We're excited to bring you a series of profiles to introduce you to a few of our artisans coming to the 8th Annual Crafty Mart Holiday Show on Saturday and Sunday, November 26th-27th. This is just one in a series of Vendor Spotlights in which we let those who will be sharing their wares shine a light on what it is they do. The following profile is Aaron of Whiskertin Light and his response to a mini-questionnaire.
1. What is your name and what is it that you make?
Whiskertin Light is Aaron Novak and Glenn Miller. We make hand crafted custom lighting. Please feel feel to choose from our display, or let us make a custom piece for your home or business.
2. How did you acquire the unique skill set to do what it is you do?
I (Aaron Novak) have been in the HVAC industry for 20 years. We started off by making most of our light fixtures from duct work parts. Since the start, our ideas have branched out to many different things. The possibilities are almost endless as to what we can make a light out of.
3. What is your best seller?
Our top seller was our standard can Lights but recently things are taking a completely new direction. We are super excited to see what's next.
4. How long have you been vending? Have you done a Crafty Mart show before?
We have only been vending about 6 months. We have done a few Crafty Mart shows: Akron Ale Fest, Canton First Friday, and the Akron Farm and Flea. We have had a great time at all the events!
5. The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?
I would have to say neither.....The Replacements.
Thank you for answering our questions, Aaron. And, thanks for coming to the 8th Annual Crafty Mart Holiday Show. We'll see everyone on Sat. & Sun. Nov. 26th-27th at Musica, Akron Art Museum, and Summit Artspace. You'll be able to find Whiskertin Light at Akron Art Museum.
