Bunny & John Switzenberg : Candles & Wax

First, we would like to introduce to you Bunny & John Switzenberg. Bunny & John keep their 21 hives at Bunny’s sister, Sandy and brother-in-law, Francis’ 250 acre farm in Georgetown, Delaware. The wax from the hives goes into making their ornaments and candles. How unique! You can learn more about their product HERE.

Patti Van Tonder : Hair Accessories

Next, we would like to introduce to you Patti Van Tonder. Patti is dedicated to producing the most beautiful and durable pieces of hair jewelry for the most beautiful women of the world. It’s the only hair accessory that will stay in every hair type! You can learn more about Patti’s work HERE.

Candy Wilson : Mats & Frames

The final crafter we would like to introduce to you is Candy Wilson. Candy was a professional artist who worked part-time as a framer. Later, this led to a full-blown business where Candy went to art and craft festivals to sell the custom frames and mats. They have a unique selection that you can see HERE.

Don’t miss you chance to meet the artists listed above along with 150 other fine crafters from around the state of Florida and across the United States!
