Marsol Friday Market by the Pier

Our wonderful master herbalist will be back this week! We welcome Ricardo Mazcal as he returns from a working, month-long vacation. We are hoping our other vendors will be well enough to join us this coming week. The hot days can bring some strange maladies!

You have heard of beach/sea glass, yes? How about “beach tile”? These delightful pieces are parts of often hand-painted tiles from kitchens, floors, vanities, and backsplashes – anywhere you can find tile work. After the sea has finished smoothing sharp edges and corners, a wave may drop a shard at your feet. Always keep a lookout when you are walking the beach for these unique bits of someone’s home somewhere! Nobody knows how far a piece of tile can and does travel. They are endlessly fascinating. Check the “Beach Booty” table for a couple of rare finds made into charming pendants.

Elizabeth, not content with just making more glamorous ‘Dead Dolls,’ she has come up with some delightful ideas for air fresheners – no fake pine trees for this artist. Connect to hang nearly anywhere on tiny clothespins. They are different and smell clean and fresh.

If you have silk scarves you never use anymore, please bring them to Marcia and have her make something for you; don’t throw silk away!! That includes old silk neckties, especially the really, really wide ones – they are heaven to work with!

The Marsol Friday Market by the Pier is open from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm all year-round.
