Artists and potters Sarah and Sam Costanzo, owners of Mosquito Mud Pottery in West Palm Beach, are seeing their dream of owning a successful, family-owned business come to life. A few years ago, however, they would never have guessed this would one day be their dream. The Connecticut natives moved to West Palm Beach to attend college together. (At the time, they were not yet married.) During school, they both studied missions. An art minor, Sam casually took art classes, which is where he was introduced to pottery. Little did either of them realize that in a few short years they would be running one of the fastest-growing pottery businesses in South Florida.Details
The United States was a nation built from the ground up. It began taking shape in the latter half of the 18th century. This is when people started pursuing missions that would create a great society. As a result, 12 hour work days became the backbone of American spirit.
This dedication and determination gained recognition in the late 19th century. Citizens of the United States started celebrating Labor Day in 1882. The idea was adopted from Canada. The North American neighbor began celebrating Labour Day a decade prior.
Until present day, the United States has been consistent in honoring social and economic achievements on the first Monday in September. Most businesses are closed on this day and hardworking American citizens are offered a long weekend. During this time, barbecues and festive parties are the norm. In fact, the United States celebrates Labor Day with the same spirit that fills Fourth of July. www.segmation.comDetails
