Holiday Shopping ~ Virtually!

Farmstead Arts Center’s annual holiday shopping boutique is being held virtually this year due to Covid-19 restrictions.

The year’s boutique features eight New Jersey small business owners who are artists and crafters.

  • Are you looking for unique gifts for your loved ones?
  • Would you like to help small businesses this holiday season?

Click on the links above or following this section to view each vendor’s information and website.

You can also support Farmstead Arts by purchasing gift certificates which can be used for membership, art classes or for tickets to future performances.

Donations are also gratefully accepted. As Farmstead Arts’ continues to bear the significant impact of our necessary closure for on-site events and classes, your donation is critical. Your gift will help us sustain our operations so that we can welcome you back strong for years to come.

We hope to see you in person at the Farmstead in 2021!

Adornments by Loretta - Craft Jewelry

The tag line for my business is – unique bling bling. I think jewelry should inspire mirth and joy. I try to share this experience with my clients.

Earrings – Bracelets – Necklaces adornmentsbyloretta.com

Prices range from $20 – $85

Email questions to: loretta@adornmentsbylorretta.com

Each hand-crafted piece gives a different visual experience – whether crafted with sterling silver, gold, copper, or art wires. Materials used may include silk ribbons, macramé, and synthetic beading string. Strung objects range from semi-precious stones, to hand blown glass, faceted glass to vintage buttons.

Each piece captures a different mood and color palette.


Customer Critters By Deb - Unique, Hndcrafted Ceramics - ORDER BY DEC 1

A self-described animal nut, teaching artist Debbie Limoli displays her art at galleries and shows across the Northeast.  The works are called “CustomCrittersByDeb” as her work displays her passion for all creatures of nature. Her best ability for her self-taught art is to place personality and soul into each piece and make them affordable, handmade and one of a kind. Her hands crave clay!

As Debbie will be traveling in December, please order by December 1 to ensure delivery for the holidays.


Or, visit Debbie’s virtual Farmstead Art exhibit here.

For the original collages, Laura uses only glue and paper torn from magazines and old books. She does not use any paint, ink or digital manipulation; even the different shades of the book pages are due to the natural yellowing of the pages. Most of the pieces of paper are torn by hand, and the larger collages use hundreds of tiny scraps.

Parvathi Kumar Photography ~ Fine Art & Commercial Photography

Rather than taking photographs, I am usually taken by what I see, and only then try to uniquely capture and share the vision of my mind’s eye. My subject types range and may be located in various corners of the world, but in all cases I look for unusual perspectives and position my lens with care such that a strong composition emerges.
