67 days and counting...

Toni Roper at 2007 Crafty Chicks sale

Last year was Toni's first year with the Chicks.  She makes delicious dip and cheese ball mixes that she labels with vintage postcard images. After tasting the samples, you'll want to pick up several to take home.  Mmmmmmm good!  Toni offers other gift items creatively using found treasures.
Sisters Christine Munsen and Ruth Donikowski

Talent is definitely a family affair.  They both offer unique gift items...things like felted soaps and rocks, salt shaker ornaments, jewelry made from bingo tiles and rulers, button pins and wool felt bracelets and earrings.  These sisters have a talent for repurposing everyday items into one of a kind creations.

Pam Sledd and jewelry

Pam creates her own jewelry and represents 3 other jewelry artists. Their pieces include lucite, old store stock from the '60's and '70's, found items, natural stones such as ocean jasper, turquoise, amber coral and agate. Current color trends are evident in each piece. Go forth and accessorize!!!

73 days till the chicks gather!!!

Lauren and Laura - bakers extraordinaire!

Makes your mouth water, doesn't it?  Pumpkin bars, caramel apples, chocolate-covered pretzels, oh my!!!!  These friends, Laura Jordan and Lauren Benson, are busy baking and wrapping all their "Delec-table" creations for us days before the sale.  Their table is always a big hit.  Come early to grab these goodies.  (We love those chocolate pumpkin bars! Who said diet?)  

Lucy Corrigan and her vintage treasures

Lucy has been a chick for many years.  Her estate sale business gives her the opportunity to gather wonderful vintage items.  They are great for the creative individual who sees the potential for collage, jewelry or just to add to their collections.  It's always an adventure to search through her pre-owned treasures. What will she tempt us with this year?

81 days till the sale!!!
This week we want to feature two of our crafty chicks.
Do you know who this cute chick is?
That's right!  Cindy Pawlyshn.  She's been a chick from the very beginning. Cindy's finely crafted beaded pins are always a hit.  You can always find her by the crowd that gathers in front of her table. Her clever creations have become collectibles with many of her fans. She may be one of the few that actually has groupies.

Julie at the 2007 Sale

Julie has been a chick since 2002.  Julie creates wonderful crocheted flower pins and scarves. She has a beautiful aesthetic and each creation is unique. Be sure to ask her about her new puppy Sprocket. He's pretty cute!
