All kinds of new arrivals to inspire and excite today!

Right before ArtWalk, Reisa Peters, brought in several new mini art canvases.  5x7 art pieces perfect for gift giving and for that little space on your desk that needs a personal touch.  $17 each for these mini works of art!

Reisa's Mini Art

Rebecca Sower has been at work on her booth again. She actually hopped over to a larger space, which is giving her tons more room to spread out and expand her offerings.  Like these mini ephemera kits.  While she still have the larger kits full of vintage papers for all kinds of mixed media projects, now she has put together these kits that just beg for your attention and creativity!

Love these new spiral rings in Appealing Jewelry Designs.  They are beautiful AND fun!  And a great gift idea at only $7 for the color glass ring, and $38 for the special tiger eye and 14k gold fill ring. 


Curious CasesHere are a few new suitcases from Curious Cases.  These new one of a kind travel suitcases have so many purposes – not just limited to …well…being used as a SUITCASE!

The train size cases are $40 and the medium traveler size is $50.  The proceeds from suitcases sales will assist the owner of Curious Cases to fund her mission trip to Africa this fall. 




Magnets by Sally

These magnets by Sally are a fun gift item. At $2 each, you can get all kinds of different designs without breaking the budget and have a fun way to display the artwork of your kids on the refrigerator!

Sorry the picture is so bad, hard to get them  with their reflective nature – come see with your own eyes, you will love them!



And the wonderful Jodi has added more items to her product line of all natural bath and body items.  Shampoo & Conditioner are here now.  As are foot spray and deodorant sprays.  You won’t believe her prices at $2. for foot spray and $2.50 for the deodorant and hair care items!  Everyone can afford to go natural at these prices!


More to come as our newest vendors are adding to their booth as I type this blog!!

See you downtown!
