On the sixth day of Christmas….

A new vendor for our December 20th market will be Theodora with Organic Del Mar Handcrafted Jewelry.

Theodora studied at the Sawtooth School for the Visual Arts with a concentration in metal work.  She uses fresh water pearls, jade, amethyst, quartz and all sorts of gems in her designs. She enjoys working with precious metal clay, .999 pure silver, sterling silver, copper and bronze.

Theodora is also an avid collector of vintage pieces, such as belt buckles, coins, buttons and beads. She incorporates many of these into her art for a one-of-a-kind original piece of jewelry.

We are excited to have Organic Del Mar Handcrafted Jewelry with us for our December 20th market from 9am-5pm. Might just be what you need to finish up that Christmas list!

You can find Organic Del Mar Handcrafted Jewelry at Seaglass Salvage Market and on FB.

On the fifth day of Christmas…

This next vendor probably has the most colorful booth at the market, so she won’t be hard to find.  Kim Papanicolau’s booth is Hopper’s (formally fabUchic).  Just like her booth, she is colorful, wild, and inspiring.

Born with a hearing disability, Kim “heard” through color instead of through sound. She was drawn to the flow and pattern of color and light. It is now her inspiration for the way that she paints, builds and decorates.

At the last pop up market, Kim’s angels were a hit!  Made entirely of re-purposed items, she transforms wood and metal into works of art. To date, the only place that the angels are available for purchase is the Hopper’s booth at Seaglass Salvage Market. For best selection come early.

Stop by the Hopper’s booth December 20th from 9am until 5pm and prepare to be amazed!

On the third day of Christmas…

In our vendor spotlight today, leading up to market on December 20th, is Mike Kinzie. Mike was a new vendor at our pop up market earlier in the month and was a hit with Seaglass Salvage customers from the start!

Years ago while in the handyman business, Mike began seeing that his pile of scrap wood was not going away. Out of necessity to reduce the leftovers, he started building birdhouses for friends and family.  More leftovers, he started building wheelbarrows for the garden, still a mound of wood, he started building lawn furniture…and then….a business was born!

Mike has since retired from the handyman business and is now splitting his time between his new venture and constructing homes as a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity.  As much as possible he still uses materials that he can upcycle, making each creation a unique piece.

Mike will be at our December 20th market from 9am until 5pm. Stop by, shop with him and support another local artist!

On the second day of Christmas…

In our spotlight today is Dennis from Charlie MacGrooders…last market we tasted a wonderful selection of reds. This market, who knows?  Might be white, sparkling or a total surprise.  Charlie MacGrooders is located at 117 Village Road in Leland. Great food, great atmosphere and great wines!

You will find Dennis in the warehouse at the very end of the row.  I can vouch that he gives a great “pour” and the selection he brings is always top notch.  Thanks Dennis!

Come by and visit Dennis with Charlie MacGrooders from  3pm until 5pm during the December 20th market (hours are 9am until 5pm).

On the first day of Christmas…..

Our first vendor to be in the holiday spotlight is Denah Clark….Denah is a local artist with a degree in visual communications and graphic design from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. She started her career in advertising and then moved into custom pencil renderings of homes and churches. Most recently she has been creating artistic clocks from vintage pieces, coins and other odds and ends.

Denah’s pencil renderings are cherished pieces to hand down from generation to generation of an old homestead, a church where your parents were married, or a home you always want to remember.

Denah’s larger clocks are pieces of art and they make a statement. Some of the smaller ones are perfect for gifts or even as stocking stuffers.

In addition to Seaglass Salvage Market, you can find Denah on etsy.  Stop by and say hello and shop with Denah on the 20th from 9am until 5pm!

Shop small and shop local

Why shop small and shop local? Thanks for asking…

1. Buy local and support yourself– Money that we make, we use to support other local businesses, thus continuing to strengthen the economic base of our community.

2.  Keep our community unique-We offer a sense of being “someplace” (Leland/Wilmington/NC), not just “anyplace”.

3.  Better Customer Service– We know our products and are here to assist you!

4.  Buy what you want, not what someone wants you to buy- Shop with us for one-of-a-kind things and things of interest…not mass produced.

5.  Reduce environmental impact– We have upscaled and reworked things that are already here…reducing waste.

Just 5 more reasons to swing by the “pop up” market tomorrow, December 4th from 2pm until 7pm!

Small but living large!

We may be small(only about 3,000 square feet) but we’re living large with all of the wonderful vendors, artists and customers who shop with us and who spread the Seaglass Salvage Market name!

Don’t forget to join us for our “pop up” market this Thursday December 4th from 2pm until 7pm.  Can’t make it on the 3rd weekend of every month? Well here is your opportunity for a weekday event!

Im going to sound a little like Forest Gump and the coconut shrimp, boiled shrimp, fried shrimp…(you get the idea)

But this market we have….raw furniture, painted furniture, stained furniture, DIY furniture, we have jewelry, we have birdhouses, Christmas decorations, angels, wreaths, frames, trees, antiques, headboards, old doors, shutters, wood for projects, chicken coops, candle sticks and a partridge in a peartree!

And did I mention a book signing and a wine tasting?

We have it all, so come and join the fun! See you on Thursday.
