Craft & Vintage Market - Anniversary Celebration! Saturday, August 19 @ 10:00 am in the Coffee Lounge
Two years ago, on the 3rd Saturday in August, I hosted my first Craft & Vintage Market. At that time, Berwyn didn't have any regular events of this type and yet our community was home to some amazing artists, makers, and vintage dealers. Fast forward two years and the C&V continues to be a monthly happening.
A huge thank you to Friendly and Rob Pierce for allowing the C&V to be housed in such a creatively energized place; to Lindsey Bach, for being my Friendly go-to and C&V Barista; to the C&V vendors for your professionalism and for trusting me to showcase your work. Last but far from least, to all of you who support the market, the community, and the arts.

Josh Benkert Tintype Photography
Offering 1850's tintype portraits to the public, also known as ferrotypes or melainotypes. These photos are one of the earliest forms of photography in history. This process consist of a very large amount of lighting and for the portraits the sitter/subject/person needs to be able to sit still for several seconds. I will need 20 min of time with the customer for the shoot and the plate will be available for them to take home with them by the end of the event. Josh will also have tintype artwork available for purchase.
Wild&Free AND Black Forest Bakery
A collective of women who were searching for a way to bring back to the community while working with raw, natural and organic materials. This allows us to appease that inner need and drive to create, and an opportunity to do so with ethically sourced and homegrown materials. Each member of our tribe brings something unique and original to the table including; jewelry, bath & body products, baked goods, plants, clothes and home decor.
