This year’s Labor Day Celebration encompassed all three floors of the historic Mill. Delicious samples and sales were offered on first floor, a beautiful jewelry art demonstration on second floor and catchy country classics could be heard on third floor in the Bean Palace Restaurant. Check out the event video and pictures below to learn more about our annual celebration. A big thank you to all who joined in on the fun! – Miss Millie
Enjoy a snippet of great tunes sang by local country singer, Ronny Gibbons, and an experimental jewelry demonstration by Janet Alexander, a.k.a. Eureka Janet.
The Mill’s first floor was buzzing with visitors and the sound of the Mill grinding fresh corn into cornmeal. Many shopped the shelves and grabbed their favorite goodies and others couldn’t resist the tempting samples given out all weekend long. Visitors enjoyed Buckwheat Banana Cake, Pancake Sugar Cookies and Chocolate Chip Cherry Balls. YUM!
Arriving on the second floor, many were greeted by Eureka Janet, numerous tools, bright colored powders and beautiful jewelry. Originally from Eureka Springs, Janet has considered herself an artist since the age of five when she learned how to sew and a year later, sold her first painting. Through many years of creating and experimenting, she’s found a passion for making colorful brass and copper jewelry with powder coating. The colorful powder is a fine non-toxic thermoplastic that is cured in a quick, low-heat process. It’s applied by using a sifter and cured in a small oven. Each piece of jewelry is one-of-a-kind!
