Miniature Donkeys at the Swap - Again!!!

We are thrilled to announce that Cindy Benson, the Miniature Donkey Lady from last year's Swap, will once again be bringing us a fun group of animals to admire and play with at the swap! If you were there last year, you know her booth was very popular. She is bringing Curtsy, the Poitou donkey (in the photo we believe), 2-3 Miniature Donkeys, Posy, the miniature heifer, 2 Saanen milk goats, and she said she may bring her little Haflinger mare. She will also be taking orders for mini calves and Livestock Guardian Dogs, both due in November. Cindy will be in spaces X1 through X3, along the North wall by the big roll up door. Be sure you stop by and enjoy the animals she brings to share with us!

Skyclad Creations!

Our next Fall Swap Vendor in the limelight is Christy Henderson with Skyclad Creations.
Christy joined our swap community last Fall and we have all fallen in love with her sparkly, creative suncatchers, jewelry, handfasting cords and the other creative items she seems to endlessly come up! Christy takes custom orders too year round and has an Etsy shop. Be sure and take a look at her FB page and stop by to see her sparkly stuff in space # H -11.
In addition to her crafts, she is taking preorders for full loaves or bundt Pumpkin bread to be picked up at the Fall Swap. We all got a taste of this at Chickenstock and demanded more! Email her for details or join our Fall Swap Group to see her posts.

Over the next few weeks, we will be highlighting several of our vendors at the Fall Swap. Check out their FB pages and stop by their vendor spaces at the swap! 

First up is Blake Rice with Chickens & Rice Beading. Blake's beaded chickens debuted at our Fall Swap in 2013.  Many of you might already know Blake and maybe even have some of her awesome chickens (or pigs!). If you don't, why not!!?? You are missing out on something really cool! Even The Chicken Chick has Blake's beaded chickens!

Blake is taking custom orders right now that can be picked up at the swap (prices and contact information are on her page). Send her a photo of your chicken and she will turn it into earrings, a pendant, a zipper pull, an ornament or a keychain or a stand alone beaded creation. Blake will be in vendor space B-14 at the Swap.
