Point Pleasant, NJ (PRWEB) April 04, 2014
Custom handmade silver jewelry, chimes, and gifts from Tempest In A Teapot are hot this spring. Because of this, the owners of Tempest In A Teapot are once again preparing to hit the road for their 2014 craft, antique, handmade, wholesale, and retail show tour. And their first event is the Chicago Botanic Antiques and Garden Fair being held from Friday – Sunday, April 11 – 13, 2014, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
“Local folks in the shore areas of New Jersey enjoy visiting us personally because of the uniqueness of our brick-and-motor store and the custom handmade products featured there, said Tempest In A Teapot owner Elsa Mikus. Mikus continued, “But, while everything is also available via our website, many of our customers, especially potential ones enjoy actually holding our creations; an experience that online shopping lacks. This is why it’s so important for us to get out on the road and do these shows. It’s important for us to get our creations into the hands of the consumer.”
Co-Owner, Barbara Ryan added, “Yes! There’s something about actually touching one of our handmade pieces that can light up the five senses. The majority of our pieces are up-cycled family heirlooms with a distinct story behind the item. Many people come to us with silver flatware and service sets or old watches and keepsakes that have been sitting in their attic or jewelry boxes for decades; they ask us to breathe new life into these personal treasures. We also discover many unique finds at flea markets, garage sales, or other fairs. Owning an up-cycled Tempest In A Teapot creation has the ability to transport one to another place and time or memory. That experience may include not only touching and seeing the item, but also sparking a smell, sound, or taste from a past memory. This type of experience is something that only a live craft vendor show allows us.

The team at Tempest In A Teapot is asking as many people as possible to consider shopping local and with small businesses this spring for a positive shopping experience which helps the creator, consumer, seller, and supplier alike. And don’t forget, all items sold at their vendor booth are also available for purchase online. Plus, the company’s entire product lines are uniquely created gifts and all made in the USA.
