Annual Holiday Craft Fair

Each December, the EBMS Crafts Fair brings together vendors from across the Bay Area. 2020, of course, means that we are unable to gather as we would like to peruse unique hand crafted gifts from our talented community. To keep just a bit of the tradition going, we are using this page to promote those vendors who would have been there in person, but whose lovely goods you can still acquire over the internet. Please consider supporting these makers as you check things off your holiday list this season. 




I am Jennifer Linderman, mom of 7th grader Sophie Linderman, and am a local mixed media artist and art teacher (now online) with a passion for drawing and painting human and animal portraits, traditional botanic art, and basically anything else which peaks my interest. I love experimenting with a wide array of art mediums such as colored pencil, ink, markers, watercolor, pastels…just to name a few! I have art print calendars, tote bags with a collage print of some of my female portraits on them, a coloring book, and some coloring sheets listed in my “shop” section.

Sticks and Stones is a collection of wearable words and thought provoking images printed on tees, hoodies and accessories allowing both the wearer and viewer to be encouraged. Our holiday sale is 20-75% and some items marked down to $10.00. Love More or More Love design available for men, women and children.

Lemon Lime by Christina creates simple diffuser jewelry and accessories for those who love essential oils or natural fragrances. Each jewelry piece is crafted with a natural lava stone or wood piece that will hold your favorite scent for up to 4 days. Simply place a drop or two of essential oil or other fragrance oil onto your fingertips and gently massage the oil onto the lava stone or wood and you can carry your favorite scent with you all day long.

Lemon Lime by Pam sews, crochets and paints to create Fun, Funky and Colorful Aromatherapy Gifts. All items are one of a kind, no two are the same. They are unique and the Stinky Misfits will make you laugh with their Snarky Inspirational quotes! Each item is created for aromatherapy, if you wish to add essential oil. I try to use up-cycled materials where I can. I hope my creations put a smile on you face!
