Meet the Makers: August & November 2023

Meet the Maker #7: August 19th

Featuring the one and only, Gabby of Simply Tilton jewelry!

Gabby, Simply Tilton

Hi, I’m Gabby! I started Simply Tilton in the fall of 2018 as a hobby and creative outlet while in grad school. I started with metal stamped jewelry and since then have expanded to different mediums, including polymer clay and now resin!

Shop her collection of Preserved Flower Jewelry (earrings and necklaces!) in-store and online!

👈 Check out these bright, beautiful Orange Fleabane Earrings in our online shop, today!

If you have been to any markets I hope you have had the pleasure of saying hi to Mike! He has given up countless weekends and evenings to help me with this dream I have, supporting me every step of the way! He is my biggest cheerleader and hype man, the best support system, a listening ear, someone I can bounce all my crazy ideas off of, my set up and break down crew, and so soooo much more!

2023 was an extra special year for Gabby: she married her best friend!

When she’s not creating jewelry, she can be found exploring the outdoors with these two 👉 (her husband Mike & cute-as-a-button pup, Moose!).

✨LAST✨ Meet the Maker #8: November 11th

Featuring 3 talented Maine women:

Bailey of Bailey Debiase Ink

Jen of Miss Moonmaker Maine

Art by Alexis 🎨

Be the creator of the lens you look through, see your surroundings with the curiosity of a child, zoom in on the beauty of simplicity, and take in the nuances of day-to-day life because they have so much to offer.

Alexis excels at the intricacy of painting, whether that be on a canvas or the side of a building – the scale doesn’t matter. We’re lucky to carry some of her beautiful work in the forms of framed and unframed prints, as well as a selection of her originals!

For me, being an artist is to train your eyes to observe rather than to just look.

Bailey Debiase Ink ✍🏼

Bailey is not only our Portland assistant manager, but an incredible artist herself! Her love of nature, outdoor adventures, & her hoME is a strong inspiration behind her work.

These intricate Fish Stickers are available in-store!

Email 📧 if interested (you’ll reach Bailey herself!).

It feels funny to say that it’s going to be hard to say goodbye to this big recycling bin ☺️ I’ll be excited to visit it in its new home, wherever it ends up! Working on a surface this big, and using a different medium than what I normally work with, made this project so much fun.

Miss Moonmaker Maine 🛁

As a busy single Mom and entrepreneur Jen believes in the power of a steamy, relaxing soak in a tub; that it can help you tackle many of life’s paths ahead. Sometimes doing less is doing more – for YOU!

I started making artisan, hand-made bath fizzies in 2008 when my son was just a year and a half old. My son suffered from chronic sinus infections and always had a stuffy head, nose and chest. When my son was born I became more aware of the products I used…I became more earth friendly with the use of my products and what we ingested/put on our skin.

👆Bath Fizzies available ONLINE!👆

👇Skin Salves available IN-STORE!👇

“Miss Moonmaker believes in self care and the sometimes forgotten art of bathing.”

And that’s a wrap for our 2023 Meet the Maker Series! We hosted 17 of our Maine Makers over 8 different dates throughout the summer and fall, leading up to celebrating 20 years of business in Bath (wow! 🎉). We had so much fun hearing the stories behind the products, sharing YOUR specific questions with each talented Maker, and we hope you had fun, too!
