Posted to Community Market of the Kennebunks by Karen Winton
Last Saturday brought another beautiful weather day, and another very busy Community Market day. People were enjoying their coffee and talking about all the various purchases they made or planned to make. Lots of positive comments about the quality and the wide variety of the available products. We did have a scare however; someone thought that Mr. and Mrs. CMOK were raffle prizes!
This week’s featured vendor is a new vendor this year and one that has already proven very popular with market-goers.
Sumi Scarves from Kennebunk, Maine
Artisan Jill Roberts utilizes modern, eco-friendly and upcycled materials to bring the beautiful, ancient art of water marbling to the 21st century.
Onlookers crowd around to watch 'artists' of all ages and abilities design their own one-of-a-kind handmade water marbled silk scarf. Each guest applies acrylic paint to the special water bath; floating the colors in her homemade, custom-built water marbling tray; and uses techniques and tools provided to create the design to their liking. It is a true 'WOW' moment when the finished scarf is held up for all to see.
Stop by and enjoy this unique experience!
This Saturday, June 16th the Market will be a little different. There will be numerous activities relating to the Chamber of Commerce’s summer kick-off maritime festival called LAUNCH! The Waterhouse Center location will have a LAUNCH event plus the Community Market event. The number of our market vendors will be slightly fewer and there will be no raffle that day. (Mr. and Mrs. CMOK will take this opportunity to visit with their grandkids!) However, join us again on Saturday, June 23rd when the Market will be back in full force, complete with the raffle, and Mr. and Mrs. CMOK.
