Lynn Wenger Paintings and Crafts
Owner: Lynn Wenger
First launched in: 2017
Why did you launch your business? I kept knitting baby mittens and didn’t know enough babies to give them to, so I decided to sell them.
What will you be selling at the holiday market? I will be selling baby mittens and ornaments, whimsical crotcheted and felted animals, paintings and other gift items.
What makes your business unique? My business is very eclectic. I dabble in all types of crafts. I also paint in watercolor and acrylic. I like to put a bit of whimsy in my art.
Where do you get your inspiration? Much of my inspiration comes from nature. I’ve made many felted woodland animals. But I also rely on my imagination. The more I create the more ideas I get.
What is your favorite thing about the holidays? I like spending time with friends and family and eating wonderful meals together.
What is your signature item? My items are so unique. People should come, take a look and see what speaks to them.
