March 11th brings the Arts Market to Town

March 11th brings the Fernandina Beach Arts Market to town, joining the weekly farmers market that is open every Saturday of the year, rain or shine, except for May 6th – the Saturday of the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival.

Adjacent to the farmers market is the Arts Market. Here you will find 30 booths of hand-crafted and home-made jewelry, framed art, paintings, wood working, apparel, and more. J. Thompson Knives are created by a gifted cutler and blade smith. Whether you are looking to find a one-of-a-kind pocket knife, field knife, or a gift for your favorite chef, you will surely be awed by the craftsmanship. Also in the Arts Market is Mike’s Makings. Mike makes tiny bird houses, large ornate bird houses, flamingo planter boxes and other whimsical wooden yard art that is affordable as it is cute. One of the most popular vendors is The Collar Cottage. Tanya sews dog collars, leashes, bows, walking bags, and slip on bandanas for dogs of all sizes in a huge variety of patterns and fabrics. When you take your new collar to vendor Amelia Island Julz, she can attach a permanent tag that she will hand stamp with your pet’s name and phone number. There is something for everyone!

Our Booth with a Cause this week is Cats Angels. Formed in 2001, Cats Angels offers an aggressive trap-neuter-return program to spay and neuter feral cats and then return them to their caregivers. This is an all volunteer, 501(c)3 charitable organization helping to reduce the overpopulation of felines in the Fernandina Beach area. They will be on-site to talk about the upcoming Nassau County Animal Expo hosted by Cats Angels, Inc. SPCA on March 18th at the Atlantic Avenue Recreation Center. Look for their feline mascot, Halo, to make an appearance.
