Artisan’s Trunk Show
Last Sunday I had the pleasure of attending the Artisan’s Trunk Show held at a fun little pub called the Higher Grounds in Hallowell, Maine.
The featured artists offered a great array of handmade items; ranging from all natural bath and body products to pottery to handmade cards and homemade jellies and chocolates.
The atmosphere was very cozy and fun, complete with live acoustic music and tasty bloody marys! The artwork and other handmade products, however, were the stars of the show. Sweet Mojo Apothecary, owned and operated by Jessica Moreau – Berry and Jolene Hoch, offers some of the most delicious all-natural sugar scrubs, hot oil hair treatments, body oils, perfumes and salt scrubs that you’ll find anywhere. It was nearly impossible to chose just one fragrance out of their impressive lineup of scents.
Another personal favorite of mine from the show was the unique handmade jewerly from Quench Metalworks, from China, Maine. Owner Jennifer Atkins Lisa creates amazing one-of-a-kind necklaces, rings, and earrings through a variety of metalsmithing techniques and materials.
Here’s a list of the extremely talented group from last week’s show. You can find them all on Facebook, and perhaps you’ll find a special gift for somebody on your holiday gift list! Enjoy!
