It’s Market Time! October 21, 2016

Filed under: Archives — Fresh Baked Designs @ 2:39 pm

This Holiday Market is one of the few that I participate in each year.  Cannot believe that this will be the eighth year!  It has certainly grown and refined into one of the finest in our downtown area.  Over thirty vendors who have been carefully vetted for quality goods….with five non-profits like the Tomorrow Project which benefits  women recovering from domestic abuse and their children.  They make a very tasty assortment of bean soup mixes, packaged in large mason jars that are wonderful for gifts.  I can attest that all are delicious! The market takes place at our historic 100 year old church.  And being a church event, there will be delicious homemade lunch items and a glorious bake sale.  Our church ladies love to bake!  If any of you are in the San Diego County area, you are cordially invited to attend.  I’d love to meet you!


And if you live in Kalamazoo or Timbuktu and see something you’d like, just comment and I’ll get back to you about a purchase through Paypal.  I am very accommodating no matter where you are!



So…I continue to work on new and interesting pieces

to offer at this year’s event.

Lots of earrings, of course…






Some sweet necklaces…this one has a faceted blue topaz link.

In oxidized sterling silver.



And then, back to the scene of the crime…

A few weeks ago, I shared my tragic experience with lost waxed casting.  Remember?  The only survivor was this sterling sand dollar.  Now it’s all polished up and showing off on a necklace of micro faceted Iolite beads.



I still have a lot I want to do, but I’m getting there.
