Deep, dark maple syrup straight from a Pennsylvania forest. Warm notes of oak, toffee, and caramel from an American oak barrel. A subtle kick of Bluebird Distilling’s craft bourbon or rye whiskey from the devil’s cut in the barrel's wood. You haven’t had the maple syrup experience until you’ve tried bourbon or rye whiskey barrel-aged syrup.

Turkish-inspired copper decorative items

After spending 17 years toiling at General Electric, John Akkus left the company in 1989 and began using copper and brass to produce handcrafted engraved designs. Nearly 30 years later, Akkus Silver Touch is the standard in artisan metalworking. Using a woodturning lathe redesigned for metal spinning and his own self-taught techniques, John creates beautiful jewelry, ornaments, vases and decorative plates.
Every item features unmatched craftsmanship with silver-plated designs that positively shine.

Born in Turkey and now residing in Virginia, John understands how important his customers are, even learning new techniques in order to fulfill requests. In addition to welcoming people handling his work, he puts on live metal spinning demonstrations at nearly every Sugarloaf festival, allowing enthusiasts to see the process and passion up close. Going on three decades of living the dream, John is showing no signs of slowing down. See how magical silver can be by visiting John in his Akkus Silver Touch booth and adding a truly custom piece to your home or wardrobe.

Love hats of all shapes and sizes? Check out Carole Amper’s incredible collection of vintage-inspired fedoras, cloches and more at a Sugarloaf Crafts event. Based in the heart of the Hudson Valley in Kingston, New York, Amper’s line of Toucan Hats are made with the old hat-making traditions in mind. Manual pressing stampers are used to shape and mold each felt and straw hat into a gorgeous classic shape. The results are iconic hat silhouettes accented with beautiful touches of fabric, flowers or ribbon. In addition, specialty hats made with cotton and linen are also available along with packable hats that are perfect for travel.

These custom-designed hats are ideal for modern men and women with an affinity for all things vintage. Amper’s classic flapper hats, cloches and fedoras feature modest and chic looks at affordable prices. See her incredible work up close and try on a few hats for yourself by visiting a Sugarloaf art fair.
