We are so very excited about this coming Sunday's big CRAFTOPIA event and we hope you are, too! As always, we will be bringing you lots of culinary delights to enjoy before, during or after you shop.

Enjoy Steve Demeter's amazing locally roasted coffee, the decadence of Moondust Macarons and Sweet Lydia's sinful treats, all the delicious varieties of Purple Pear's Pecans, the savory delights of Ebisu's Japanese cuisine and the classic flavor of Tina's Jamaican cooking.

Bold & Beautiful

Yasmin Kuhn’s jewelry is simple and elegant, exhibiting vivid use of shape, color and materials. All of her pieces can be worn casually, but even the moderately priced pieces offer the look of a refined, higher-end line. Yasmin works in silver as well as glass, rubber, leather, Lucite and shell. Her pieces range from light and delicate to deliberate and bold, all exquisitely crafted. Her work mirrors her personality, playful yet sophisticated.

VooDoo that You Do

Chris Larivee's owls are sparkly, disco, funky - anything but boring! Hoot! Hoot!

Upper Glass

Suzanne Tanner's hand-blown glass pieces are indeed candy for the eyes!

Mod Broad

"I feel most at home when I am surrounded by wild and wonderful color combinations. A quilter at heart, I love tying together all the little details that make a bag both functional and beautiful. Inspired by 60's design, I always add colorful linings to my products. Just like catching a glimpse of a bright lining on a sedate coat, I think there is tremendous delight in opening a bag that is as beautiful inside as it is out."
