There is less than a week to go until our Spring BAZAAR and we are filtering through the many vendor applications. It is truly amazing how much talent and creativity is within arms reach of our own little store. Not to mention, that the notion of “shabby chic” and “vintage” is such a broad category that encompasses anything from re-purposed home furnishings to jewelry…and, we’re going to have a little bit of everything represented!

One of our fabulous vendors is a very talented artist, Diane Owens, Owner of Sonnie Owens Jewelry and More. Diane hand crafts and repurposes vintage jewelry, creates succulent gardens in “vintage vessels,” as well as designs steam punk style and shabby chic home decor.

Diane has been a hobbyist of sorts since elementary school and has always loved shopping flea markets and finding  treasures. “I love vintage 1900 to 1940’s brooches which I turn into focal piece pendants for necklaces,” says Diane. 

With so many different styles encompass “shabby chic” design, Diane veers toward the eclectic mix of French Country, shabby cottage and urban vintage styles, which are prevalent in her succulent gardens. 

Like so many home-based artisans, Diane’s biggest challenge is allocating the time to create. “I work well under pressure,” she states, “so setting up shows and appointments put the pressure on to get things done.”


And, with just days until our BAZAAR, we know Diane is working diligently for those final touches to what we are sure is going to be a vibrant booth with some great products.
