yART Sale


Every Labor Day weekend my friends, Julie and Nick Kypreos, host the coolest art show in their yard. 15 vendors or so, all local artists, pitch their tents and sell their wares. I am honored to be one of them. Everything from hand blown glass to clothing, knitwear, jewelry, photography, woodworking and more, all in the yard, or yART as they call it! People from all over the area come to check it out. The weather at the beach was pretty bad all weekend, biting flies, no breeze and otherworldly hot, so folks just came out in droves to shop. This years’ charity was Make A Wish Foundation and close to 4,000 was earned by the Chinese auction pieces that artists donated. The rain held out until after we all packed up on Sunday but it was crazy hot! I look forward to this show every year, seeing old friends and making new ones. I had a great weekend and want to thank everyone that came out to support all of the local artists, but an especially huge thank you, hugs and lots of  love  to Nick and Julie for their tireless work, amazing generosity and community spirit. You guys rock!! Here are a few pictures of the days events, artists…


About turtlemoondesigns

Sky watcher, dreamer, seeker, stone hoarder.... Finding a love and growing passion for metalsmithing happened as a later in life discovery. I taught preschool for 23 years, but started doing metal work as a hobby about 13 years ago. All I can say is that I get lost and found in it. Three years ago I "retired" from teaching, I'm way too young for that! Now I follow my muse, and feel more filled up in my heart and soul than I could have ever imagined, but I do miss those sweet little faces too!! What a truly amazing thing this has become, my life! Please feel free to contact me with questions or for custom work.
