Blaq Star Soaps

Handcrafted soaps to get you into a groove

September 10 and October 8

Mix it up a bit during bath time with handmade soaps. You’ll smile at names like, “Funky Cold Verbena", “When Suds Fly”, and “Gettin’ Figgy Wit’ It” and get clean with soap made the old fashioned way. Pick up several for a mix tape of musical memories and old school suds.

Maynard, MA


July 2, July 30 and August 20

My turning philosophy is to create high-quality, hand-made wooden bowls to demonstrate the beauty of the internal wood grain patterns of native hardwoods. My bowls are low-profile to allow inspection of the wood grain patterns. They are utilitarian and useful in the Kitchen and for decorations. All are unique. All are finished in food-safe oil finish.

Hidden Dragon Candles

market dates TBD

Hand-made dragon candles that have a dragon figurine inside! When you burn a regular candle you are rewarded with the comforting yellow glow of a candle flame and the relaxing fragrance stored within the wax. But once the candle has burned, all that remains is a memory and a pool of melted wax. Not so with Hidden Dragon Candles! When you burn your dragon candle, a pewter dragon figurine will rise from the pool of wax. This is your Hidden Dragon – a permanent reminder of your candle.
