HELLO! I’M CHELSEA BUMGARNER, OWNER AND CREATOR OF SWEET THYME DESIGN. I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN A SMALL NEW ENGLAND TOWN BEFORE RELOCATING TO AUSTIN, TX FOUR YEARS AGO. TO SAY I LOVE ANTIQUING IS PUTTING IT LIGHTLY. I COME FROM A LONG LINE OF “ANTIQUERS”, AND LIKE TO THINK IT IS IN MY BLOOD.
Sally Taylor is an East Texas native who grew up in the small town of Atlanta. She and her family moved to Taylor in 2013 from Baldwinsville, NY. She currently owns and operates Art Off Center Ceramic Studio which opened its doors in October 2015.
Our journey with handcrafted jewelry started in 1984, on a trip from Brazil to Nicaragua and ending in the US. We learned on our way how to work with wire and metal.
I create hand pressed copper art. This is an old art form known as repousse & chasing, but unlike traditional repousse, which uses hammers & punches, I work with ball styluses. Once pressed, a patina is applied to the copper to create a rich, aged effect. No 2 pieces will ever be alike! Pieces can also be personalized to create heirloom quality gifts for special occasions, or just special people! Let me create you a piece that will become an heirloom!

I am a mom of two beautiful and hilarious little girls and a wife to a fun loving man, Micah. We also have an energetic pug named Mignon.
We moved to Georgetown by way of Houston and New Orleans. After lots of traveling with work and long hours as a interior restaurant designer, I decided it would be best for our family to take a break from the hustle and bustle and be a stay at home mom. With my girls growing up, I felt it was time to revitalize my designer skills. Turquoise Tulip is what I have been dreaming about for years and it’s finally here!!!
Texas Olive Ranch: A Family Tradition
Jim Henry and his family not only believe in producing the highest quality of olive oil, they believe in doing it the right way. That means sticking to our roots and not forgetting the family traditions and values that got us to where we are today.
Texas Olive Ranch is a family owned business in every sense of the word. Whether it’s Jim’s son Josh, also known as “the wrangler”, running the olive press that results in the finest olive oil in Texas, or Jim out in the orchard caring for the trees with his own two hands. Everything the Henry family does has the end goal of serving you the highest quality olive oil possible. We don’t cut corners or take shortcuts. We believe our quality is what has grown our small family business to where it is today and is what keeps our loyal customers coming back.
Shieldmaiden Designs is the creative endeavor of Julie Clawson who has taken her passion for making and channeled it into metal and stone. She launched Shieldmaiden Designs in early 2015 as a place to sell her handmade jewelry and décor. Inspired by the stories we tell and the magic of the natural world, her creations shape metal and stone into reflections of those tales and beauty. Drawn to myths and legends, the name Shieldmaiden Designs came from her love of Eowyn, the Shieldmaiden of Rohan, from The Lord of the Rings. The need to create and design items of beauty was her way of breaking free from the Shieldmaiden’s fear of living in a cage and contributing nothing to the world. To that end, she uses her hand (literally just one since she was born missing her lower left arm) to create. From fabricating and soldering jewelry, to carving designs in wax and casting them in silver, to shaping and polishing stones, she involves herself in every step of the jewelry making process. Shieldmaiden Designs has slowly grown over its first year, showcasing in a few venues to great response with many more shows planned for the upcoming year.
