Booth #8 - Murphys Witch Walk Admission Desk.
This is where you will check into the Murphys Witch Walk Wicked Goods Bizarre Bazaar if you have a pre-paid ticket or pay the paltry $5 admission (a portion of which goes to Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern California). Here you will get you your wrist band, raffle tickets, a goody bag, a printed paper program, and a commemorative bumper sticker, and it's also where you can ask questions and it will be our Lost and Found. This is the Halloween Festival Vendor Bazaar you don't want to miss. And it's for a good cause in honor of "Super" Wyatt Walker and the Walker Family of Murphys.
Booth #9 - GetStabby and Picaresque Punk. Artists Corrina Yamamoto and Nicklaus Barnes.

Booth #11 - Sacred Sierra Creations. Artist Kiel Smith.
Artist Kiel Smith has lived in the Sierra Foothills most of his life where he has always been inspired by the beauty of the Sierra Mountains. All of his creations are handcrafted and hand carved orgonite pendants made from local pinecones, exotic woods and other thoughtfully sourced materials, some of which he gathers from the Sierra forests. We have never seen anything quite like Kiel’s work before, we were pretty impressed by its uniqueness and had to have him participate in the vendor bazaar at the Murphys Witch Walk because he’s a standout artist creating standout art, as is everyone else in our expanded bazaar this year.
Sacred Sierra Creations all start out as a pendant carved of exotic or hard woods, such as blood wood, walnut, oak or (our favorite) a carved knobcone, and then an exotic gem, crystal or stone, such as Labradorite, Moonstone, Tiger Eye, Amethyst, Ammonite, Apatite, Jasper, Fossilized Coral, or Abalone, often times along with a sacred geometry design, is inset on the pendant in a base of orgonite.
What is orgonite?
Orgonite is a mixture of shaved metals, crushed crystals and epoxy that when combined balances electromagnetic fields. It produces positive energy while neutralizing negative energy, in turn protecting us from harmful EMF (electro magnetic frequency) waves. All of Kiel’s orgonite is hand mixed and combined with phosphorescence to give it a glowing effect. Kiel’s Sacred Sierra Creations are about as close as you’re going to come to wearing your best-ever Ayahuasca experience. The end result is no two awe inspiring pendants ever remotely come close to looking like one another.
The Murphys Witch Walk is extremely grateful that Kiel will showcase a fascinating glimpse of the beauty that is his Sacred Sierra Creations wearable art on Saturday, October 15, 2022 in booth #11 in the Native Sons Hall.

Booth #12 - Vulturess Findings. Artist Kelly Acosta.
The Vendor Bazaar at the Murphys Witch Walk, Saturday, Oct. 15, 2022, is proud to welcome back returning champion wearable art maven Kelly Acosta and her Vulturess Findings handmade jewelry designs at the Native Sons Hall, booth #12. The best way we can describe Kelly's inimitable work is it appears to be created as if by some kind of Elfin-meets-Pixie magic straight out of the Lord of Rings.

Booth #13 - Holly-Days Home Decor. Artist Holly Yager.
Coming from a family of drafters and sign makers, the art bug caught Holly Yager early in life and she has been an artist since childhood. And for good reason, because that reason comes from great influence… Her Grandfather was a famous sign maker who worked for companies such as Hanna Barbera drawing cartoons and who, later in life, taught Holly’s mother how to make vinyl signs and paint murals. Imagine having that kind of familial behind-the-scenes access to development sketches and concepts to programs like Huckleberry Hound, The Flintstones, Yogi Bear, Top Cat, The Jetsons, Jonny Quest, Wacky Races, Scooby-Doo and The Smurfs as a child!
It was through the natural order of things that Grandfather and Mom would pass their knowledge on to Holly. Holly got into wreath making a few years ago and the new interest quickly turned into a passion. As a lover of the holidays, Holly ran with her idea to make sign-adorned wreaths by hand. Holly points out, “Wreaths are so fun, because they reflect a funky and festive feeling whenever they're displayed.”
Always one to expand and diversify her artistic endeavors, Holly also makes geometric terrariums with live plants decorated with crystals and spooky scenes. Other items in her arsenal of artist endeavors are indoor and outdoor signs and other decorative home accessory items.
