Featuring This Year’s Vendors:

All Things W’ren

ATW will be showcasing the new book, The Address to Your Heart. The book, filled with beautiful imagery and lush poetry, author Babs Fee and illustrator Ara Elizabeth will take you on a journey to somewhere most familiar: your own heart. 100% of profits generated from sales of the book will support the vision for a holistic health retreat center focusing on care of veterans. ATW will also have companion merchandise, including gift cards, art prints, jewelry and more.

Beautycounter

Come get a jump on your holiday shopping (or treat yourself to some goodies in preparation for the holiday party season) and learn about SAFE beauty with Beautycounter.  Our mission is to get safer products into the hands of everyone.  The beauty and personal care industry is one of the least regulated industries out there. We deserve better. At Beautycounter, we’re doing something about it. We rigorously screen for questionable or harmful ingredients while setting a new standard for high-performance beauty products.

We’re the farm where the third grade comes camping, and who supplies the 8th grade cookies, and the CSA boxes in the lobby! We are  a non profit community of six households including those with developmental challenges.  Everything is made by our diverse team. We have wreathes, jam, pickles, herbs and salves, and  maple syrup all from our certified organic farm, wooden toys and decorations,  beeswax candles, hand painted silks and cotton, and lovely cards. All of our profits go right back to support the community and all its programs. We’ve been coming to the fair for twenty years and look forward to seeing everyone again -lots of ex Waldorf parents out here and now a new generation in Isaac Flynn (preschool)  If you’d like us to bring anything specific in just for you, drop me an email!

Food is always a labor of love….Please come see us in our Minnetonka store (that’s attached to the kitchen) to see whats new and sample everything we have to offer. The people who are making your chocolates love what they do and have a very long history with us. We hope you enjoy our chocolates as much as we’ve enjoyed making them.

Take playtime to the next level.

After having children of my own, I find myself reading to them the very books, stories, and adventures that I loved as a child. Ones that travel the world through time and space, and allow them to make new discoveries along the way. Ones that I see played out again and again by them in our backyard and basement.

It is important that our kids are looking at each other in the eyes and interacting face to face, rather than sitting on a couch and virtually interacting with each other through a device. These times of creative play are holy moments in our lives, ones in which our kids get to be kids. We aunts, uncles, parents, and grandparents are privileged to watch and listen to these little ones become the very heroes and legends that great stories are made of. And if we’re lucky we adults get to join in the play, putting down our devices, being kids again ourselves, playing a part written by our children in their very own stories and adventures.

Being a kid-at-heart myself, I thought about the kind of toy I wished I had as a child. A toy that I could use to protect my mom from the fiery dragons. One that could conquer even the hardiest of shrubbery ogres and lead the charge through the tallest pile of leaves. One of quality that was both child-friendly and yet “realistic” in look and feel. A toy that would stand the test of time.

We are dedicated to publishing books that empower adults and children to grow and transform.

The first book for adults is the award winning book, Empowered Health and Wellness: Awakening your Inner Physician. Katelyn is working on her second book My Heart Rocks: a field guide to a healthy heart

Our Empowered Children’s Series:
Katelyn’s vision is to create books for children that have empowering messages.
This series is a groundbreaking new way to teach and empower children! Written by Katelyn Mariah, a former psychologist who worked with children for 26 years. She learned how important it is that children are taught empowering skills early, before they become indoctrinated by society with information that might not be helpful. The Empowered Children Book Series is created to give children concepts that will help them navigate the world with more conscious awareness. We will cover subjects such as discovering the inner healer, law of attraction, clean eating, how to work with dreams and many other topics.
The award winning Hindy Hedgehog’s Magical Garden and Mocha Mouse Creates a Wonderful day are the first in the series.

I create one-of-a-kind, handmade jewelry using Lake Superior stones and sea-glass and often incorporate handmade glass beads into my work. I also create felted covers for tablets and smart phones. Leather bracelets and felt with metal bracelets, along with earrings and necklaces using metal with a patina finish are also pieces I enjoy making.

I have a passion for embroidery, soap making and caring for my bees.. If there is anything special you would like on a dish towel a name or monogram, or special colors for pot holders, please contact me. I would love to make you a custom item. I hope you enjoy what you see as much as I enjoy making them.

 We invite you to “make peace with your palate” and experience some of the finest Extra Virgin Olive Oils from around the world along with our thick and delicious Traditional Balsamic Vinegars from Modena, Italy.Choose from over 50 unique flavored oils and vinegars that we bottle daily to insure freshness.
