Food Vendor

Snack Concessions by the Circle of Life Cooperative Preschool

The Circle of Life Cooperative Preschool will be vending snack concessions as a fundraiser. The Circle of Life Cooperative Preschool seeks to provide a child-centered and parent-involved preschool program based on the foundation of the Unitarian Universalist Seven Principles and a belief that the family should be involved in their child’s development. This program for 3-4 year old children enhances the intellectual, emotional, physical, social and creative development of children within the preschool community.

Raven’s Own

Take the quirky, the spiritual, the kinky, and the beautiful. Throw it in a pot, mix it together, and you have a hint of what we offer at Raven’s Own. From jewelry to japery, from tools to tomfoolery, you’ll find it here! Selling handmade jewelry, curios, and divination tools made of chain maille, polymer clay, and more. Offering readings from our in-house divination system, the Kahina Stones.

Wizard’s Tower

We are Artisans & Purveyors of unique high-quality essentials for working magic; clothing, jewelry, magic wands and accessories. We are specialists to the Intermediate & Advanced Magical & Ritual Practitioners.

Doc Stone Studios

Doc Stone Studios bringing you the finest in hand crafted leather goods with a steam punk flair. Everything from goggles to jewelry and handmade bags, leather pouches with an eclectic and finished style.

Vagabond Metalworks

Vagabond Metalworks offers one of a kind, affordable, easy to wear hand-forged masks and jewelry. We use metal here to evoke the natural landscape from which the ore emerged. Some pieces are very bold, shouting of earthquakes, while others whisper of quiet fields of rustling grass, or paths through autumn woods. The range of jewelry calls up all the world, asking you to explore it, and reminding you that if you can get there, it’s tough enough to go with you. Like any good traveling companion, these pieces are a bit eccentric- each is entirely different from every other piece I have ever created. Each has their own personality, as organic and hard to define as each of your friends.

Wild Saffron Photography

Capture the beauty, magic and mystery of the Ball – make a memory with Wild Saffron Photography! Offering different options to suit your tastes and budget, professional boudoir photographer Sharon Strickland will be taking posed event photos with her traveling studio. Sharon’s approach uncovers each person’s beauty and she loves telling their stories through imagery. She is detailed in her approach capturing your favorite features and making you feel comfortable enough to express your true essence. With class, sass and lightheartedness, Sharon uses her camera to help others see their own beauty.

Zinzeudo Infinite Wellness

We also have an online and physical shop in Rosedale, MD that offers crystals, aromatherapy and herbal products, candles, books and ritual supplies.
