We’ve worked hard to curate an event that offers something for everyone—for everyone on your gift list, for anyone’s budget, and to cater to many different tastes and interests. These five Hullabalooers are great examples of the diversity in our vendors…Whether you’re looking for a super-special gift for a new baby’s nursery, want to encourage a healthier lifestyle, need a present for a restless traveler, want to give a piece of everyday elegance, or are looking mix up your wardrobe with some timeless articles of clothing, Hullabaloo has got a vendor for you!
PetitFelts, Copake, NY
Jocelyn hand-dyes and needle-felts little critters with big personalities! She puts a ton of love into every one, carefully sculpting them into realistic miniatures and giving each an expression and a story (Gertrude the Octopus used to terrorize ships, but she’s given that up to lead underwater tours; Rimbaud the swan wants you to know he’s more than just his graceful good looks!). Jocelyn’s animals are accurate down to every last detail and fascinating to admire. Her pieces can be used as finger puppets and are great for interacting with children of all ages. However, they are also delicate artwork and some even have tiny party hats, so it’s best to consider them more decorative than playthings. Sit them on a shelf and they can be enjoyed for years to come! In addition to the finger puppet pieces, Jocelyn makes brooches (which can also serve as ornaments or be mounted on the wall like tiny, felted taxidermy) and has added mobiles to her line. This is Jocelyn’s first Hullabaloo and we are so thrilled to have her and help her charming creatures find good homes!
Good Fight Herb Co., Germantown, NY
With some help from their “medicinal herbs for mighty health,” Lauren of Good Fight Herb Co. reassures you that “you are good medicine.” An herbalist, healer, and educator, Lauren grows, gathers, and sources the organic herbs used in her blends, sprays, tonics, tinctures, and other natural remedies. She’s got the solution for whatever ails you—whether you’re broken-hearted (Self-Love Potion #9), are battling anxiety during a difficult time (Deep Breath De-Stress Blend), need a good night’s sleep (Sleep Tight), or are battling the sniffles (Kick a Cold Blend). She’s also got some little items that can be packaged with her remedies for a great gift! Want to bring an ailing friend something better than chicken soup? Wrap up Lauren’s Kick a Cold Blend with a handmade hanky! Somebody need a little reminder to take their medicine? A medicine shot pot, made custom for Good Fight, pairs perfectly with any potion! This is Good Fight’s first Hullabaloo, so stop by to stay well!
Lock & Key Leathers, Kingston, NY
Crystal of Lock & Key Leathers considers each of her bags a story…from how the bag drapes when it’s held to where she sources her materials—so much goes into each piece that sometimes she dreams all night about making patterns, or is up at night worrying about details like how long to make the handles of a new tote. The love and attention to detail that goes into each of Crystal’s bags is apparent in the fine workmanship and beautiful designs. Made of leather and waxed canvas, much of her work is intentionally well-loved-looking, because they’re made for adventurers with wanderlust. Whether it’s a ruggedly luxurious tote, a distressed cross-body bag, a beautifully battered wallet, a wonderfully worn clutch, or some other accessory, your new favorite will feel like an old, familiar favorite. She’s been collaborating with her husband too, and he’s now tooling his artwork on some of Crystal’s pieces, to make them extra-special! The best part? The more you use them, the more character they collect. It’s Crystal’s third Hullabaloo and we’re so glad she’s been with us from the beginning.
Jewels by JaimeLynn, Delmar, NY
We love Jaime’s delicate, feminine jewelry, which she describes as “simple jewelry for everyday, graceful wear” that are designed to enhance your natural beauty. Using high-quality gemstones and precious metals, Jaime has added gold to her line since last year, when she primarily worked in silver. Jaime’s work is refreshingly uncomplicated, allowing the beauty of the materials to really shine through. We LOVE her stackable gemstone bar bracelets, and her understated necklaces that are perfect for layering. Wouldn’t any lady on your shopping list love to find a box from Jewels by JaimeLynn in her stocking? We know we would! You can’t go wrong with her versatile pieces that look great on anyone, no matter what their style! We’re so happy to have Jaime back!
Lovefield Vintage, Kingston, NY
Imagine the best styles and pieces from every era…What do you see? The racks of Lovefield Vintage? Because that’s what comes to mind for us! What are you coveting right now? Darbie just might have it—or can find it! Everything on Lovefield’s racks is there because Darbie loves it (not just because it’s old) and has a vision for how it can be mixed with other finds from various periods and styles. Darbie’s collection is so carefully curated and she’s got such an eye for picking out unique pieces and putting them together with other awesome things! She’s got everything from 60s cocktail frocks to 90s ruffled baby doll blouses—and men’s stuff too, like well-worn denim, vintage tees and flannels…Shoes, jewelry, and other accessories have a place on her shelves too. We’re thrilled to have Darbie back for her second Hullabaloo, and we can’t wait to see what she’s found for us this year!
