Business: Dew Drop In
Location: 114 N. High St., Millville
Owner: Todd and Amanda Fahrer, of Millville
Dew Drop In brings in local artists who do just about everything - pottery, handmade items, artwork, leather crafts, jewelry and woodworking. We also have some antiques and vintage pieces.
We're open to artists coming in who are looking for space to showcase their stuff.
We do live music and events every month, usually throughout the weekend. Our website, dewdropin.com1, has our calendar of events, as well as items for sale.
We currently have alpaca products made by a local farmer. She raises the alpacas and makes scarves, socks, sweaters, purses and book bags from their wool.
We have a custom leather crafter, and he does dog collars, key chains, purses and cuff bracelets. He can custom make anything and put any design on a piece of leather.
Two artists from Clay College make an assortment of pottery. There is a clay wedding cake for use at a wedding or for display. They also make bowls, mugs and coffee cups.
Our jewelry includes items handmade from silverware, glass-beaded pieces, handmade broaches and items out of clay.
Everyone we have exhibiting in here is pretty much from the local area.
Woodworking includes wooden centerpieces and inspirational blocks, ones that have messages and sayings such as hope and love.
Among our antiques and collectibles we have a coal shuttle and a Singer sewing machine. There is always something different to see in that section. Right now we have a baby grand piano and some pieces of furniture.
We also stock homemade candles, hand-poured soy candles.
Entry: We always kind of were looking for antiques and collectibles and started with a small shop in the Village on High.
We moved to a bigger location so we could bring more people in, especially up-and-coming artists who need to be seen and get known.
We also needed more space for bigger items. We couldn't fit furniture or a piano in our other space.
The future: We'll have a wine tasting on Sept. 7, and on Sept. 22 we'll have a dog show here with the SPCA. They'll have pets available for adoption. A local groomer, Adrienne's Pet Grooming, will donate a gift basket, one of the prizes to be raffled at the event. On Sept. 28, we'll host a Red Hatters tea party.
