Yes and Yes! My daughter joins my business as an apprentice metal and wax artist and son who fabricates my custom metal lampshades! I studied with a metalsmith for five years while working for the 3M company knowing I could retire at an early age! Love being able to use my right brain creating custom pieces of jewelry!

Rare-Creations Rare Creations by S & R- Booth #508

Artisan Product Description

 Roxanna Ruth began the creation of her Vintage Santas in 2000, with the idea of the base of the Santa made of leftover Beetle Logs from the log home they built and owned in Iowa. Her husband Sid handcrafts the stands on cedar/cherry/walnut and Roxanna creates from there. Each Vintage Santa reflects the love and tenderness of the Spirit of Christmas. These kind-spirited Santas are dressed in authentic and faux furs with faces of ceramic and surrounded by lovely handmade and/or glass ornaments. They will delight children and adults alike! Roxanna designs an average of 100 Vintage Santas per year along with special requests from client’s own furs with their requested color décor and theme. She has added Tree Topper/Table Topper Santas to her 2018 Collection.

Is your product handmade by you?
Handmade by me. One of a kind and no two are alike. Quality authentic fur/faux fur & exceptional décor. They are constructed on sturdy wood bases and easy to transport

Little Bug Baby Designs- Booth #610

Artisan Product Description
Handmade blankets specially designed for babies and toddlers. We also make bibs, burp cloths, shirts, and hair accessories.

Is your product handmade by you?
Yes, I make everything by hand. I pick out the fabric and design the products myself.
We go through a lot of fabrics to find the best ones by looking at patterns and feeling how soft they will be on baby's skin. We only pick the ones we would wrap around our children.
The material we use is called minky. This is a high quality material that is really soft for anyone to snuggle.
