We have invited Milton & Margies Soy Wax Candles, Bird Trouble & Earth Cadets to join us from 12-5pm on Saturday, March 10th for a mini makers market. These talented artisans make all of their goods by hand…and you are invited to make something too! Busy Beaver Button Co. is providing the materials for us to make buttons for the upcoming March elections!

Milton & Margie’s Soy Wax Candles


Milton & Margie’s Soy Wax Candles creates 100% soy candles in reused containers like teacups and cocktail glasses. With scents are inspired by the Midwest like Camp Fire, Dusk and Great Lakes, it is hard to choose just one!
