Meet Noella’s Paper Beads Jewelry Creations. Noella’s necklaces and earrings are all handcrafted by herself right in her garage. Honestly if I didn’t look close enough I wouldn’t even realize they were made of paper.
Meet Oog’s Nest. While I’m classifying them into my jewelry category they are more than just this. Most popular for their para-cord survival bracelets, they also do a range of products from hand etched glasses to cards.
Bath & Body
Meet NS Candles. Their candles are 100% made in Trinidad and come in a variety of scents and packaging (square or round glass jars) to suit any lifestyle. I particularly loved the citronella candles nestled within small clay pots, which made for a very earthy look.
Meet Eco-Truffles Lavish Body Treats. With a wide array of natural products from soaps, masks and clays, shampoos and body butters, you can find definitely find something you like. Located in the Point Lisas district, with an online shopping option or friendly faces at your nearest local market, this company has been making a name for itself and provides an alternative to the harsher chemical compositions of store bought products.
Meet Classy Craft. Sabrina hand-makes cosmetic and storage bags, shoe bags and even brush rolls. She uses a variety of colours and patterns and you can even customize the size you want.
Now there were numerous other vendors to add to each category and my most favourite category, the food was most present but I was too busy sampling and enjoying to take any pictures.
