    Best item would be a painting by a local Baltimore, MD artist-Shawn Theron. He is a self-taught artist that works at the American Visionary Museum and is fantastic!

    I love the wire wrapped stone pendants that my friend made me.

  5. A 9 foot long pine console table that was made from 2" reclaimed wood from an abandoned railroad depot. It is stunning in an atypical dark finish with saw marks from being cut 100+ years ago.

    I make hand crafted snowmen on a wood base with tree, pickett fence, floral picks and so on at Christmas time to sell to make extra Christmas money. In the Fall I make pumpkin scarecrows out of fabric and embellish with spanish moss and more to make the money I need to make the snowmen :)

    While I was traveling in Ghana, we visited and artist's market in Kumasi. I got a beautiful hand made Djembe. I even got to watch the master carvers teaching the apprentices how to hollow out the drums.

    I bought this really cool handmade carving while I was in Thailand a few years ago. I have hung t above the door in every place I have live since then. I absolutely love it! Those are super cool frames that would look awesome with the art I already havehung in our bedroom, so I think Ill keep them in mind if I dont win!

    The best hand made item I purchased is an old shelf that was made from old barn wood. It was painted green, I sanded it, painted it white, and distressed it more… NOW! It's perfect!!!

    The best handmade item i have purchased is a very unique, somewhat odd, mobile from a yard sale. I've never seen anything like it.
