Holiday Market 2016 : Artist Feature : Beldamia

Beldamia (pronounced bell-dame-ee-ah) is a made up word with witchy roots. Beldam or beldame is an old word for witch. To Beth Kopp, the maker behind Beldamia’s soy wax candles, it’s a place for magical things, a happy place, filled with candles, crystals, a tarot card or two, cats, herbs, flowers, good books, and friends.

Beth’s gorgeously-packaged candles come in a variety of nature-inspired scents like White Fir, Rhubarb Fig, Lavender, and more.

The Freedom Market will be the public’s first opportunity to sniff and purchase Beldamia candles in person, so don’t miss the opportunity!

This year’s Freedom Market will be held on Saturday, December 10 at the Bean Cycle/Wolverine Farm Bookstore in Fort Collins, Colorado. The show runs from 9am until 3pm.

Holiday Market 2016 : Artist Feature : J.H. Tatroe

Jennifer Tatroe of J.H. Tatroe Salvaged Book Goods make souvenirs for all the vacations you’ve taken between the covers of a book.

Book Ornament

All of Jenn’s products are created from used books, acquired from library discards, used book sales, thrift stores, and secondhand bookshops. She seeks out mass-printed books in poor condition, in an effort to keep their stories alive for those who have read and loved them in the past.

J.H. Tatroe’s product line available at the Freedom Market includes holiday decor like wreaths and garland, folded book sculptures, and fine art pieces in which vintage hardcovers sprout magical flowers and foliage.

This year’s Freedom Market will be held on Saturday, December 10 at the Bean Cycle/Wolverine Farm Bookstore in Fort Collins, Colorado. The show runs from 9am until 3pm.
