Edgewater Candles

Edgewater Candles are handmade, rustic soy candles with a variety of wonderful fragrances. Evocative scents and herbal essences will tempt your senses. Whether you prefer woodsy, citrus, spicy, musky, or clean and fresh, we have something for everyone. The simple, label-free glass jar and neutral color fit perfectly into any decor. We are upcycling and repurposing enthusiasts. Our labels are minimal so the jar can be easily reused. After the candle is spent, wipe out any remaining soy wax with a paper towel and use a pair of pliers to remove the wick holder. The mason jar can then be used in the freezer, refrigerator, or microwaved without the lid on. Our fragrances are essential oil and fragrance oil blends and are all pthtlate free and all our wicks are free of any metals.

Eric Erf Woodworking

My mission is to create functional art from reclaimed barn wood, giving it a second life. For decades the wood has served purpose on rural landscapes and once that usefulness is past, I look to have it serve a new purpose in our lives, be it rural or city. For 25 years I worked on one of the trading floors. I wanted to get more of a sense of creating things and I taught myself woodworking. I work with traditional wood but found a particular satisfaction working with reclaimed wood from the farms of the Midwest. Nature has spent years forming the unique texture of the barn wood and I enjoy seeing a second life within the wood, harvesting it and forming a new function for it.

Geekbots

My name is Frances and I am the arist behind the wonderously amazing robots you see here at GEEKBOTS. Its been four wonderful years since I’ve opened shop and every year has brought in opportunities for new ideas and new designs. Each order that comes through holds just as much excitement for me as my very first order. Artists will often tell you to do what you love, work hard and it will not fail you. What I’ve learned in these last few years is that my personal success isn’t determined by the number of sales or praying for the chance to “quit my day job”; rather its in actually taking what I love, investing my time, creativity and imagination into it, and being rewarded with the gift that soon enough that magic will be heading off to brighten someone’s day. That, my friends, is success for my soul and it plays a major role in the treasured happiness I have with my life.

Tuscany Creative

My name is Katie and I am a former third grade teacher, now stay-at-home Mom of three. My kids are my inspiration for all the toys and gifts I design and make. All new creations have to be approved by my daughter Tuscany, who I named my shop after. Once I had my second child I decided to leave teaching so I could raise my daughter and son. With lots of creative energy to spare I started making fun and cute things for my six year old daughter Tuscany, my 2 year old son Agostino and my nieces in NYC. That’s when I knew I was really onto something special and decided to open my own store. Now I get to share all my creations with you! I have been in business for about 2 years and have sent my goodies to children in 40 states as well as 6 countries outside the Unites States. I also sell my creations in boutiques in New York & Chicago.
