“New” is the common theme among today’s featured vendors…Here, we’ll tell you more abouttwo returning vendors bringing new products and expanded lines to this year’s event, a new-to-Hullabaloo woodcarving couple practicing a traditional craft, and a brand new publication joining us this year to introduce their gorgeous first issue!
Andrew Molleur Studio, Kingston, NY
Andrew utilizes traditional and modern techniques to design and construct his low-production functional inlaid ceramic pieces. His vases, trays, planters, mugs, bowls, and other vessels reflect Andrew’s influences from architecture and design, resulting in distinct pieces that combine clean lines, geometric fragments, and textural experiences. This is Andrew’s second Hullabaloo and this year he’s bringing new forms and colors that he’s been integrating to his cohesive collection. Got someone on your holiday shopping list who appreciates minimalist design? Andrew’s work is a sure bet to be their favorite gift all season!
Upstate Diary, Hudson Valley, NY
Upstate Diary is a new publication that focuses on the creators that call the area home, and the lifestyles they cultivate. UD celebrates “the creative possibilities that thrive in communities outside of city limits” and explores the ways the region’s natural beauty and rural ways of life inform and influence the artists they feature. Issue One of this beautiful 9x12 format magazine features interviews and intimate photo essays featuring visual artist Carrie Mae Weems (on race and inequality in art), filmmaker Marianna Rothen (on farm life and distress), and architect Angela Patterson (on Calvin Klein signature shops and barn design). Get your copy of the inaugural issue of Upstate Diary at Hullabaloo—and start off a collection for someone with an appreciation for beautiful photography and insightful interviews. So much more than a magazine, Upstate Diary makes a great gift!
Aubry, Lenox, MA
Inspired by a random book read during some down-time from their farm, Matthew and Kyra Hart began to create hand-carved wooden spoons, lathed-turned bowls, and other wooden pots and vessels. In this “throwaway” culture, they set out to make pieces that would become family heirlooms and carry with them the stories of family gatherings and memories of good company. As is immediately apparent when you see—and touch (you won’t be able to restrain yourself!)—their gorgeous handcrafted pieces, they’ve succeeded. Their work makes a beautiful, thoughtful gift for anyone who loves to cook, or loves to eat. We love their beautiful stirring spoons as hostess gifts (that spoon will be stirring pots for generations to come!) and their gorgeous bowls for newlyweds (to serve them as they grow old together!). This is Aubry’s first Hullabaloo so give them a warm welcome!
Rebecca Peacock Jewelry, Kingston, NY
Rebecca’s geometrically-inspired designs combine understated elegance with socially-responsible luxury. Rebecca uses repurposed materials and materials sourced with ethical, sustainable, and fair work practices in mind. She expertly transforms 14- and 18- karat gold, diamonds, and semi-precious gemstones into rings, earrings, and necklaces that are simple and casual, yet indulgent. In addition to her delicately edgy, classically modern jewelry, Rebecca makes metal spoons and other tablewear, and has increased her offering just in time for her third Hullabaloo! You know that last gift under the tree that you’ve been saving to the very end because it’s a small box that will make a huge impression? THAT’S the kind of gift Rebecca’s jewelry is!
