Crafters Cove at MSF offers abundance of treasures

MADISON – Crafters Cove at Madison Street Festival on Oct. 6 will feature the area’s best in original designs.

Crafters Cove will have 60 vendors this year. “Twenty-five are returning vendors, and 35 are new vendors. This year is first time that new vendors outnumber returning vendors,” Crafters Cove Chairperson Brenda Parker said.

Parker has volunteered with the Madison Street Festival Committee for about 20 years with entertainment and crafts. “I always look forward to seeing what these crafters bring each year. They inspire me with their hard work and originality,” Parker said.

Crafters Cove’s location is the corner of Church and Maple streets. “Make Crafters Cove your shopping destination, and enjoy a snack from our food vendor while you browse,” Parker said.

Woodcrafters/woodworkers include ET-1 Enterprises; Carpenter Carpentry; John ‘Twigs’ Neely; T & S Woodworks; R T Custom Woodcraft; Woodmont Woodwork and Design; and H & H Woodcraft Designs. These artisans make handmade pens, wine bottle stoppers, corn hole games and wooden kitchen utensils, along with one-of-a-kind twig-and-bent-willow furniture.

Shawn Doughty from Athens with Who, What, Where Art will bring his beautiful, unique paintings and drawings. Doughty creates hand-drawn collages of Southeastern states and cities that he sells as signed prints.

For eye-catching wreaths for all seasons, visit Dixie Wreaths; Madison Wreath Makers Live; and Handmade by Karan.

“If you’re looking for that special gift for your very own princess, look no further than Pumpkin Patch; Luna Bella; Barbara Hilliard; Ears and There; and Honey Pot Treasures,” Parker said. “Shoppers can choose from ribbon shakers, hair bows, tutus, handmade ears, shirts and ornaments.”

Personalized ceramics, hand-painted gourds, original paintings, pillows, industrial pipe lamps and up-cycled furniture and accessories are a small sampling.
