Support Local Artists

Not only do we want to support our local businesses located in and around Lafayette County Florida we would also like to support our local artists. These can include musicians, writers, painters, and handcraft artists as well. Most of these artisans will not have a shop where you can go and purchase their work. If you are a local artists living and/or working within Lafayette County Florida please use our CONTACT US form and let us know about you, your work and where you sell your items.

Handcraft Artists

revisionmayoAnother Local Business that was to be attending the Pioneer Day as a vendor called ReVision. They have a Facebook page:
Almost all of our items are handmade and are made from 95% recycled materials. We reclaim lumber from barns and old houses and recycle it into new creations. The lumber from these barns and houses are from Florida’s early lumber heydays, so most of it is over 100 years old. Primarily we make birdhouses and potting benches, but we have made gardening totes and pallet signs. Each item is unique because we build with the materials we have collected not purchased. We feel that we are doing a small part to preserve our rich heritage as native Floridians and to educate others about it as well.
