June 28th brings together over 20 local artists who will fill their booths with their photographs, garden art, paintings, crafts, wood work, jewelry, apparel, aprons, scarves, glassworks, dog accessories, etched glassware and more!
From 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, adjacent to the weekly farmers market on N. 7th Street, you can meet the creators of these original masterpieces.
Some of the newer vendors to the Fernandina Beach Arts Market include hand-crafted 3-way aprons, wooden bowls that are amazing works of art, and Pawsitively Purrfect Pet Accessories.
Katie Scarlett Royal, of Yo Yo Girl Aprons, has created aprons that can be worn three different ways. One is a full front coverage apron. Add a simple fold and the apron ties at the waist to covering just your lower half. Tuck in the apron strings and fold the apron again and you half a roomy shoulder purse!
Kangee Graham and her father use an old wood lathe from Church Street Station to creating exquisite bowls from amazing woods found near her sister’s Texas home including elm, pecan and Texas Mesquite. What started as a hobby shared by father and daughter has turned into a business in the arts.
These bowls are a MUST SEE – Florida wood used include hickory, sycamore, China berry, orange tree, camphor and swamp bay. All pieces are marked with the type of wood they are created from and signed by the artist.
Pawsitively Purrfect Pet Accessories create adorable home sewn dog collars, harnesses, Martingale collars, leashes, bows and doggie waste bag holders. You can pick up a full set in matching or color-coordinated colors, and they make wonderful gifts, too!
The Fernandina Beach Arts Market is still accepting applications for new vendors, so if you have a unique talent for arts and crafts, please call (904) 557-8229.
