Vendor Spotlight!: Field Guide Design, Jay Teske Leather Co., Hawk Dance Farm, Ehstern, and Wishbone Letterpress.

Field Guide Design – Darbie Nowatka, from Kingston, NY is returning to Hullabaloo for year two! You may know Darbie from her band Bishop Allen, but did you know she makes super-cool pet rock necklaces and DIY geometric ornament kits, and has an awesome vintage clothing Etsy shop too? Her necklaces harness the power of various stones to bring you luck in various aspects of life and come beautifully packaged with an explanation of the stone’s significance. She’s got awesome taste in vintage clothing and accessories too, so check out her double spot at Hullabaloo to see both her handmade designs and her vintage finds!

Jay Teske Leather Co. - Jay is the owner of Pirate Upholstery on the Rondout in Kingston, where he makes custom motorcycle seat upholstery. With Jay Teske Leather Co., he offers smaller leather products like key fobs, wallets, portfolios, luggage tags, and airplant holders (for the friend who literally has everything, except time to care for high-maintenance plants!). Jay is based in Kingston, and uses hides from the remaining two tanneries in the country that specialize in bridle leather. He finishes his handsome pieces with solid brass, stainless steel, and nickel-plated brass hardware. Great gifts for guys are hard to find, but look no further than Jay’s table at Hullabaloo!

Hawk Dance Farm - In addition to heirloom vegetables, herbs, and flowers, which they sell at farmers’ markets, to restaurants, and at natural food stores, the folks at Hawk Dance Farm in Hillsdale also make these beautiful candles that they’ll be selling at Hullabaloo! Made from 100% beeswax, they remind you of a traditional, cozy holiday and make great gifts for hostesses, friends, teachers, and gift swaps. Welcome to Hullabaloo, Hawk Dance!

ehstern - Kingston-based Emilia’s jewelry begins with silk that she dyes in small batches using a Japanese process called shibori. She cuts the silk into strips, and uses her sewing machine to wrap thread around the strips to create cords, then incorporates beads and other elements to create colorful, casual statement pieces.  Stop by Emilia’s table and welcome her to her first Hullabaloo!

Wishbone Letterpress – Hullabaloo founder and co-organizer Danielle Bliss and her husband Joe Venditti combine an antique process with fresh modern designs and their signature edginess and wit—their awesome letterpress cards, coasters, calendars, and other products are hand-printed on their antique presses in The Shirt Factory in Kingston.  They wholesale to small boutiques and national chains such as Urban Outfitters (have you seen their “rad” cards there?), and their studio in the shirt factory was recently featured on Design*Sponge. They also offer wedding invitations, business cards, and other custom pieces.  Their selection of holiday cards includes both traditional and quirky options, and some everyday cards too! Oh! And coasters for all your holiday entertaining needs!
