Wonder whether that old knick-knack is worth anything? Do you love watching Antiques Roadshow?  Bring in something you’re curious about! The Forklift’s own Chris Melendez will offer advice about your antiques, including architectural salvage, ceramics, furniture, sterling silver, and vintage jewelry. Donations to Community Forklift are greatly appreciated. In addition to financial donations, we will also be collecting donations of vintage & folk jewelry, and sterling silver hollow ware & flatware at this booth.

Delia Mychajluk‘s art is an expression of thoughts and feelings about what she considers the “essentials” of things, i.e., life/death, growth, and the boundaries between the physical/spiritual worlds. Current favorite mediums include oil paint, photography and digital collage, wood and stone carving, plaster and cement over hardware cloth, & watercolor pencils on canvas.”

Joe Rogers is back again this year with his cryptic style paintings that often depicting iconic Madonnas, beast-like creatures, and, sometimes, darkly (and often female) religious images. However, the viewer should not miss Roger’s unique sense of humor that peeks through it all.
