Mr. Brown of Brownie's Woodcrafts makes all of his wooden home decor and gifts by hand using a scroll saw. He is very thankful for finding this wonderful craft in retirement, 18 years ago and loves sharing his craftsmanship with his customers, friends and family.

Mother of all Bottles is run by a working mom and hobby artist Maryanne Frake. Making bottle art started out with the hunt for sea glass. Collecting sea glass was a fun weekend pastime for her family but they collected so much they had to come up with what to do with it all. After many beautiful and fun projects with sea glass the hobby changed into what she can make with recycled bottles. She loves turning trash into reusable and beautiful items. Every piece of glass from the bottles is used in her creations. The pastime has also brought her closer to her teenage son. He loves to help her sell and has given himself the title of Chief Sales Officer.
Wreaths and Pieces by Maria. “I have been designing wreaths for over 15 years. All are one of a kind and affordable for everyone to welcome friends and family to your home.” -Maria

Anna Salibello Pottery. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Anna, has settled on studio pottery as her permanent career. Her early pottery years led to her founding an architectural ceramic tile business. Her most notable project was making mosaics and tile for the restoration of the New York City subway system. Her work decorates many subway stations. The magnetic pull of persona l expression in ceramics won out. Anna has rediscovered her true passion in throwing and hand building pottery on the wheel and more recently, hand building functional and decorative sculptural pieces. After exposure in Japan to masters, her work has shown the strong influence of the Japanese aesthetic. She is happiest making work in a distinctively organic style, purposely echoing the imperfections found in life.
NJ Logowear has created a line, 609 Life, especially for the Maximilian Foundation with lots of exciting items just for our store.
