Vendor Spotlight: Sandra Webberking Originals
Turns out gardens grow more than flowers. They also grow businesses. That’s what Sandra Webberking discovered when she began creating whimsical sculptures for her much-loved gardens.Read More
Julie Bradley-Norton’s jewelry business started with a pair of leather pants that no longer fit. After holding out hope that she would fit into them again (who can relate?), Julie eventually gave up, got out her scissors and began cutting – voila…up-cycled leather jewelry!
“I love the feel of the leather in my hands and its endless possibilities,” says Julie. “I meticulously cut each piece by hand with an exacto knife and cuticle scissors. I then paint one side with a metallic paint because I want contrast to wear the piece with dark or light outfits.” The result is a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art.
Julie’s company name, “Florance and Leah,” honors her grandmothers – one a social butterfly immigrant and the other an artistic, quiet farm girl. Although both have passed, they continue to inspire this self-described “Jersey girl.”
Come see Florance and Leah on June 16 from 10AM – 4PM at McConkey’s Market in Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA).
McConkey's Market is held in the heart of Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA). The park marks the site where George Washington made his heroic Christmas Day crossing of the river. Vendors are surrounded by the park's Colonial-era buildings against the backdrop of the beautiful Delaware River.
Washington Crossing has been named the #2 wealthiest zip code in the Philadelphia region by the Philadelphia Business Journal. Plus, the eclectic and artistic community of New Hope is located less than 10 minutes north of the park.
The park is minutes from I-95 and set on River Road, a busy thoroughfare.
