Kelley Moon from Johns Creek, GA., took to art as soon as she was able to hold a crayon. She was a design major; many of her abilities are self-taught. Kelley is now creating unique custom belt buckles made from beads, crushed glass, shredded crystals and rhinestones. Designs range from crosses and fleur de lis to collegiate and animals – no two designs are alike but all are fun & showcase lots of bling!
Judy, Donna, and Linda began making handmade scarves in Panama City, Florida, using various yarns and ribbons from all over the world that they FINALLY found after countless hours of searching in stores, yarn shops, and on-line. Accessories make any outfit special. Their handmade scarves, belts and accessories do just that and more!
Their scarves have evolved from a simple scarf that they intended to give to family and friends as Christmas gifts to become the unique, artistic creations they are now selling to boutiques, specialty shops, and at shows. The use of sari silk, hand cut by women in India and Nepal, allows their small, female-owned business in Panama City, Florida, to help other women clear around the world have a way to feed their families. These women cut saris made of beautiful silks into strips and wind them into skeins to be used in needlework and craft projects. The purchase of their finished product gives them a personal income and a chance to better their situations. We like that!
The Calico Arts and Crafts Show is a one-stop shopping extravaganza
for Southwest Georgia and the surrounding area. From ornamental
iron home and garden décor, to painted glass and antiques, to
whimsical painted children’s furniture and accessories…it’s all
together in one location. Approximately 200 vendors featuring
fine arts, handmade crafts and hand decorated items exhibit their
lovingly made items so you’ll feel really good supporting the
local economy while acquiring unique gifts for your friends and
family. In addition to the arts and crafts, Calico offers a wide
selection of mouth-watering food and refreshments as well as clogging
performances. The show has become an established, highly anticipated
event held each March and November. The Calico Shows are held
at Spence Field in Moultrie, Georgia, just 4 miles Southeast of
Highway 319 on Highway 133. Free parking and easy access make
it easy to start having fun immediately.
The exceptional quality of the arts and crafts is ensured through
a jury process which receives approximately 500 applications from
not only local craftsman, but creative artisans from across the
country. The shows are advertised by television, radio, flyers,
newspapers, magazines, and the internet. It is an excellent chance
for you, the vendor, to sell your goods to a wide cross section
of the Southeast. Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of the
excitement, profit and fun!
We look forward to seeing you soon!
