EATURED VENDOR

Rossneau’s Garden Plot Elkton, KY

Starting from a dream, Mr. and Mrs. Ealom, mixed faith and ingenuity together to birth Rossneau’s Garden Plot. Established in 2000 on the border of Todd and Christian counties, they coined the term “Freshness with a Smile.” Even after losing his late wife Loretta, Mr. Ealom can still be found every Wednesday and Saturday at the Hopkinsville Downtown Farmers Market. The Ealoms started Rossneau’s Garden Plot after Mr. Ealom lost his management position at a local furniture company. From that point they decided to become an independent business owners. With limited agriculture experience, the Ealoms connected with the University Extension services for help. They then constructed a 1,000 square feet garden plot by hand, using black plastic and drip irrigation. With that system in place, they began to grow. He acknowledged that the road has been rough, but the smiles he gets from his customer’s faces keeps him enthusiastic about providing fresh organically grown vegetables. He’s also known for his famous Loretta Canning Products, which was inspired by his late wife, Loretta Ealom. Mr. Ealom is overjoyed to be able to serve the greater Hopkinsville area “Freshness with a Smile.” Rossneau Ealom 270-265-5250 ealomgardenplot2007@hotmail.com

EATURED VENDOR

The Glass Moustache

My name is Dave Russell. I first started working with stained glass in 2005 when we lived on the Mississippi gulf coast. But after losing all of my tools and glass stock in Hurricane Katrina, I took a short hiatus. Last year with renewed interest, I started cutting glass again. I converted my garage into a workshop and re-purchased some of what was lost in the storm: a diamond saw, glass grinder, various glass cutters and a bottle cutter. Initially, I made gifts for my children and grandchildren to freshen my skills. I joined the Farmers Market near the end of the 2013 season and found that I was warmly received by the other vendors and townspeople. At my table, you will see a variety of handmade glass items. I enjoy making lightcatchers that will cast whimsical colors into your room. Some items are thoughtful, such as awareness ribbons for breast cancer and support for the troops, simple crosses in a variety of colors and hearts made with ruby red water glass. If you don't see something you like, let's talk. I also do custom work. Children's items such as Dr. Who's red bow tie, Noah's Ark and opalescent hair bows are some of my favorites to make. As a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals, I make an sun catcher using rough-rolled red cathedral glass, as well as a UK light catcher using wispy blue water glass in the University of Kentucky school colors. New additions this year are things made from recycled or repurposed bottles. Planters from old wine bottles are popular. My bottle lamps are a great addition to your bar or man-cave. And, of course, I always have a variety of glass moustaches. Dave Russell TheGlassMoustache.com www.facebook.com/ TheGlassMoustache
