It was a beautiful day, as we ventured to the Lynd Fruit Farm in Pataskala, Ohio. We visited various vendors at their “The Memorial Crafters’ Event”: there were over 80 vendors and food trucks! We want to focus on two of our favorite stops: the first we encountered was Chris Smith Pottery. We purchased a small mug with a beautifully shaped handle and impressively detailed pine trees carved on the body, handle, as well as the underside of the mug. We also purchased a kitchen utensil holder/vase sitting on round legs, which has a leaf design all around, and a sweet bird carved on what looks like an emblem or seal on the front center. All of Chris’s works were interestingly designed and crafted.
Our second favorite stop was Juhi Fashion House. There were many handmade quilts that were very intricately sewn by hand. Juhi shared that she dyes the threads she uses with natural dye techniques. You could tell that each quilt was thoughtfully designed and was of great quality! I purchased a journal that caught my eye. I love it; I started writing in it that night!
