2 Charming 2 Pass up!

Cynthia Mcbride and Jenifer Kimber, owners of 2 Charming, started out making their adorable charms and jewelry as a hobby, and everyone has loved them so much that there is no way they could not sell them! You will love the versatility and beauty of their charms and other jewels! Come see even more at the show this weekend!

Just Be... (Careful, you might get addicted!)

Just Be… is a company that celebrates the individuality in all of us. Purses are always embellished with unique appliques, trims, beads or hand dyed fabrics. Skirts are made so that you can pair them with a variety of different tops to create your very own look. We hope you enjoy wearing them as much as we enjoy making them. Remember…. There is beauty in individuality !!!

So Many Styles to choose from... How will you decide?

Scrubs, Scrubs, Scrubs- So Cute you just Can't Get enough!

Nadine, a local nurse, spends her free time making the most fashionable and fun scrub tops EVER! If you are looking to get away from the monotony and boring life of store bought scrubs and wear something that is unique, you definately need to stop by her booth at the show and see what she has to offer you!

Purusing Happiness and Sharing it along the way!

Kari (Owner of Custom Crafts by Kari) is a stay-at-home mom of two adorable and busy boys. In her free time she loves to craft and scrapbook. The hours seem like minutes while hiding away in her craft room. She is organized and driven to provide quality crafts that fit into anyone's decor.

*This Calendar is her favorite item to make. It's a 22x22 inch wood frame and about 13.5x13.5 magnetic calendar. It hangs by ribbon which is safely secured to the frame. What a fun way to keep track of the days!

*The picture frame holds a 3.5x3.5 photo and is just enough to add a simple touch to living room book shelf or a baby's room.

*Block letters stand on their own and can be Holiday words or monograms.

GG Gems- Gorgeous!

GG Gems specializes in sterling silver and gemstones. They mine out of Spencer Mines in Idaho and finish them off into beautiful jewelry and even pocket knives! A few of the things they sell include: genuine opal jewelry mounted in sterling silver, sterling silver pendants, earrings, bracelets and more. Check them out online and at the show!

One day, in July of 2006, Jari transferred jobs and wanted to update her look and was told that all she really needed to do was to accessorize.
Now, she had been reading about beading for about 6 months, so she decided to buy a kit and make something.
Bonnie would tell her how wonderful her jewelry was and her reply was "I made it this weekend". Soon she was creating her own designs.

Well, from that minute on Bonnie was hooked. She began making jewelry for herself. When the girls at work began asking Bonnie "where did you get that from?" she proudly replied "I made it". Soon Bonnie was selling her creations to the girls at work.

The two of them (yes, there are only two, if you don't count their other personalities) have combined their items and have created their website to show them off.

And now, here they are, two good friends from work joining forces and creating fabulous "Babble On Jewelry". We hope you enjoy wearing their creations as much as they enjoy creating them.
