BELMAR, NJ — Handcrafted items for the fall holidays will be flourishing on Saturday, October 14 at the Pop-Up Artisan MarketPlace at Serenity by the Sea Too.

Illustrator and surface designer Stephanie Noto will display her hand-painted signs and other whimsically designed products for the home and for children. Working primarily with gouache and digital media, she explores color relationships and texture throughout her work —a true reflection of her love for painting, typography, book arts and storytelling.

The creations of crafter Beth Ottenstein will also be showcased, featuring a wide assortment of handmade wood crafts, hand-painted coasters, hot plates (trivets), wreaths, vases and candles, among a host of other holiday-themed items.
