~Liberty Mason~

First of all....don't you love her name?  
I do.
So, I would like to introduce you to Liberty.

Here is a little bit about her handmade skin products...

Drawing from centuries-old traditional medicine for healthy, satiny Skin and Spirits, Liberty Mason, Founder of Mitar Naturals, spent the last 10 years perfecting her recipes to create a line of absolutely amazing, nourishing soap and body products.  Incorporating such ingredients as Pure Essential Oils, Cocoa and Shea Butters, Olive, Tamanu, Evening Primrose, Neem, Karanja, and Meadowfoam oils (among dozens of others), Mitar Naturals' soaps, scrubs and other body products are top of the line, premium products for the ultimate skin-loving experience.
"It's important to me," says Liberty, "that people understand that what they put ONTO their skin gets INTO their skin (common examples of this are nicotine and morphine patches or steroid creams) and that they realize a buck saved now on an inferior, chemically derived product will cost them a lot more in the long run.  I create my entire line from all natural food-grade ingredients (that means they're completely safe for Human consumption) - many of which are Certified Organic - to ensure that the maximum benefit of Mother Nature's apothecary is easily available to everyone.  We all come into contact with an insane amount of toxins every day . . . I created these soaps to not only cleanse the body, but to detox it, to nourish it, and to - additionally -  (I admit I'm a bit of a hippie here) soothe and nourish the soul."
Take care of yourself.  Keep it Pure.  Keep it Natural.  Keep it  Essential.
Some of our top sellers:  The Ultimate Detox Bar,  The Exotic Butter Bar,  Aloe-Oatmeal-Cranberry,  Essential Mint,  Cleopatra's Milk and Honey,  Goddess Glow,  Sweet Cheeks Baby,  Skin Soothe,  Man Bar no 1.
Our new and improved website ( is currently under construction - Should you visit there and still find our "holder page", remember:  WE ARE ALL ABOUT SERVICE!  We love what we do, we believe in what we do, and we're very interested in sharing it with you!  Please feel free to email Liberty directly at any time with questions or comments! .

Wait until you 
smell them in person...

And i love that she is a little bit of a hippie
 because deep down i am too. ;D

:: Shawn Winters ::

Flying W Forge

Flying W Forge was created by Shawn and Nikkole
Winters. The name was inspired by Nikkole's
Flight attendant career and Shawn's love of Blacksmithing. They found a way to put together Nikkole's obsession with home decor and Shawn willingness to impress her. They specialize in Custom Ornamental Iron and welcome special orders.

I also have the privilege of being Shawn's aunt!
Nikki is an added bonus thanks to marriage and she is a
really good bonus.  I'm lucky like that.:D
They are an awesome team and Shawn's work with 
metal is amazing!!  As well as wood, and anything else
he puts his hands on.  He's one talented guy.

I am so excited to have them as part of the Marketplace this year.

Here's a little sampling of what he does...

this one shawn made for his second great love,
their little girl, quincy...

this was created for a mother who lost her son...

Like I said...full of talent!!
