Hand Beaded Healing Stones

I have always been creative, over my lifetime it has showed up as dress-making, amateur theatre set dressing, props & furniture, Sumi-é (Japanese Ink Painting), making greetings cards and finally I was led to BEADS. I always said I didn't make jewelry and then I came across vintage buttons. It’s definitely ‘a journey’ but that's how this stuff works for a lot of people who have to experience multiple media to find that one thing that feeds the soul. I love Mother Nature’s gems, they feel good in my hands and I love the way designs come together differently for each stone. I love beads and how they interact when stitched collectively.  

The beautiful concert created makes my heart sing.

Pretty Little Purse

fontsticker - Logan and Katherine Higgins.png

Leather Purses and Accessories

The journey of Pretty Little Purse originated with 2 sisters and our lifetime love of purses and leather goods. We initially created unique little leather purse pendants and have since expanded into occasion purses of different sizes. Also available are various accessories including leather infused jewelry. Each creation is inspired by all of God's incredible handiwork displayed in the flowers, leaves and vines, dragonflies and butterflies of field and forest. Every piece is a one-of-a-kind, completely handmade wearable work of art. Our work has been featured in Belle Armoire and Haute Handbags magazines.

Brick Oven Bus

Artisan Wood Fired Pizza


Brick Oven Bus is a truly unique food truck, inasmuch as it's not a food truck at all. It's a bus. Bet you didn't see that one coming. What's more, this food bus was hand built by a supportive family, encouraging their loved ones John and Candy to pursue their passion of cooking in the most entrepreneurial of ways, and by the looks of it, they've more than succeeded.

Just what's cooking on the Brick Oven Bus? Wood fired pizzas, adding authenticity to everyone's favorite comfort food. John and Candy trained at the esteemed Goodfellas Pizza School in NY, so we're gonna say they know a thing or two when it comes to hand crafting specialty pies.

Spill The Beans Design

Graphic Designer

Spill the beans was (and still is) the dream of one little girl.
Growing up she dreamed of a place where it was acceptable to draw on the walls with crayon. Where art began outside the lines, not inside. And where thinking outside the box was normal.

Spill the Beans is a graphic design house where anything goes! Spill the Beans is a group of friends all with different talents: some of us are artists, some of us are business gurus, and some of us, well, let’s just say we’re lucky they know how to make a great cocktail.

Chivo Taqueria

 
Chivo Logo.jpg
 

Unique style of tacos, burritos and other assorted Mexican inspired dishes.

Chivo is a purveyor of fine cuisine providing quality food without pretense. We do not compromise this quality, respecting our community, never trying to fool them with sub-par ingredients or preparation. Long standing relationships with farmers have allowed us to procure these hyper-local, fresh ingredients. We work directly with farmers, leveraging networks known to one of our partners whose family has farmed in East Tennessee for over 100 years.

Chivo relies on the concept of “nose to tail”, whole animal usage to provide excellent food to our customers. We use hogs that are fed local grain procured from a grower in New Market, Tennessee and then processed by a USDA inspected facility in Greenville. This meat is then brought directly to our store. Our whole animal concept, much like our local sourcing, is not just a buzzword we use for marketing purposes. We are utilizing nearly the entire animal. This results in significant waste reduction and more creative, authentic dishes. Other locally sourced items at Chivo include beef, lamb, and goats from local farms, and vegetables from local farmers, weather permitting.

At Chivo, we grind our own flour from local, non-GMO white dent corn combined with other heirloom variety corn sourced directly from a Mexican cooperative, Masienda. We do so in the traditional spirit of the nixtamel process with no shortcuts or compromise.

Felted wool hats, clothing, pet replicas, and wall art

I use the ancient technique of felting wool fiber to create wearable artwork in the form of hats and clothing. I also create wall art from wool, such as landscapes and portraits. I create custom 3D pet replicas and memorials through the process of needle felting. I do teach classes on request.

I am a commercial photographer who saw a need for backdrops for food and other product photos that were super realistic but lightweight and easy to bring to shoots. As I created them, I realized the need for these in any small business industry that wants to take better product shots without having to invest much money in photography.
