The second annual Holiday Shop at Greenfield Hall (343 Kings Highway East) will proudly feature works from the finest artisans and designers in South Jersey.

Back by popular demand is Dr. Sam Moyer, otherwise known as the Jersey Jerry Broom Squire.   Dr Moyer’s broom making heritage comes from his Pennsylvania Dutch roots, and his basic designs were learned by observations at Old Sturbridge Village in MA. He is a founding father of a network of over 300 broomcrafters in North America.

Also available will be Dianne Snodgrass, a renowned hand weaver who specializes in one of a kind scarves.  This season’s selections will offer a variety of fibers including silk, mohair, bamboo, linen and wool.  She is a member of the South Jersey Guild of Spinners and Handweavers.

Aurna Enterprises was founded by Barbara Stanger 22 years ago after receiving an ornament commission from the Metropolitan Opera Guild in New York City.  Since then she and Susan Stanger have created garden ornaments of unparalleled beauty, crafted in brass and protected by a natural verdigris finish.  Their work has been displayed in art galleries and fine craft stores across the USA.

A native of Haddonfield, Kathy Malcarney Baier of JMG Creations will be presenting her handcrafted jewelry inspired by nature.  Her striking and enduring designs feature materials from the world around us including sterling silver, gemstone beads, wood, and sea glass.

Also available will be:

  • Hand Painted Children’s Wearable Art by Susan Pillay
  • Trendy to classic clothing by Sew Cute Doll Clothing
  • New Jersey’s best Bee Keeper and Honey Producer Seth Belsen
