Two Classics on Roanoke City Market

Is Dana prettier than her work? Yep, I'd say, but the work's damn fine, too.

My buddies Dana James and Dan Williams sell on weekends on City Market. Dana sells her stained glass and small paintings (and has been doing so for 20 years or so) and Dan sells the instruments he makes. Dan's from North Carolina; Dana lives at Wasena Park.

Both are lovely people and give the market some of its glisten. I have bought work from both of them (Dana's Celtic cross hangs in my dining room and Dan's instruments--four of them--are with my son's family in Spain).

Dan Williams (right) sells his hand-made instruments.
