What’s Up

Happy New Year 2021 :)

2020 is finally coming to a close and we certainly have higher expectations for 2021, hopefully we will see an end to the virus madness we have been dealing with for the last 9 months and all of our favorite Craft Events get back on track.

The first Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Market of 2021 will be this Sunday Jan 03, 2021 from 10 AM to 3 PM.  JaxWhirligigs will not be attending (as we typically take off January to allow us to build up our Whirligig Inventory for the spring)  but there will still be 70 or more Vendors at the Market and the weather is looking very nice for Sunday so if you are out and about make sure to stop by and check out the Handmade Crafts available.

Selene and I want to wish everyone a Very Happy New Years and will be looking forward to seeing you all at events starting in February.

Happy New Year!


Merry Christmas from JaxWhirligigs

Selene and I would like to take a moment and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.

With all the craziness that we have seen in 2020 it is refreshing to see all the Christmas Spirit we have seen this year.

To all the Whirligig Lovers out there we hope you have a Very Special and Merry Christmas and hope that 2021 brings you much happiness and more togetherness.

Dec 20, 2020 Last Orange Park Market of the Year

The last Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Market is this Sunday, Dec 20, 2020 from 10 AM to 3 PM and while right now the weather doesn’t look great JaxWhirligigs will be there for any last minute Whirligig Gifts 🙂

We have a pretty good selection of our most Popular Whirligigs and if you are looking for that special gift come on by and see us 🙂  Not to mention the other 80+ vendors that will be there, there are all sorts of possibilities for last minute gifts…

Hope to see you this Sunday,
Bob & Selene

Orange Park Market Sunday Dec 06, 2020 10 AM – 3 PM

JaxWhirligigs, along with about 90 other Vendors, will be at the Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Market this Sunday, December 06, 2020 from 10 AM to 3 PM and the weather looks pretty nice, mid 60’s with little change of rain.

This Market and the next, on Dec 20, are usually some of the best Markets as we usually see some vendors that aren’t at the Market routinely.  We will have extra Whirligigs with us so if you are looking for a Christmas present we will have the Whirligig you are looking for.

Selene and I hope to see you this Sunday 🙂


Diamonds in the Rust Event Nov 20 – 21 -22, 2020

JaxWhirligigs will be participating in the Diamonds in the Rust event at Diamond D Ranch this weekend,  the event starts on Friday Nov 20th, 2020 from 10 AM to 4 PM, then on Saturday Nov 21st, 2020 from 9 AM to 5 PM and then finishes up on Sunday Nove 22nd, 2020 from 10 AM to 4 PM.

This is a little different from other events we do as there will be Antiques, Vintage Items, Farm House Finds, Home Decor vintage furniture and hand crafted crafts and items.  There will be a number of Food Trucks present, if it is anything like last year it is almost worth the visit just for the food 😉

It is basically off Normandy Blvd on the Jacksonville, Westside.

From what I saw today it appears there will be over 100 Vendors and you can spend a couple of hours, easy, looking around.  This is not a free event, there is an Admission charge, Friday Early Birds it is $15, Saturday $10 and Sunday $5.  Children under 12 are admitted free. More information can be seen here:  https://www.diamonddranchinc.com/diamond-in-the-rust

So if you are interested in seeing some different stuff (and I mean different) you should plan on coming out one day this weekend.

JaxWhirligigs will be back at the Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Market (weather permitting) on Dec 06, 2020 and again Dec 20, 2020.

Hope to see you soon,
Bob & Selene

JaxWhirligigs will NOT be attending the Orange Park Market Nov 15, 2020

I am very sorry to have to report that JaxWhirligigs will not be able to attend the Nov 15, 2020 Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Market.  We are still trying to recover from a record setting Fall Festival in Orange Park and the weather has not helped.  The last few weeks have been pretty wet with rain almost everyday and that has slowed me down in making new Whirligigs and we simply do not have enough Inventory.

I would strongly recommend you still take the time to stop by the Market this weekend as the next three Markets have typically been the busiest Markets with a number of Vendors that you don’t always get to see.  JaxWhirligigs does plan on attending both of the December Markets, Dec 6 and 20, 2020.

We will be at the Diamond in the Rust event at Diamond D Ranch next weekend, Friday, Sat and Sun, Nov 20, 21 and 22, 2020.

See you in December 😉

BluByU Fall Festival Oct 31, 2020 9 AM – 5 PM

JaxWhirligigs will be participating in the 1st Annual BluByU Fall Festival on the westside of Jacksonville this Saturday, Oct 31, 2020 from 9 AM to 5 PM.  There will be Arts and Crafts Vendors as well as Food trucks and Kids Activities.

There is a $5.00 per car entry fee.

We will not be at the Nov 01, 2020 Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Market, however we will be attending the Nov 15 Market.

Hope to see you Saturday,
Bob & Selene

38th Annual Orange Park Fall Festival Oct 17 – 18, 2020 10 AM – 5 PM

Well folks it is almost time for our favorite event of each Craft Season, the Annual Orange Park Fall Festival.   JaxWhirligigs will be in the same spot as each Fall Festival, Booth 131 which is close to the North East corner of the Park.


Make sure you VOTE for JaxWhirligigs in the Peoples Choice Awards, we will have ballots at the booth 🙂

This will be our 6th Annual Orange Park Fall Festival, and while we have to deal with Covid-19 this year (ALL year long *sigh*) we are determined to have the best Fall Festival ever.  There are over 150 Vendors of all types scheduled, Artisan Food, Food Trucks, Crafts of all types (including Whirligigs 😉  ) and Kids Activities and Entertainment.

The Annual Fall Festival even has an APP, doesn’t everything now…  https://opfallfestival.com/mobileapp/    Oh and the Fall Festival also has a Facebook Presence, check it out…  https://www.facebook.com/OPFallFestival/

With so many events already being cancelled this season it is refreshing to see one of the best events of the season still taking place and it will be worth your time to come and visit the Fall Festival on Saturday and/or Sunday, hey it’s FREE so you can come both days 🙂

Selene and I are both looking forward to the event as well as seeing all of you Whirligig Lovers out there…  #OPFALLFEST  #OPPARKLIFE

Until Saturday Oct 17th,  stay safe
Selene and Bob

JaxWhirligigs will not be at Orange Park Market Sun Sep 20, 2020

Sorry folks but the weather is just nasty enough that Selene and I decided we don’t need to be out on a crappy day like this and as a result we will not be attending the Orange Park Market today.

Note if you need a Whirligig before the next Market on Oct 4, 2020, just contact us and we can arrange for pickups here at our house.

Our apologies,

Orange Park Market Sunday Sep 20, 2020

The Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Market will be back this Sunday, Sep 20, 2020 from 10 AM to 3 PM and JaxWhirligigs will be there 🙂

If you have never come to the Market or haven’t been in awhile, it is worth the effort to come on by, Admission is always FREE and there are number of Food Vendors as well as us Crafters 😉  Two really pop out, Cousin’s Maine Lobster and Corny Cooks, it almost worth the visit just for them 🙂

Also note that the Orange Park Annual Fall Festival is a GO for this year and make sure you make a note on your Calendar for Oct 17 and 18, 2020 a Saturday and Sunday.  There will probably be close to 150 Vendors this year as well as Covid-19 friendly Kids activities.  I haven’t seen the vendor list yet but the Fall Festival is worth the trip just for the variety of Food Trucks, Yummmm 😉

Selene and I hope to see you this Sunday 🙂
