There is also jewelry by Victoria Cross of Hattiesburg and by Amber’s Allie of Natchez. There are t-shirts by Anna Grace Tees of Gulfport, pottery pieces by Tab Boren of Mantachie, metal works by Debbie Barron of Florence, water color paintings by Bram Saucier of Collins and several Mississippi cookbooks. Additionally, wonderful candles from Blue Deer Candles and Wax of West Point and Grassroots Natural Candle Company of Columbus are displayed as well as goods from Flathau’s Bakery of Petal. The Friends of the Covington County, MS Library would like to thank Collins Florist owner Dara Saucier for sharing her items highlighting Mississippi artisans. The Friends want other local businesses and residents to know that the library display case is available monthly and invite anyone to share a collection, hobby or interesting display.
