Here are a few of the artists & fine crafters you will be able to meet this weekend:

Jennifer Simmons: Coffee (Green Market)

First, we would like to introduce to you Jennifer Simmons. Jennifer’s product, tasty coffee, will be a part of our green market in the show. Jennifer and her husband, Mike, have researched how to make sure they had all the elements needed so that Java Planet could become certified Organic, and what regions produced the best tasting coffee.  They even researched how long coffee stays fresh to ensure the best possible coffee. You can learn more about their yummy product HERE.

Rasa Saldaitis: Oils & Acrylics

Next, we have Rasa Saldaitis. Rasa’s oil and acrylic paintings represent her love for color and the world around her. She feels that every artist dips his brush in his soul and paints his own nature into his paintings. Her work is breath-taking! You can view more of her work HERE.

Regina Boger: Jewelry

The final fine crafter we are going to share with you today is Regina Boger. First, Regina visualizes the finished piece, and then begins to make it come to life. She uses an assortment of semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls, and Swarovski Crystals. Her jewelry has a whimsical flair and is very unique! You can see more of her hand-made jewelry HERE.

You will be able to meet these fine crafters & artists mentioned above along with many more! Do not miss out on this great, FREE event!
