Moxie Craft Fest • Downtown Brunswick • Nov 7th

We are excited to be joining the FIRST Moxie craft fest on November 7, 2015

The Moxie website says this about their venture:

We are a group of makers committed to bringing a fresh, eclectic vibe to the Golden Isles through handmade goods crafted by local artisans.

This market will take place in downtown Brunswick, just a few blocks down from the location of a major motion picture site.  The Warner Brothers film, Live By Night is directed and stars Ben Affleck.

Our downtown looks like Disney came and set up shop, they’ve built onto many building and added front awnings and porches. The story is that the set will be removed when filming is over.

There will be live music, fun people and unique wares!

Because so many of our items are specific to events and personalization, we’ve not done many markets. We’re excited as it’s spurred us on to create new and useful goods!

Maybe we’ll see you there!

 

Faithworks of Southeast Georgia

cheese_board_(8_of_15)We recently had the opportunity to partner with FaithWorks of Southeast Georgia, a local ministry that is a hybrid of outreaches, serving as a community charity, food bank, homeless shelter, cancer care and pastoral care center.

The chance to create something new for the auction produced one of our favorite items to date: a cheese board and matching cheese spreader made out of reclaimed heart of pine from Athens, Georgia.

During the event FaithWork’s founder, Wright Culpepper, described one of their more creative fundraising avenues: textile recycling. Have you ever heard of it? He explained, “There is nothing wasted – everything has a purpose.” The ministry has installed textile receiving boxes around town and collect any fabric or textiles that are discarded. Next, they load a truck to take down to Tallahassee where the textile is received for a money exchange, giving faith works a sum of money to reinvest in their ministry.

We were particularly excited about this since we’d created a repurposed dining item for the auction!

Have a HOPE-filled day!
