Vines in the Ville has a wonderful line-up of unique vendors to complement our excellent wines. Take a look at their work before the fest.
Lexie Bianco is a Catonsville resident, art teacher, and the artist behind The Glass Goddess hand-painted glassware. An admirer of all things modern and bold, Lexie enjoys experimenting with new color combinations and coming up with new patterns. Her unique, hand-painted glasses are perfect for entertaining or just adding a splash of color to your kitchen or bar display. Glass Goddess glasses make wonderful wedding, shower, or holiday gifts and are fun to collect and mix and match!
Lighting artist Karen Gatzke, of Catonsville-based Salvage DesignWorks, creates retro/industrial style lamps out of salvage materials like gears, bike parts, beautiful vintage wood and other funky items. Many of her materials were found in Catonsville & Ellicott City from various abandoned buildings, dumpsters, and yard sales. These lamps make great gifts for people who just want a unique piece.
Mary Bliss is a local Baltimore artist who specializes in stained glass. She also makes wine charms and suncatchers that will be on display at Vines in the Ville.
While the main store can be found right across the street from the festival, owner Reggie Sajauskas of Objects Found will be bringing her unique shop to us! Objects Found Consignment Shop will be selling new and used items that complement wine. We are specially designing greeting cards and bags for your gift giving needs.

At The Natural Bar Soap Company, our handcrafted natural soaps begin with the selection of natural vegetable oils, butters, essential oils, and Certified 100% natural essential oils and scent blends. From our whimsically swirled natural soaps, colored only with natural plant powders and clays, to our "chunky" soaps featuring artistically embedded pieces of contrast-colored soap, each of our handmade soaps is a work of useful, natural soap art.
We are making some wine-infused soap for Vines in the Ville!

re-barrel - teaching old barrels new tricks
Todd Dring is a musician and woodworker with a love of all things wine. After multiple trips to California's wine country, he became intrigued not just with the wine, but the beauty and potential he saw in the barrels. He began hand crafting home furnishings from used local wine and bourbon barrels in his home woodshop. By recycling barrels Todd is able to bring a little bit of wine country into his neighbors' homes, such as lazy susans, chalkboards, and coat racks.
