Tory Johnson - My Rusted Roots

I love metal in almost any form and try to repurpose found items in my work as much as possible. I am a hobby welder in the warmer months and a self-taught silversmith the rest of the year. I use mostly copper and brass in my jewelry and try to create unique items that you won't typically see on everyone else. My yard art ranges from small plant stakes to giant sunflowers for your garden. The more rust the better!

I am a crafter with a craft room that is overflowing. For this show I have a booth called "Craft Room Clear Out". I am organizing and simplifying my craft room. My loss is your gain! I will have yards and yards of awesome fabric, tons of trims, buttons galore, jewelry parts, collage items, and many vintage craft supplies at below retail prices. If something can be made of it, I probably have it. Come and get some terrific craft supplies and start your own new hobby! I will also have "fortune" and quote magnets. Great for yourself or as a small, fun gift!

Suzanne Holifield - Sorry Clementine

I make women’s clothing that includes shirts, skirts, dresses, hoodies, and outerwear. My designs are exclusive, meaning they are either one of a kind or a very limited size run. Each garment that I make is an original from the beginning concept, sourcing raw materials, the design, and it’s final construction. My favorite material to work with is super soft, stretchy, comfortable knits.

Dad and daughter Cal and Susan Workman love to make things. And not just anything, but functional and special pieces that honor quality over quantity.

Each metal piece is hand forged in Cal's Utah County workshop using blacksmithing—were talking fire, anvils, hammers and muscle. We're pleased to bring you a very personal items where each hammer mark formed these handsome pieces.

All WORKMAN MADE items honor the tradition of useful, local, handcrafted items that will last a lifetime.

Sterling Larsen - Brenster Occasions

All Brenster Occasions products are lovingly crafted by a furloughed Washington bureaucrat. In my newly-found spare time post-sequestation, I've fashioned everything from Gucci gift bags to Toyko subway maps into one-of a kind journals and sketchbooks. I believe everyday is an occasion and like making recycled cards that are simply un-throw-away-able. While stationery is my forte, don't be surprised if I throw in some party favors and trimmings, cuz life can always use a bit of bling.

Rachael Skidmore - Ande Vintage

Hello. I'm Rachael. I adore, collect, and sell vintage and antiques. My niche is vintage clothing specifically from the 1940's-1960's. I love that each item that has been preserved is pre-loved and has a story behind it. Vintage dresses are usually modest and well-made, which can be quite hard to find these days at a decent price! All items affordable and lovable. I also make a few upcycled items when I am not on the treasure hunt for more vintage goodies. I can't wait to share all the wonderful items with you!

Rachel Lewis - Nonpareil Home

I make throw pillow covers and other home décor items to add the finishing touch in your wonderful home! I seek out one of a kind, high-quality fabrics for my pillows and include an invisible zipper on each cover for easy removal. I also stencil pillow covers with my own illustrations or hand-dye them to create ombre and dip-dyed styles. Throw pillows are such an easy and inexpensive way to change up the style in a room, and my pillow covers are sure to help complete your unique décor!

Nikki Jackson - Crimson Digit

I make stained glass home decor and things you can wear. I like to find unusual pieces of glass-glass with good texture and color that makes each piece unique.

Jessica Roberts - Quilted Polka Dot

I love the feeling I get when I'm surrounded by all things handmade. Ever since I can remember I have loved creating things - knowing that creation didn't exist before I made it.

My creative style definitely includes the look and feel of all things vintage and old ... and giving new things that old feel.

I specialize in: * home decor - wreaths, banners, upholstered stools, jewelry boards, and kitchen towels. * party design - banners, cake toppers, cupcake picks, centerpieces ... anything to throw the perfect party (especially mustache parties) * baby comforts - car seat canopies, minky cuddle blankets, travel wipe cases, burp cloths, and binky clips. * bridal - photo props, centerpieces, banners, reception decor, and gifts.

I have two busy little kids and love being a stay-at-home mom, singing, reading, quilting, scrapbooking, and baking.
