Fathers Day Weekend at Lithia Artisans Market

Dennis Christlieb is a local woodworker who shows regularly at the Lithia Artisans Market of Ashland (LAMA).

Happy Fathers Day to all the dads out there.   The market is jam packed this weekend with 46 artisans showing over the course of the two days. All sorts of handcrafted goodness will be on display this weekend. We are open on Fathers Day.



Bring dad down to the market this weekend and check out what the local artisans have to offer. Men tend to love woodwork, seems almost universal. The market has some of the best. The images presented here are from three of our most active woodworking fathers.

Dennis Christlieb (above) is a cabinet maker turned artisan market member. He makes a very cool line of jewelry boxes that are also perfect for trinkets, precision tools, rock collections… you name it! These boxes appeal to men and women. See him in “The Village” (our larger booth space area in the City Parking Lot across the street from the opening to Lithia Park) this weekend and most weekends.

Larry Shinerock makes really cool cribbage boards made from local manzanita.

Larry Shinerock creates woodwork that lets the wood speak for itself. Just look at the curves in that cribbage board made of local manzanita (see the photo at the right). He finds the intrinsic beauty that already lies in each piece and brings that to life. His booth is located behind Sesame Restaurant on the building side of the walkway.

Bruce Kramer makes one item in multiple sizes and shapes and he does that task very well. Bruce and his cutting boards are a regulars most Saturdays at the market in the space up by Mix Sweetshop on the Main Street side of the market.

Great restaurants line the Calle Guanajuato walkway which is the weekend home of the artisans market. The setting of the weekend market is a picturesque place to grab lunch, listen to some live music, and visit with the local artisan community.

Thank you for purchasing locally crafted items. The best stuff is made right here in the State of Jefferson. See y’all out and about this weekend.

Bruce Kramer is a woodworker from Talent, Or. who sells his cutting boards at the Lithia Artisans Market of Ashland (LAMA).
