You will find some beautiful basic white pieces for your home in her booth BUT you will also find great color!
 Linda likes to say 'beige is not a color'
 and I have to agree with her.Darlah won't sell her tiny dress forms, (I can't blame her) they are perfect for diplaying her fantastic jewelry.
 I really would like to get my hands on one of those forms and doll it up though! wouldn't a tiny vintage prom dress on one of those be great!Linda Morrow's mosaics and vintage finds. I love the fish!Hand felted nativity by Marion Buzzbee.
 Marion and Nicky Glade share a booth and make all kinds of felted mermaids, seahorses and other seashell crown with butterflies and vintage jewels.
Be sure to come see us on the 12TH and 13TH we are making all kinds of new must have gifts and goodies to give and keep!
