So I was invited to sell Horse and Man Jewelry at the Paso Robles Wine Festival last month!
I was incredibly honored because there were only 6 vendors (people not selling wine) allowed – and we were one of them!
Today, I’d like to share one of the other vendors who was invited to sell at Wine Fest this year: ELLIS CHARM AND DESIGN. I don’t know anything about them except that all of their designs are created out of wine casks.
As we were setting up, I saw them (ELLIS CHARM AND DESIGN) bringing in this trailer full of really fun wood sculptures and objects. I kept getting distracted, watching what new, wonderful thing they were pulling out to display. I couldn’t stand it! All this wood and metal in reds and browns – MY FAVORITE – I had to go over, even before my booth was set. So, I ran over.
I saw this wall hanging and said to them, “I WANT THAT!” Here is a pic. You can see it is made out of stained wine barrel wood and the metal stays that keep the barrels tight.
SINCE I DIDN’T TAKE ANY PICS…
…because we were all too busy, dang! I found their FB page and grabbed these photos to share…
So first off, this is a used and discarded wine cask:
FROM THAT, THEY MAKE THESE:
I DON’T KNOW EXACT PRICES OR ANYTHING ABOUT THE PEOPLE… but I think it is very affordable and clever!
There were two artist/owners. But, I don’t know who made what.
This was their booth from a different show. The one I saw was much larger and packed full! I’m thinking they may have a back stock right now since the big Wine Fest just happened. So call them ((310) 927-3343) or go to their FB page!
