Makers Spotlight!: Boneshaker Print Shop, Fruition Chocolate, Pulp Sushi, Tivoli Tile Works, and Vernacular Design.

Boneshaker Print Shop – You wanted one of those old-school uptown Kingston map t-shirts too, didn’t you? Steve’s locally-inspired t-shirts were a huge hit at last year’s Hullabaloo, so visit his table early this year before he sells out!  In addition to his awesome shirts, Boneshaker Print Shop in Kingston designs and screen prints awesome album packages, show posters, and more.  He specializes in custom work, so ask him about getting some swag printed for your business!

Fruition Chocolate – Bryan Graham and his award-winning “bean to bar” chocolate have received accolades in numerous local and national publications, including being named one of the “Top 10 Chocolatiers in North America” by The Dessert Professional. In his workshop in Shokan, he slowly roasts and stone-grinds hand-selected organic, fair trade cocoa beans to create chocolate bars, chocolate coated nuts and dried fruits, brown butter  bourbon caramels, and the incredible dark chocolate coated jalapeno dusted corn nuts. Buy two of whatever you decide to give as gifts—because the first won’t make it home! We’re so excited that Fruition will be returning to Hullabaloo this year!

Pulp Sushi –Marilyn is returning to Hullabaloo with her “haunting handmade” jewelry, inspired by Gothic, Retro, and Victorian styles (“a time machine gone haywire,” she says!). She uses new materials like charms, beads, and pearls, along with found vintage materials, in her modernly nostalgic earrings, bracelets, and necklaces.  Her pieces make great gifts and stocking stuffers for anyone who appreciates any of the styles that influence Pulp Sushi’s trendy-but-timeless designs. Marilyn is from Fishkill, NY and is a leader of the Hudson Valley Etsy Team. Stop and say hello!

Tivoli Tile Works Caroline splits her time between Rhinebeck and the west coast of Ireland, and we’re glad she’s in town to join us at Hullabaloo for the first time! Trained in sculpture and painting, Caroline finds pottery to be “the perfect synthesis of her two loves.” She creates fine, collectable hand-thrown pottery and functional art such as bowls, mugs, pitchers, plates, vases, and other pieces that are simultaneously colorful and lively, but seem straight out of quaint country farmhouse.  She also has a gorgeously understated “Snow White” collection and some pieces painted with birds and other designs. Imagine them on your holiday table…totally Instagram-worthy!

Vernacular Design Growing up in the Hudson Valley, Jack developed an appreciation of historic architecture and went on to study historic design principles, patterns, and tools. He applies this knowledge, and the skills he honed renovating his 1790s farmhouse, to build gorgeous custom furniture, and do restoration work. He’s bringing his smaller, giftable pieces—like cutting boards, knife blocks, and other home accessories—to his first Hullabaloo…Pick something up for the gourmet or the home owner who appreciates fine craftsmanship!
