Meet Our Vendors
Hello, hello! My name is Jennifer Underwood & I started creating artwork, home decor and gifts as a side business, J.U. Designs, back in 2010. Since as far back as I can remember I have enjoyed decorating and providing unique and personalized decor and gifts, so others can do the same.
In October of 2013 I was able to turn this passion into a full-time business by opening a multi-artisan store front, CJ's Creative Marketplace (C&J are my husbands and my initials, Chuck & Jennifer). I am happy to be able to continue doing what I love, while providing space for other artisans, makers & vendors to do the same!
We create a new life for old parts and pieces, as well as old furniture and vintage items found or salvaged. These items can add a unique touch to your home patio or porch. We have been a part of CJ's since June of 2014 and feel it is a very unique shop with a wide variety of items.
We are The Phelps Family with The Barnyard. We have been with CJ's Creative Marketplace since 2016. Our family creates a variety of farmhouse-style signs, home decor, and furniture. We love being a part of the CJ's Creative Marketplace family!
Hey all! I'm Robin, the owner, and creator behind Robin's Egg Blue Creations. I'm a Jesus-loving, family-chilling, nap-taking maker who loves ALL things creative! I've always had a passion for paper, scissors, and glue! And now that I'm grown up, I've added paint, stencils, die cut machines, felt, and much more, to my craft palette. I love to "embellish this and alter that" with inexpensive items to turn them into unique home decor and crafts. And for those of you that like to DIY, I can show you how be crafty through live video tutorials and crafty classes.
Hi! I'm Michelle Ballah, owner of Michelle's Forever Stitches. I am Jennifer Underwood's mom, have 4 children, 8 grandchildren, 1 great granddaughter & recently retired. I became a part of CJ's Creative Marketplace in January of 2020. I enjoy sewing, knitting & crocheting. I grew up loving to watching my grandmother sew beautiful baby dresses with tiny hand stitching & she also taught me how to knit.
You will find a variety of my hand sewn items here at CJ's Creative Marketplace. I have baby items, hooded towels, vehicle trash bags, purses, adult bibs/coverups, walker bags, kitchen items & more. If there is a specific item you are looking for, I am willing to figure out how to make it!
Hello, I'm Chrissy, owner of Creations by Mommy & Me! I'm a mother of 5 children and a grandmother to 1 awesome grandson. I've been with CJ's creative Marketplace for about two years and make hair bows, wristlet keychains, jewelry, crochet, sewn items, and crafts of all kinds.
My name is Mary Sue Bremerman, I am the owner of EvelynMae+Phillip, which features the Wellington Design clothing line as well as a few others. With the support of my husband (Ron), I have set out on this journey to provide parents, grandparents, and even Aunts/Uncles the opportunity to shop for quality children's clothing. My daughter Mara Oliver is my tech-savvy person behind the scenes. Without her help, this journey would not be possible.
I have been a part of the CJ's Creative Marketplace Family for a little over a year.
EvelynMae+Phillip was founded with our grandkids in mind. It is a struggle to find good quality clothing that will withstand daily wear. My goal is to provide you with just that. With the closing of clothing stores, it is getting harder to find just what you want for your kids. I will have videos where the grandkids and our friend's kids will try the clothes on and model them on Facebook. I will also get their opinion on the clothing, as they are the ones that will wear them. As we grow, we will have live shows, which at this time will be on Facebook.

My name is Linda Rittel. I have been a part of CJ's Creative Marketplace as a vendor for almost 5 years. I don't have a business name, I just refer to myself as Booth #88. I love picking, repurposing, upcycling and selling what I find as is. I love making pillows from vintage fabrics, when I can find it, and making handmade scented candles. More recently, I made and stocked cuff bracelets from vintage leather belts, very Boho. I always have a variety of fun and unique crafts and picks in my booth. Come check out all of the talented vendors here at CJ's. See ya soon.
Hello, my name is Robert (Bob) Peck. I'm a long-time resident of Salina. I operate under the business name of RE and have been associated with CJ's Marketplace for over two years now.
Looking at my booth, one might wonder just what that guy does. Well, I usually do whatever strikes me on any given day. Most of what I do involves old iron, or old tools, repurposed as tabletop sculptures that can be displayed as décor.
My main interest is sculpture, whether it be metal, wood, or stone, but mostly I work with black iron. Some of my sculptures have been or are displayed in downtown Salina as part of the Sculpture Tour.
Hopefully, the customers of CJ's Creative Marketplace will find something throughout the year that fits their needs!
