Mistarian RosesOn an artistic retreat, Julie created the first of what has become our line of Mermaid jewelry.  This dazzling bracelet was a vibrant blue with clear drops…which reminded us of water glistening on a mermaid’s tail.  The green versions also remind us of a mermaid’s tail or dew drops sparkling in the grass as the sun rises.  This line of bracelets, earrings, and necklaces is made of high quality Czech and Japanese beads handwoven on silk thread and finished with sterling silver.  Stop by and let us know what you see in these pieces!

COMMUNITY PARTICIPANTS:
WSU Master Gardeners – As always, your friendly Master Gardeners will be at the market to answer all of your gardening questions and plant problems!  Do your best to stump them! They are located at the Market info booth, and are just hanging out there to talk with you — so take advantage of their time!  If you have a plant in question, bring in a sample or photo for them to look at.

Bremerton Farmers Market – our Market info booth will be located near the center of the market. Stop by and talk with the Market Manager about volunteering at the market, or perhaps becoming a Community Member for just $50 / year.  We will also be selling seeds this year, with the bulk of the proceeds staying with the market — all seeds are just $3 / packet.  And don’t forget — if you need to get tokens (in place of cash), just ask the Market Manager, and she can get you taken care of right away!



Thank you to the City of Bremerton, and specifically to the Parks & Recreation Department,
for all of their help this year!
Thank you also to Carol Sue Rogers & Windermere for their generous donation & support!
