Art & Crafts
Fine art and crafts are an important part of EFM’s mission — supporting local artists and craftsmen. Art and crafts vendors include:

Daughter of the Charm (5/27, 7/1, 8/5, 9/23) (NEW for 2023!)
Inspired by a dress, my mother made for my doll, I started sewing at four years old. When I was in art school, I made and sold mini skirts on Haight Street in San Francisco, in the 1960’s. After winning a Tiffany foundation fellowship to apprentice weavers in New Mexico, I began making and selling at craft shows there. I design and sewed children’s clothing when my kids were growing up. For the last 25 years, I’ve been sewing vintage inspired kitchen fashion and accessories, and selling at bakeries, restaurants, farmers market and other craft events.
Products include: Aprons for all ages and genders, potholders, cast-iron handle covers, placemats, bowl cozies, bread and produce bags, purses and market bags, baby and adult bibs.
Earthen Goat (5/6, 6/24, 7/8, 8/5, 9/2, 10/28)
While navigating career shifts and life events in 2019, Kevin Blonski began to revisit his love for ceramics. He pitched the idea of a pottery business to his partner Sam Levisay, and they began to brainstorm. Since they both have a passion for plants (with countless houseplants in their apartment), it was only natural to gravitate towards plants and pottery – the perfect pairing.
In August 2020, after many, many months of work, planning, and thought that Earthen Goat was officially established. Since then they have worked with a variety of other Lehigh Valley based companies and creators and they continue to grow as artists and as a business. All of their pottery is handmade and kiln fired in Easton, PA.

ECCo started in 2016 as a passion project! Not overwhelmingly strong or sweet, Rachel set out to craft a candle she could burn without overpowering or offending guests… enough scent to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere! All Easton Candle Co. candles are (1) is safe for humans, pets, and the environment and (2) smell amazing!
Heart Beet Studios (5/6, 6/24, 7/8, 8/5, 9/2, 9/23, 10/28)
Artist Emma Rimi: As a potter, I want the clay to act as another voice of expression. Recently, I have been focusing on the absolute beauty in nature and how to showcase this in ceramic form. My work consists of inspirations from real life conversations, experiences, and the earth that surrounds me. I want to capture and fossilize this by confronting one to look deeper and realize the beauty and little intricacies in life and nature. All pots are food, dishwasher, and microwave safe!
Joint Goods is where all Martina Calluori’s interests can Join Together. This project started in West Chester, PA, where she was living before the pandemic started. After a few months alone in her apartment, she made the decision to move back to the Lehigh Valley where her business has had the room to grow. You can find a wide selection of her products – from candles, to blankets, to hats, to incense (think cozy!) at many shops in the PA + NJ area.
Knot Too Shabby Shop (5/15, 6/24, 8/5, 9/23, 10/14)
All things macrame, made with 100% love, just for you! After 5 years of working as a nanny, the pandemic (as with many) forced Jamie Quiroga to look at other options for work. She started Knot Too Shabby Shop as a hobby, and it quickly turned into her main focus. “Not only is it relaxing, but I also truly enjoy it! I am self-taught and have learned all of the techniques with online learning.”
