This Week's Featured Vendors
EPPERSON STUDIO by Rodney Epperson — Current Calhoun Parent

MADE FROM HAVEN by Melissa Honore — Current Calhoun Parent
About You: I am a wife, mother of two and an entrepreneur. I started making my cookies as a hobby for my family, as they all love cookies. My first several attempts were a disaster but I never gave up until I perfected them. After bringing them to work and being encouraged by my husband and good friend, I started my own business that I devote my attention to full time.
Creative Vision: Dessert is a comfort food and people deserve to enjoy it with a smile. My vision is to spread that with my wholesome, soft baked cookies that will leave them craving for more.
Made from Heaven will offer a 10% discount during the Winter Artists and Creatives Fair, as well as raffling off 12 cookies!
AMY GOLDIN ART by Amy Goldin — Alumni class of 1975
About You: Starting out as a weaver and doll-maker in the 1980s, Amy Goldin '75 has explored many paths along the way to her current engagement with polymer clay. She has clad river rocks in polymer clay veneers, exhibited them in outdoor settings, and written a book ‘Flowstones’ about her process and philosophy.
Creative Vision: When making art, I allow chance and nature to inform my work. Rather than presume that I can have complete command over the finished piece, I let the materials express themselves, constructing by hand and feeling my way along. As in life, I am immersed in the process but not completely in control of the result.
Amy Goldin Art raffle off a polymer clay cabochon bracelet and a pair of salt and pepper shakers embellished with polymer clay!
MINIMA JEWELRY BROOKLYN by Masae Ishihara
About You: Making beautiful creations with my hands has always been my thing. I make jewelry for everyday wear using carefully selected materials. I believe in the beauty of originality and authenticity. That makes all of us perfectly beautiful. NYC is a beautiful, diverse city. Our choices show who we are.
Creative Vision: We reflect nature as we all have our unique looks, organic shapes and textures. I think the jewelry that we choose to wear on our skin should also reflect our originality.
Minima Jewelry Brooklyn will offer a 10% discount during the Winter Artists and Creatives Fair, as well as raffling off a puzzle piece silver necklace!
NLUMEC by Camilla Navas
About You: Camila is a multidisciplinary artist and designer, who grew up in San Francisco and completed her undergraduate studies at Hunter College in New York City. She has worked at such respected institutions as the Auckland Art Gallery, New Zealand’s most revered museum, and was able to expand on her understanding of abstraction and creation. Nlumec’s concept originated out of a desire to create ambiance and light for one’s experience.
Description of Goods: Made from non- toxic, 100% pure Beeswax candles. Paraffin-free and soot-free. Our candles uplift and bring light to any space. There is beauty in the erasure of the process and the consumption of our candles.
