Welcome to Meet the Vendors!
Please join us as we get to know the people behind the business.

Bremerton Central Lions Club
We had the privilege of meeting the Bremerton Central Lions Club at Bremerton's Blackberry Festival. We learned of all the programs they have that support their Kitsap County and Bremerton community. We also had a chance to talk to their past President who happened to be a vet, in fact, most of the volunteers are military veterans.
Karli Shanklin, the owner/artist of Pyrografika, creates woodburning art that is inspired by her multi-cultural background. We met her at the Annual Kennedy High School Crafts & Art Fair, where we took a closer look at her work. You'll find more of her artwork at: www.etsy.com/shop/karlishanklin
