News from HandMADE Montana

POLSON — Polson is happy to announce the introduction of First Friday events in downtown Polson beginning Friday, March 6. Participating stores and businesses welcome the community to shop local, score hot deals and visit with community artists and makers. 

HandMADE Montana is pleased to bring the talented author, illustrator, and maker, Nick Mask, to Polson for the March First Friday event on March 6, from 5 to 8 p.m.

Bozeman artist Mask grew up in Gainesville, Georgia and moved out west after graduating from college in 2003. He lives and works in his Bozeman studio, where he designs and builds unique home accents from reclaimed wood and other artwork. He is also the author/illustrator of the "Waffles the Adventure Cat" children’s book series. There are currently two books in the series, "Waffles the Cat" and "Waffles in Space." They follow Waffles as she explores her world and meets new friends. For a peek inside the books, please visit Both books are for children ages 3-6.

Mask will be giving multiple book readings at Cherry Valley Elementary earlier in the day, March 6. HandMADE Montana will donate copies of the series to the Cherry Valley Library so kiddos can enjoy "Waffles the Adventure Cat" again and again. Kiddos and families are welcome to come to the shop at 212 Main Street for an evening of fun. Take a picture in the "Waffles in Space" cut-out, chat more with the artist, and enjoy some yummy treats. Mask will also be available to answer questions on his other artistic endeavors. He has developed a line of upcycled and reclaimed wood pieces for the home, including key racks, coat racks, shelves and more.

Please stop in the shop, check out all the 70+ artists we have, enjoy a yummy treat, hang out, and have a little fun. We have something for everyone, and everything has a great story to be told.

For more information about the First Friday event, contact Dustin Kisler at the Perfect Shot in downtown Polson: 218 Main St., 406-883-2668.
