Calendula Oil by Wunder Budder

Today’s Vendor Spotlight features Lisa Dolloff of Wunder Budder.  A bevy of product good for the skin, soul and home!  Above you see a 1 oz dose of calendula oil, you know that super soft and special smell baby products have?  That’s calendula, and it’s my favorite.  A spritz of this and your skin (and smeller) will love you!

Wunder Budder was founded in 2002 in Lisa’s mother’s kitchen, and later truly realized in 2010.  In addition to a terrific website where you can purchase her wares (although we know you’ll see her at The Chill!) she keeps a journal to chronicle wellness and natural cleaning/treatments in her life.  There’s a great recipe for a good, clean time for you and your shower when you visit the blog!

Good morning!  Chilly one out there…

Reversible Enamel Pendant by T.S. Mastro Enamel Jewelry

Today we feature Tracy of T.S. Mastro Enamel Jewelry.  This December will be her second time selling with The Big Thaw/Chill and we’re happy to have her!  Last May, Tracy called me before the event to say her car had lost one of its wheels on her way there.  What?!  So naturally I just figured we were down one person… but then a couple hours later who shows up?  Tracy!  Steadfast commitment to handcrafted arts, love that.

Enamel Pendant by T.S. Mastro Enamel Jewelry

T.S. Mastro’s work offers brightly colored patterns in color to suit all wardrobes and tastes – in fact, many of the pendants are reversible so they’re doing double duty.  Perfectly placed geometric accents and negative space make her pieces truly unique.

Green Donut Pendants and Earrings by T.S. Mastro Enamel Jewelry

Tracy has a busy schedule this holiday seasoned, and we’re honored to be on it!  Come check out her work and two floors of other fantastic vendors at The Big Chill arts, crafts and vintage sale on Sunday, December 2nd at Mayo Street Arts, 10 Mayo Street in Portland!
