Freeland Art Shack – “My stones are mostly all gathered on the western shores of Whidbey Island. My favorite type of stone to work with would be Concretions aka Clay Babies, Mud Babies or Fairy Stones. But since they are hard to come by I’ll work with any type of stone as long as the texture is smooth enough. I paint intricately detailed designs that often have sea urchin like textures when completed. From painting, to drying, to my lengthy resin process, it usually takes 4 weeks to fully finish a piece, sometimes longer. Each piece gets a tremendous amount of time and love for a quality look and finish.


Bunnies on Fire: Calcite indoor fountains, cranberry garnet schist, lizardite.


P & D Agate: “We are a family owned business since 1990. We specialize in rocks, minerals, crystals and beads and jewelry.”


Brittney Muzzy Lynn:“Most of what I have to offer is material found within the US and handmade jewelry!”


Scott’s Rock & Gem: Scott Blair, of Scott’s Rock & Gem has been a fine quality mineral dealer for over 25 years. Scott does his own lapidary work, and ranges the West, on collecting trips to bring self-collected and hand crafted specimens into his market mix. The business also showcases lots of worldwide minerals, serving collectors of all ages and walks of life with one of the widest varieties of affordable and highly collectible crystals, minerals, and fossils on the show circuit today.
