Ohmygossh! LOOK at these amazing pieces made out of old wine casks!






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.

THE STORY

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.

Made from retired wine casks.

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!

The booth at the Wine Fest was double the size of this one.

Here is their FB page. Click to go to it.
