mts.net.
