True American Artisans

 Every time I bike down Bahia Vista, going west I look in on Ed Bender's Mechanic Shop. Well, it used to be his shop until he passed away a couple of years ago. Today I was in for a pleasant surprise when I saw these crafted items through the fence. When I got to the open gate Mrs Bender motioned me in. I looked around and the place is transformed. 

 True American Artisans have set up shop. Here are a few of the photos I took, but check out their Facebook Page by going to True American Artisans. They have many more beautiful pictures. 



 Rectangular or various shapes cutting boards made from marble.

 Pottery

 Driftwood pencil holders

 I couldn't figure out what these men are made of...

 Basket weaving

A couple brought in more handcrafted treasures.
