For one of a kind finds, the show offers luxurious yet eco-friendly, re-purposed cashmere mittens, felted wraps, and sparkly enameled earrings for the style conscious.

 

Some of the new vendors will be offering stainless steel sculptures and furniture, limited edition ”no-camera” prints, sailors’ valentines, fused glass bowls, and lamp worked jewelry. Each collector and customer can be assured that only the highest quality American made crafts have been selected for display.
