Beacon Craft Studio My name is Meredith Clark and I founded Beacon Craft Studio in 2019. As a queer person of color who has loved crafting since childhood, I was unsatisfied with the very gendered and white-dominant subculture of “pro” crafting. BCS is currently a one-person operation focusing on handmade leather crafting and fiber arts. I also experiment with restoring and repurposing old clothing, furniture, and household goods with sustainability and accessibility in mind. As a small brand, BCS celebrates the diversity of crafts and creators by highlighting guest artists and pieces, such as zines, prints, paintings, and more. For this flea market, I am teaming up with my roommate Mer Wade who creates zines and collages. Much of my merch is customizable, such as fitting belts and adding initials, which naturally lends itself to demonstrations for anyone interested. Supporting Beacon Craft Studio supports quality creativity and diversity in the crafting world. Thank you.

CBenjamin Art I am a queer artist who creates beautiful colorful fluid art paintings. All of my pieces are rich with color and contrast. I use my extra paint to create upcycled one of a kind jewelry and accessories. Using my extra paint to create beautiful jewelry & accessories lets me be a low waste artist and not have as big of an impact on the environment as other artists. Creating art and jewelry brings me a lot of joy. If I can bring a little bit of my joy into someones life with a painting or a beautiful piece of jewelry then I’ve done with I set out to do.

Cliteral Response – Sarah Campau Art for creative people. Specializing in mixing the old and new, as well as mixing media. What does that mean? I take thrift store paintings and add objects in them. I collage with found pictures. I add to old photographs. I stitch over postcards and found art. I make non-traditional cross stitch, on non-traditional mediums. I think art should be weird, and be made to stand-out. Queer, feminist and political messages. I’ve also been known to create the occasional zine. I’ve been making and selling art for years. I’ve just begun participating in local art shows and starting an internet presence.

jasmineheyward Hello – I read tarot with two awesome, queer-inclusive decks and create custom sigil art using watercolors and inks. For the tarot, I would offer readings at two levels of complexity (simple 5-card, and a deep dive of 7-10 cards). You can watch one of my simple tarot readings at the twitter link I dropped below, but that account is mostly random fan stuff so I wouldn’t publish it in the guide. For the sigil art I would bring prepped watercolor paintings that are simply color blends (there’s a good example in the runes and sigils highlight on my Instagram) and then design a sigil based on a customer’s need (such as staying calm during stressful work situations). The new sigil would be activated and painted onto an appropriate colored base. If there’s electricity I could bring a hair dryer to dry them right away, but if not I could have the customer come back in 30 or so minutes to pick it up. I would also love to sell zines that explain how to make your own sigil art — I am almost finished with a guide that I was going to put on social but it’d be way better as a print product.

Marx Jacobs Twas the night before the Boston Hassle Flea, when all through the Elks not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The merch was made by a lasercutter with care, in hopes that Marx Jacobs soon would vend there. The punks were nestled all snug in their beds, while visions of dancing bears danced in their heads. I make fashion accessories and homewares using a laser cutter. I try to express the anxieties of consumer culture in form, while embracing the preoccupations of popular and countercultures in subject matter. A combination of digital fabrication and handicraft techniques allows me to create objects that would make users of Pinterest dream of their Myspace days.

Singing Stones Jewelry I repair or restore antique and vintage pieces and contextualize them historically for people who may want them. For items that cannot be restored or repaired, I take them apart and make them into entirely new pieces. I also create new items utilizing parts purchased from other small businesses. I scour estates, yard sales, and flea markets for things that might otherwise end up in a trash heap. I do the best I can to keep reusable items out of the waste cycle and make art at the same time. My primary materials are sterling silver, gold filled/plated surgical steel, copper, bronze, brass, glass, and a variety of semi precious gems. I am starting a collaboration with a wood turner friend, Tim Rix of RixCraft, to combine the small left over pieces of hardwood from the items he makes and my sterling silver to create one of a kind jewelry. I make or carry earrings, necklaces, pendants, rings, bracelets, cuff links, tie bars, scarves, purses, wine charms and so much more. I will customize what I carry based on the theme of the market managers I work with. If you prefer only handmade pieces then I will bring only handmade piece, etc. Repairs, custom work, and verbal appraisals are available on site.
