We are excited to announce the return of the Muggles Market, just in time for Valentine’s Day! This year’s theme is Muggles Market: Love and Plunder, combining our adoration of pirates and love. As usual, you have a wonderful opportunity to get to know our artists, writers, artisans, and entertainment through our Muggles Market Spotlights.
Sam Kearns of Sea Bear Art is a new artisan with the Muggles Markets. We asked them a few questions about their life, work, and what treasures they’ll be bringing to Muggles Market: Love and Plunder.
Please tell us all about the plunder you’ll be bringing to Muggles Market.
For Muggles Market we will have a wide variety of clay figures including gnomes, familiar characters, gemstone ladies, fae gardens, gnome homes, mushroom jars, succulent wall hanging, and mushroom lights.
How did you get started making your glorious plunder?
As a child I was always creative, and even went to school for Art. In 2020 I went full time as an artist bring magic all over North Carolina and even as far as Alaska.
What’s an item you are bringing that you are really excited about?

What else would you like everyone to know about your wares?
