Why: Marla Blair is a mom, freelance writer, and all-around crafty gal. She became “the Button Babe” in the 90s, when she was obsessed with 1” buttons. She covered her bags in buttons and even had some made as favors for her wedding. Once she had the opportunity to buy her own button press, she was enthralled. She started making buttons for friends and selling on Etsy. Now she has an even larger press that allows her to make magnets, mirrors, and more. She uses vintage art as well as her own unique designs.
When: Selling in Homegrown since 2011.
