2017 Vendor Sponsors: Absolems Garden and Drigie Jewelry

Absolems Garden 

"We sell costume jewelry and accessories. Both handmade and resale. Necklaces, chokers, rings, scarves, bracelets, anklets. We have everything time traveling Victorians need to stay fashionable. "

Drigie Jewelry 
Drigie Industrial Jewelry is perfectly unique- steam punk (or Ragtime) necklaces and earrings (bracelets coming soon), which are affordable for every one. I enjoy combining different colored metals with whimsical charms and pendants, when each piece comes together it is very satisfying, almost like solving a puzzle.

We appreciate every vendor that chooses to pitch in with a little something extra as a sponsor! Be certain to drop by their booths and give them a visit this Saturday!

More updates will appear as we finalize information and get the information rolled out. Also, vendor applications are still being accepted for anyone who hasn't sent one in yet. We generally accept up to last minute vendors, as long as they make an effort to contact us first so we know you are coming.

We are also open still to the idea of buskers if anyone wishes to busk at the event, and to the idea of volunteers wishing to run an activity they have in mind.  Just drop us an e-mail and run your ideas by us!
