Crafty Bazaars at the Audubon Treehouse Coffee Shop


Yes indeed! Tina and Randy are hosting a weekly Crafty Bazaar every Tuesday night from 6 to 8 p.m. for the month of December. The Treehouse is located on 120 W. Merchant Street in Audubon, New Jersey.

This week, I dropped by and interviewed a few of the vendors: Megan Karetny, Jaclyn English, and Bob the Soap Man.  I love that the Treehouse is doing these weekly bazaars because we should support independent businesses as much as possible and especially independent artisans.
Designer, Jaclyn English at www.hergamejewelry.com had a collection of fun jewelry that looked like Lego pieces...and wait...they were made for Lego pieces. I know a lot of my friends are going to want the earrings and bracelets and she’s also making Lego necklaces. She had a large assortment of rings, too.  Check out her site.

Megan Karetny (Megan Made) had a nice selection of home-made stationary and wreaths, but the show stopper were her tee-shirt scarves, which she is modeling here. You can find Megan on her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Nutmegcreativecafe

Bob the Soap Man is also one of The Treehouse Coffee Barista’s and besides whipping up the best coffee selections, he makes his own soap that is sold at the Treehouse. Stop in and buy a bar. They smell yummy.

This Thursday night on December 11th from 6 to 7, The Treehouse is hosting an event called Dinner with Santa.Kids get to decorate a cookie with the purchase of 1 adult and 1 child dinner. Guests are welcome to take photos with Santa. He will not be posing in a big chair, but hanging out sipping coffee and munching on scones.

On December 16th, next Tuesday, Steampunk Granny (me) will be there selling Roof Oasis, the first book in her apocalyptic series. Think of Romeo and Juliette meet “The Walking Dead” written by Jules Verne.

Yep, lots of action and a thoughtful glimpse into the future where a mysterious tyrant controls the food and water distribution of a dying Earth. What are the long term effects of polluted oceans and eating genetically modified food? Find out in Roof Oasis.

There will be plenty of venders there with fine jewelry and crafts and Christmas is right around the corner, so come out on the 16th and shop.

Tina and Randy’s oldest son, Matteo, has a message for you all. The collection takes place next Thursday.


  1. I hope they continue doing this through next year. I'd love to join the bazaar with my knitted/crocheted baby items.
