    Meet the Maker - CIndy Allen Vintage Button Rings

    Saturday Apr 1
    1 pm - 4 pm

    Old Town General Store

    Old buttons are fascinating and fun and they make very cool, unique rings!

    They appeal to our 'inner child' - sorting, playing, admiring, collecting. As a way to display their beauty and being a wire worker, Cindy came up with the idea of making a band attached to a button so it can be worn as a ring. Her technique uses basic tools, coated copper wire and, of course, buttons! The buttons in her rings are authentically antique or vintage. The most popular are the handcrafted 'picture' buttons from the 1880's, Victorian black glass, Art Deco and 1940's intensely colored Czech pressed glass. Cindy's original source of collectible buttons was inherited from her Mom. Then she found a local antique collector who sold her literally all of her small buttons. Having depleted that supply, I now find them on Etsy and other websites. She's made and sold 2000 +/- so far. Making the rings is actually therapeutic. And collecting the buttons is just plain addictive!

    Meet the Maker - Arktos Meadery

    Saturday Apr 1
    1 pm - 4 pm

    Old Town General Store

    For more than 9,000 years, the fermentation of honey has helped define culture and shape history. Early Slavic trading, Norse Mythology, Vedic Hymns of India, Old English Epics, 19th century Russian Literature, all of these acts or works, not to mention the contemplations of many a great mind of ancient Greece, have taken part in documenting and contributing to the continuing history of what we commonly refer to as Honey Wine or Mead making.

    Arktos Meadery is now one more step in this evolutionary process. Nature has so graciously provided us with all the ingredients necessary for the production of this Nectar of the Gods. Now it is our responsibility to take these fruits, spices, and yeasts and combine them with those two wonderfully simple ingredients of honey and water for the purpose of continuing the hallowed tradition of making mead.

    It is our hope and intention to provide each and every one of our mead drinkers with the finest, simplest and most natural mead possible. Oh, that sweet, sweet nectar . . .

    Meet the Maker - Integrity Pure and Natural

    Saturday Apr 29
    1 pm - 4 pm

    Old Town General Store

    DeAnna Gilbert from Integrity Pure & Natural will be at the Old Town General Store to demonstrate their Michigan-made natural skincare products, using ingredients such as Natural Oils, Essential Oils, Vitamins, and Minerals. They focus on all-natural ingredients because our bodies are designed to better absorb what nature has to offer. Their product line is Gluten-free, Dye-free, Paraben-free, and use No Animal Testing.

     

      It is vitally important to know what we put in and on our bodies.  The skin is our largest organ and it absorbs 60% of what we apply on it; therefore, what we put on our skin is just as important as what we eat.  Clean eating habits, exercise, and All-Natural Skincare Products will create the best quality of a healthy life style.  Skin cells regenerate approximately every 28-35 days, so give your skin time to adjust to and benefit from a new skin care regimen. We strive to help others improve their well-being with our products.
