House of Ra - Cara

Interesting, high quality, unusual accessories for the interesting unique lady. My designs illustrate that the rough and unusual can be just as elegant as the highly polished stone. The bags capture a playful, bohemian spirit and are made of genuine leather. Everything is made from high quality stones and leather just for you in my Miami, FL studio. As a Dayton, OH native I'm excited to share my products with you at Not Your Mama's Craft Market.

Touch The Edge Studios - Anita Haines

My family and I are excited to be a part of the upcoming Not Your Mama’s Holiday Craft Market.
"Touch The Edge Studios" has come together as a true family effort of sharing our love of all things creative by using our artistic talents and gifts to inspire, encourage and enrich our lives as well as the lives of others.
It combines all of our family member’s creative endeavors; My "Stamp With Anita" part of the studio focuses on creating, teaching and selling hand stamped cards, papercrafts and products. Along with the creative efforts of the rest of the family we've added studio classes, mixed media art, painting, unique handcrafted and re-purposed wood and furniture items. The products we offer have evolved as each of us have grown artistically.
The appreciation and love of the visual arts, music, dance, written word and theatrical performance have always been a part of our family's life. It's brought much love, joy, friendship and even healing. Our desire is to offer beautiful inspiring pieces that bring joy and touch the lives of others in a special way. We would be honored to have one of our pieces find it's way into your home and look forward to seeing you at the show.
Blessings, The Haines Family

Chelsea - Glitteracy

Hey there!
First of all I'm so excited to be a part of Not Your Mama's Holiday Craft Market this year for the first time. Due to also being an elementary Art Teacher creating watercolors has become a hobby of mine to continue making art of my own. When decorating my own apartment, I began to think about what kinds of artwork I would want to hang that were special and also narrative.
My work consists of silhouettes of all kinds filled with watercolors left on their own to swirl and come together to create an image. Creating an abstract artwork held together with a single image is beautiful in its simplicity.
Recently, I have delved into creating artworks that show my love for my hometown in Columbus, Ohio! Born and raised here, I have always been drawn to showing love for my city and thought why not show that love visually for all the other CBUS lovers out there! I've gotten a lot of interest and am really taking off with new ideas as well as revisiting the same images again to paint them in a ever changing color schemes!
I can't wait to share my work with you over the Thanksgiving Break that is creeping up on us! Thank you for your time!
614 Love,
Chelsea

Helena Demacopoulos and Li Cai of Addie's Pup-Cessories

Hi! My name is Helena Demacopoulos and I’m the founder of Addie’s Pup-Cessories, a fun line of unique, hand-sewn pet accessories. I am 22 years old and a recent graduate of The Ohio State University, where I met my close friend and business partner, Li Cai. Also an animal lover, Li volunteered to assist me with sewing and has since become a core part of the business, specializing in production. Although Addie’s Pup-Cessories was launched very recently, we are very excited to grow and expand in the Columbus area and meet other pet parents who share our passion for animals.
Addie is my 4-year-old shih tzu and is the inspiration behind the business. Addie was adopted from the Franklin County Animal Shelter during my junior year at Ohio State and has become my closest friend. Li also has a pet - ​a rescue cat named Puddin, whom he acquired very recently. In honor of our furry best friends, we will be donating 10% of our earnings to the Franklin County Animal Shelter’s ‘Friends of the Shelter’ program to help the sick and injured shelter pets. To learn more about the program and how you can help the animals, please visit www.friendsoftheshelter.info for more information.
Addie’s Pup-Cessories specializes in hand-sewn pet products, including collars, leashes, harnesses, bandanas, ties, and more. We use quality materials and unique patterns to create fun, durable products that both you and your pet will love. We are happy to accept custom orders, and you can personalize any of our products by adding your pet’s name or some bling. Stop by to visit us at the show for an even bigger selection of pet accessories. We look forward to meeting you!

Pennant

Pennant collects used vinyl banners and retired signage to construct beautifully unique, bags and purses. We repurpose these materials and change them from something industrial and temporary into a useful and loved belonging.
Every bag is handmade and unique. We love experimenting and creating new uses for potential refuse. Vinyl is not an easy material to work with, but it is durable, tough, water resistant and an exciting challenge.
We have come up with several bag shapes, sizes and uses and are thinking about more every day.
