Neighborhood Market Night at Hello! Artisan Shop & Studio


Hello! is opening its studio to some nearby creative friends and Nutmeg Collective members for a Neighborhood Market Night. They will be open for shopping and refreshments, so grab a friend and stop on by and say hello to these special guests:



No stranger to dirt, Nancy Butler is a farmer, mother of three, and a Master Gardener. The owner of Lyric Hill Farm, Nancy creates all-natural, eco-friendly luxuries for bath, body and home designed to pamper and clean. Her goat milk soaps and detergents are made from her own fresh, raw goat milk and organically grown herbs and botanicals, and a carefully curated blend of 100% natural, sustainably-grown, fair trade ingredients. When she is not chasing escaped livestock or doing farm chores, you'll find her knitting linen washcloths to go with her soap. (Granby)



Gracia Hemans-Martin, owner of The Leather Genie, hails from Kingston, Jamaica. Growing up as an extremely artistic and creative child, Gracia was introduced to leather crafting at an early age. When art met leather, The Leather Genie was born. Before long, she became skilled at making handbags, belts, wallets, motorcycle seats, and other items. The Leather Genie particularly loves making one-of-a-kind handbags, and as such, there are some very happy women and men sporting her bags. (Bloomfield/East Hartford)



Tracy Weed of The Tiny Wren takes vintage jewelry that is broken or otherwise unwearable and reworks it into new designs that can be loved again. Everything she makes is not only handmade, but it's a one of a kind piece. She never makes the same thing twice. Tracy's well made jewelry is like wearing a piece of art. (West Hartford)



Trish Nelson, of Melley Nelson Design, is an architect, artist and mother. Drawing house portraits gives her the opportunity to combine all three. The drawings are done of homes that are loved and have, or are about to have, many happy stories of the families that live in them. (West Hartford)
