SIRENS ARTISAN VILLAGE
Each year, Sirens on the Mountain offers a place to showcase the art, artistry and goods fashioned by talented women (and men!) here in the high country and beyond. Make sure to take some time during the festival to check out the Artisan Village. We are so pleased to present to you the vendors of Sirens on the Mountain 2019 - some new, some returning friends, all extremely tuned in and talented.
ALSO - please make sure to bring CASH to Sirens on the Mountain. There is no ATM on site, and the extremely unreliable cell phone reception makes credit card sales next to impossible. We encourage you to support these talented vendors - so please swing by the bank on your way out to Todd! We thank you for your understanding. (The high country is beautiful but the remote setting does present challenges on occasion!)
FolkLore Boone, NC - Lydiyah Sea will be bringing her glorious spirit and stunning offerings to the festival again this year - yahoo!!!

Todd's Table - Todd’s Table - our local farm stand run by Blackburn Community Outreach -is a constant heartbeat in our small community of Todd. We are so pleased they will join our festival this year.

Take an opportunity this year at Sirens to release stress and gain clarity!
High Country Apothecary - High Country Apothecary was started by Fitz in his bathroom in 2013. While looking for beard oil and other beard grooming products, Fitz was hard pressed to find anything of high quality that was affordable. The solution was simple - create the products he could not find. High Country Apothecary has now evolved to include a wide range of products, from beard oil to scented candles to hand salves and more.

Diane enjoys experimenting with other mediums and often participates in workshops such as batik, mosaics, leather, paper making and cacao.
