Saturday evening proved to be a big deal for Coventry Creations. Jacki Smith and Patty Shaw who are in Denver for INATS (International New Age Trade Show) received two prestigious COVR awards. For those not in the know, COVR Awards are presented by the Coalition of Visionary Resources who selects winners for the best products in the metaphysical industry.
Of course, we knew that Jacki was nominated but the competition for the magic/shamanism category was very stiff. On Keep it Magic, Jacki (being quite humble) emphasized being a finalist. However, on Saturday Evening the winner was chosen, and Jacki walked away with the award for her #1 Bestselling Book, “Coventry Magic,” which was published by Red Wheel/Weiser.
What came as a surprise is that Coventry Creations was up for an award for Vendor of the Year. I can honestly say that Jacki (who I talk several times a day almost daily) never mentioned the award to me, nor did Patty Shaw. Believe me, if anyone would have known they were nominated for this award (besides Jacki and Patty’s husbands) it would be me. Needless to say, we were all quite shocked when the wonder twins walked away with the award.
It is with the deepest respect, love, and affection that I can congratulate both of these wonderful ladies. Jacki and Patty work tirelessly to produce the best magical products in the industry, and it is an honor to be part of the Coventry Creations family.
