Krafty Bits and bobs by shelley, shelley dickison

Hi, I’m Shelley from Krafty Bits and Bobs by Shelley. After living all over the world, we decided to make Coastal NC our home and have been settled here since 1998. After creating unique gifts for friends and family I decided to take the plunge into opening my own business about 4 years ago. I enjoy the challenge of creating personalized one of a kind Decorative Drinkware and Home items which include tumblers and wine glasses, signs and wall art. I also make T-shirt’s and recently started making onesie/tutu outfits for infants. I am currently dabbling in vegan earrings and bows with some other fun items in the mix. I have a Facebook store called @Krafty Bits and Bobs by Shelley and have been at the Salty Air Open Market for a few years and have found a home in the “Red Building”. I also have a selection of tumblers at The Boro Girls Boutique.


kreated by kymm, kymm lankford

Hi. My name is Kymm Lankford and my business is KreatedbyKymm. I am the sole creator but occasionally my husband Stu will help me sell my items. I make all kinds of ceramic fun! From child sized tea sets, vases, butter dishes, platters, baby shoes to one of a kind decorative items. I love to do custom work and especially love to personalize my creations.

I can be found on FB at http://facebook.com/kreatedbykymm, Instagram at http://instagram.com/kreatedbykymm, and my online shop is http://madewithlovebykymm.etsy.com.

I am a new vendor at the market and I am so excited to be a part of it! I live in the Star Hill area of Cape Carteret. We moved here when my husband retired from the Marine Corps coming up on 2 years ago. I have five grown children and 8 grandchildren and I also have two younger children who keep me busy everyday! Jacob is 6 and Madison is almost 2. I like to think they are keeping me younger. They are my full time *job* but if and when I have any free time I'm usually covered in clay. Creating is what I love to do.

I am really looking forward to becoming a part of the Salty Air Open Market. I look forward to becoming a part of this community!.


breezes delight, Terri byerly and caitlin byerly

We specialize in Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegan, Keto baked goods cakes, cookies, pies and breads. We have been selling at Salty Air Open Market for the last 9 months.

Breezes resides in Jacksonville NC after traveling all the way from Florida with a vision and a dream. We were not always a Gluten Free Bakery. We emerged from being a gluten loving adventure into gluten not being our friend. Our vision and dreams sat on the shelf until one day I realized that my passion was baking. How could I turn this passion into being a rocket scientist with learning how temperamental gluten free baking would be? After many failed attempts, almost ready to throw in the towel. I pushed forward and dragged out all of my beloved old tattered recipes and through trial and error Breezes became Breezes Delight Gluten Free. We pride ourselves on using only the finest ingredients, catering to our wonderful clients and their many food sensitivities allowing us all that one little bite of heaven.

Crystal Coast Mining, Ron and Dianne Faulkner

We are Dianne and Ron Faulkner, and we own and operate CRYSTAL COAST MINING! We have been at the Salty Air Open Market going on 4 years now. We have been inside the General Store, but this year we are moving to a spot outside on the East side of the Market. We will still offer the same material and services as we always have, at what we have been told are extremely reasonable prices. These items include rough stones, display pieces, collectors pieces, jewelry, and the one thing that started our whole adventure: Gemstone Mining! When we moved to the Raleigh area in 2001, where I worked as an Electrician, we went to the State Fair where they had a mining sluice set up, and Dianne was hooked. We moved to Hubert in approximately 2012, and we realized that to go mining, you had to drive approximately 5 hrs one way, and thought we should offer it at the coast. We started out doing birthday parties, and progressed every year till we are where we are today. During that process, we have retired, and we have learned to cut stones and set them in settings or wire wrap them!
We also have a Facebook group, where we post new items, discounts, events and other news. You can also find a link to sign up for our newsletter. We try not to send more than 2 a month. You can also buy from the group. We work hard to find the best deals, and pass those deals along to you. Just go to www.facebook.com/groups/crystalcoastmining.

fly me away creations, angela wilder

Hi! I’m Angela Wilder. I am a creative Artist that uses nature as my inspiration for creating my unique items! I have an Etsy shop, FlyMeAwayCreations that I bring out to the Salty Air Open Market at least two to three times a month. My husband, Chris also helps out at the market and with my shop. We have three children and live in Hubert, NC. My shop has a unique tool (3D printer) which helps me create items that can be a social spotlight in any room! I create unique planters for succulents or air plants. I am inspired by nature every day and being blessed by living near the ocean gives me the opportunity to find treasures to bring into my shop! I try to be creative in my designs for each planter by creating unique items that are from my childhood memories or from nature and animals! FlyMeAwayCreations has been a vendor since October, 2017 at the market and we enjoy working along with the other vendors and meeting new and exciting shoppers each time we are there. This year, our shop will be joining the market, and also trying a few vendor events within the community. Anyone can find the shop by following the link, which directs you right to the Etsy online shop. www.flymeawaycreations.com this is where you can see all the different items that I create.
