chock full of…

I love reading about the  crafting and everyday dreams of Laura Browning at her chock full of blog.  She has also started her own handmade line featuring Happy Day banners and patchwork pillows.
Her Carrboro premier will be this Saturday at our Open Eye Market.
Her creations make lovely Mother’s Day gifts!


We love Carrboro Coffee Roasters.  They are responsible for the fresh, beautifully roasted coffee that you enjoy each time you go to Open Eye Cafe, Cafe Driade, or a number of other restaurants, clubs and cafes around the area.
The owner, Scott Conary, is not only a coffee expert but also someone who appreciates coffee at its roots.  He visits the farms that the beans come from to meet the farmers and the land.  There are many steps to a good cup of coffee and they are each important.

You can learn more about coffee and coffee roasting at the our OCAM market at Open Eye.  Come smell the roasting beans, sip on a well made coffee and meet the artisans behind Carrboro Coffee Roasting.
