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.
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.
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.

In 2014, Ryan Rickey was looking for a way to make some extra income. It didn’t take him long to decide to sell jerky at the farmer’s markets in Portland, OR. Thinking it would be catchy and easy to remember Ryan chose the name iJerkyGuy, after everyone called him “the jerky guy”.
After vending at a couple local festivals, Ryan wanted to try out bigger venues. For a year and a half, he traveled further away from Portland. By the fall of 2015, he went to sell at The Texas State Fair, where he met Guillermina Moncada, who became his wife and business partner.
What started as just being neighbors at the fair, quickly grew into a deeper friendship for Ryan and Guillermina. They realized that they were both solo entrepreneurs that could complement and accompany each other. Together they started a new business adventure, combining their talents, and different backgrounds.
Today, they spend most of their time learning how to improve their business, looking for better venues, and growing as a new family.
