From kimono style art smocks for your ‘Messy Kid’ to a new runway style fashioned rain hat by ‘Baroness Ashley Hats’, you will find almost everything you need to fill your holiday shopping list!
Each year Nicci Battilana, Artist & Market Organizer, does everything she can to bring you high quality, unique handmade items at reasonable prices.
When you think of all the hard work and design planning each vendor has put into bringing forth these ‘Creative Finds’, you will be pleasantly surprised by the prices. The “Creative Finds’ vendors have been planning their products and booth space for the past six months. Once again, it will be an experience for the senses!
You may recall Rachel of Rachies Yum Yums, who we had as last years young entrepreneur of the show. This year, we have Taylor Lanthier, who was one of our wonderful volunteers back in 2007. She has been busy learning crafts and creating her very own line of “Decadent Doggie Desserts”, so that she may introduce you to her line of “Pixie Artist Creations”.
She is very proud of what she has accomplished this year, as well she should be. Her ‘Decadent Doggie Desserts’ were even sampled by all of her family, both canine and human alike. A thumbs up all around!
Other products at the Creative Finds Market include silk scarves, laser crafted pens from the fallen trees of Stanley Park, wood turning, painting on a wide variety of mediums, greeting cards, photography, soaps, buttons, and so on.
The Artists of these creations includes names such as Susan Keetley, Groovy Glass Girl, Violette Clark, Greg Parsons, Uli Ross, Jeff Maihara and many many more. You must come out and see all 30 of them and their work for yourself.
