Earthen Goat (May 14, Jun 25, Jul 16, Aug 13, Sep 3, Oct 8) (NEW for 2022!)
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.

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!

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.”

Beginning in 2008 as a cooperative of women in Cajolá, a Mayan town in the western highlands of Guatemala, the women of the town came together to explore ways to provide jobs within their community, rather than migrate to the U.S. and separate their families.

As proud members of the Fair Trade Association, their products range from beautiful woven bags to jewelry, toiletry cases to aprons, belts and so much more…!
