Vino & Bling will put the sparkle in your wine! In 1999 Vino & Bling began as a hobby, when Sid's wife Nicole asked him to to personalize a wine glass for a gift, it was lacking something, they decided it need to sparkle. So they gathered some rhinestones and glue and created glasses with "bling". Then they created a process that allows you to wash the wine glasses in the dishwasher, they are 100% dishwasher safe!

The Hot, Messy, Drippy Lid Holder came out of necessity. Scott Clarkson was cooking one night and turned the lid upside down to set on counter. When he picked up the lid and burned himself he realized he could make something in his pottery class to hold the lid. The Lid Holder holds multiple lids while cooking, utensils, cookbooks, tablets or magazines. Outside of the kitchen it holds a book when reading or studying, a hot curling iron in the bathroom. Meet Scott at this year's show and buy the lid holder for your self and for the Chef in your life...great Christmas gifts!

Michael Frazier Designs: Beautiful handmade wooden furniture can be a welcome addition to any Central Valley Home and it is hard to find any better than the redwood folding tables from Michael Frazier Designs, designing and building each piece by hand using only farm grown red-wood from California Cascade to help protect our redwood forests.

Creating tables that are durable and functional with their ability to actually fold down to just six inches storing and moving them should come as no problem at all. Michael’s handmade custom tables and chairs can be seen in Hollywood movies such as “Kindergarten Cop” and “The Patriot” and have been shipped all over the world to customers in places such as a castle in England and a palace in Egypt.

One of the reasons that Michael’s tables are so durable and carry their own unique look is that he uses his own blend of Tung Oil which comes from a certain tree from China and is unique in its ability to dry quickly without leaving behind an oily residue, in-stead creating a tough satiny, waterproof coating that has made it especially valuable in paints, varnishes, linoleum, oilcloth and printing inks. Spending years experimenting with different blends Michael finally found the perfect one that will allow his furniture to last decades out in the sun creating an extremely durable piece of outdoor furniture.
