Ashland Artisan Emporium

Vendor of the Month: #322 Kerry Hofsess of Chloe’s Kitchen

Hi, I am Kerry and my booth at the Ashland Artisan Emporium is Chloe’s Country Kitchen. Chloe’s Kitchen sells vintage kitchenware. The purpose of the booth is to provide vintage kitchenware at a reasonable price. It specializes in cast iron skillets, and griddles. These have been cleaned and seasoned be me and are ready to cook with. The booth also features bowls, kitchen gadgets, plates, nut choppers, pictures, cookbooks, cooking utensils, and just about everything you would need to equip a complete kitchen. All of the wares are in perfect condition and are as good as, or better than you can buy new at the chain store and are at a lower price than new. They are made of cast iron, stainless steel ovenproof glass, and most handles are wood. You would be hard-pressed to find any plastic in the booth and vintage kitchenware has character. Chloe’s is extending the Back To School Sale through September and it is for everyone, so you do not have to be a student. So if you are setting up housekeeping, or fulfilling a special kitchen need, Chloe’s probably has it for you. If you don’t find what you are looking for, a new feature of the booth is a Wish List. Just leave your name and request and the item will appear. So come say hi and have a chocolate from the candy dish.

Thanks, Kerry

Ashland Artisan Emporium

The Ashland Artisan Emporium is owned by Michelle Christian, wife and mother of 3 daughters. Her husband, Travis, is the business manager for Adroit Construction in Ashland, Oregon. The Emporium was the vision of Michael Rydbom, Michelle's father. In April of 2010, Michael asked his daughter if she would be willing to help transform the old DJ's Video space into a crafter's marketplace. Michelle had always admired her dad's entrepreneurial spirit and was eager to make him proud, so even though she already had two kids, a real estate career and one more daughter on the way, she said yes. On November 1, 2010, the store opened it's doors to a welcome reception from the community. They were voted Best New Business of 2010 only months later by the Ashland Sneak Preview. Within weeks of opening, the store was at capacity and had quickly become the "go-to" store for all things unique and affordable.
