VENDOR FAMILY WELCOME - HOT ROCKS GLASS JEWELS

SUE - HOT ROCKS GLASS JEWELS

https://www.facebook.com/HotRocksGlassJewels
"Hello, I am Susan, designer of Hot Rocks Jewellery.
Creating and collecting have always been a part of my life! As a young girl, in London, England, I would collect and trade little trinkets such as shiny buttons, rhinestones, old coins and pretty beads, with my school friends. All my tiny treasures were kept in an old silver tin that was my most prized possession. 

That was obviously the start of what I now am passionate about! I am inspired by little vintage forgotten objects from another time, which I use to create one of a kind jewellery pieces with a history. I love repurposing pieces from the past into jewellery with a story to tell! 

I am blessed with four grown children, two beautiful grandchildren and a loving husband who supports and helps me on all my vintage searches and adventures!
I love creating jewellery, and I hope you enjoy what I design from my heart."

VENDOR FAMILY WELCOME - LAMB'S SOAPWORKS

                                           
                                         LARA - LAMB'S SOAPWORKS
                                     
                                               https://www.facebook.com/lambsoapworks

"My name is Lara Lamb. I am the owner/creator of Lamb’s Soapworks a Canadian artisanal soap and body care business located in Airdrie, Alberta.
With a previous career working in restaurant and commercial kitchens, crafting soap seemed like a natural progression. After that first batch of soap, there was no going back and Lamb's Soapworks was born from a desire to create beautiful natural hand-crafted soap and bath and body products I am proud of.
I love what I do and am inspired each and every day to create and infuse a little slice of joy into someone else's world!"

"Pleased to meet you, cool cats! Welcome to Trashtiques and Foxy Revival, our swell shops specializing in all things far-out, retro and vintage.

Think starbursts, rich turquoise, modern wood, and lots of silver. Just call us the ‘vintage-whisperers’ – you dig? Now kick off your alligator shoes, grab a mint julep and settle in.
