What’s Up

Thank You Everyone, for a Great Craft Season

Selene and I want to thank everyone, Emily from Orange Park and her Team, The Great Team at Diamond D Ranch, Christy and her Volunteers in Bostwick, and most importantly everyone that stopped by the JaxWhirligigs Booth at any event during the past Craft Season.

We met and talked to a bunch of great folks all season long, some of you bought your first Whirligig, some bought more Whirligigs and some didn’t buy one (yet) but the best part of Craft Shows is getting to meet and talk with so many people, and hear some stories about Whirligigs from their childhood or ones they have now.

Selene and I were lucky, this last craft show of the season, as the weather mostly cooperated and today turned out to be a really great final show for us.  Don’t forget if you should want or need a Whirligig this summer, don’t hesitate to give me a call 🙂

So, Thanks to Everyone for another Great Craft Season and “See you in September” 😉

JaxWhirligigs Final Craft Show of this Season is Today!

Ok folks, the weather forecast has improved somewhat, at least for this Morning and JaxWhirligigs will be at the Orange Park Market from 10 AM until 3 PM (unless weather shortened).

This is the Final Craft Show for JaxWhirligigs for the 2022-2023 Season and your last chance to see all of our Whirligigs on Display until September…  (See you in September ring any bells?  )

We have an almost full Inventory right now, including Butterflies.  With the 4th of July just a month away you may want to consider adding a Patriotic Eagle (we have three sizes), or an Uncle Sam to your Whirligig collection.

In any event, this Morning will be the time to get out to Orange Park for the Market and check out JaxWhirligigs as well as all the other wonderful hand crafted vendors.

See you today,
Bob & Selene

Last Show of the Season? Maybe?

This Sunday, Jun 4, 2023 is the last Craft Show of the Season for JaxWhirligigs at The Orange Market Farmer’s and Arts Market.

However currently the weather forecast for Sunday is dismal, at best.  Basically 70% chance of thunderstorms from 10 AM to 3 PM, the hours of the show.

As it stands right now JaxWhirligigs is scheduled to participate in the Orange Park Market, however if it is raining Sunday AM and the forecast for the rest of the day doesn’t change we may have to withdraw.

I personally am really bummed as I have been working hard the last two weeks, we have new Butterflies, Parrots, Patriotic Eagles (all sizes), Thin Blue Line, Uncle Sam’s, Roosters, and all of our Puppy Whirligigs in stock and it was my intention to end this craft season with one of our better stocked shows.

In any event we are currently planning on attending this Sunday’s Craft Show in Orange Park, but the weather may have other ideas.  Check back here Sunday for any updates on on our Farcebook page 😉

Orange Park Market, Next to last of the season, May 21, 2023

This Sunday, May 21, 2023, from 10 AM to 3 PM (Maybe a bit earlier depending on weather) is the next to last Orange Park Market for the 2022 – 2023 season.  JaxWhirligigs, along with about 90 other vendors, will be there.

With two Patriotic Holidays right around the corner, Memorial Day and The 4th of July, this Sunday would be a great time to get yourself a Patriotic Eagle.  We will have Multiple Patriotic Eagles in all three sizes, Small, Medium and Large, with us.  We also have a couple of Uncle Sam Whirligigs and USA Whirligigs as well as almost all of our other Whirligigs in stock 😉

The current weather forecast has a pretty nice day up until 2 or 3 PM on Sunday, and it may be the last nice day for the next week, so what a great excuse to get out and take a walk around the Orange Park Market (before the rains get here)

Selene and I hope to see you this Sunday.

Orange Park Market this Sunday May 07, 2023

This Sunday is the start of the last three Craft Shows for JaxWhirligigs this Craft Season.  The Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Market will be held this Sunday, May 07, 2023 from 10 AM to 3 PM and JaxWhirligigs will be participating.  Not only that but Carolyn’s Clay Pot Lighthouses will also be there right next to JaxWhirligigs.

If you don’t know The Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Market is held at the Orange Park Town Hall Park at the corner of Park Ave (US 17) and Kingsley Ave in Orange Park Fl.   There are usually anywhere from 90 to 110 Vendors and Parking is FREE and Admission is FREE 🙂  There are always Food Trucks as well as fresh vegetables, fruit and a BUNCH of Hand Crafted goods of all matures, like Whirligigs and Clay pot Lighthouses 😉

JaxWhirligigs has only three more craft shows in the 2022 – 2023 Craft Season and they will all by at The Orange Park Market.

Selene and I hope to see YOU there 😉

Bob & Selene

Saturday Apr 29, 2023, what will you be doing?

JaxWhirligigs and over 100 other craft vendors will be at the best single day craft show in NE Florida.

The 24th Bostwick Blueberry Festival will be held from 8 AM to 3 PM in Bostwick Florida.  For those of you not familiar with Bostwick, just head south (From Jax) on US 17 until you see a flashing yellow light, turn left and follow the signs 🙂

Bostwick is always a great craft show, especially if you like, LOVE, Blueberries, there will be about 50,000 lbs of fresh florida blueberries for sale as well as all things blueberry, even stuff you never thought of 😉

Anyway to make a short story shorter, when making your plans for next weekend, make sure the Bostwick Blueberry Festival is on your agenda.  Did I mention Admission is FREE and FREE Parking too 🙂

Selene and I hope to see you at Bostwick.



Orange Park Market Sun Apr 2, 2023 Yes JaxWhirligigs will be there!

This Sunday, April 02, 2023, JaxWhirligigs will be one of the Vendors at the Orange Park Farmer’s and Arts Market from 10 AM to 3 PM.  There will only be one Orange Park Market in April, so this is your chance to start that Spring Shopping.

The weather is looking really good for Sunday, Mid 80’s and Partly Cloudy with almost no chance of rain, just the way I like it 🙂

I know all of you have started working on your Yards, either that or you now live in a Jungle as everything seems to have taken off in the last couple of weeks.   I am sure you have noted a spot that could use a New Whirligig, or Plant or other decoration and the Orange Park Market is a great place to get a a Whirligig (LOL) or other outside item.  Not to mention all the other vendors that will be there, soaps, jewelry, spices, sauces, honey, wind chimes, jams and jellies and more…..

Selene and I are looking forward to seeing all of our Whirligig Loving friends this Sunday and maybe meet a few new ones 🙂

Till then,
Bob & Selene


It is Diamonds in the Rust Weekend :)

Diamonds in the Rust, held at Diamond D Ranch on the Westside (Bestside) of Jax is this weekend, starting Friday Mar 24, 2023 at 10 AM and JaxWhirligigs will be there in Booth #54  (Car 54 where are Youuuuu)(yeah I know, showing my age)

Friday Mar 24, 2023  10 AM to 4 PM
Saturday Mar 25, 2023 9 AM to 5 PM
Sunday Mar 26, 2023 10 AM to 4 PM

Diamond D Ranch is located on the Westside of Jax off of Normandy Blvd.

There will be over 180 Vendors, and while I was setting up today I noticed a number of new Vendors I have never seen before, not to mention some Great Food Vendors, it is one of the shows we go to that we know we will not have a problem with getting something good to eat.

The weather this weekend looks to be really nice with temps in the mid to upper 80’s (there is plenty of shade in the Festival grounds)  There is an admission charge for Diamonds in the Rust.  Friday is your best bet to get those rare finds, but Saturday and Sunday are the big shopping days.

I will be there solo on Friday and Selene will be joining me for Saturday and Sunday and we really hope to see you this weekend 🙂

JaxWhirligigs will not be attending the Orange Park Market in March

The next Craft Event that JaxWhirligigs will be attending is Diamond D’s Diamonds in the Rust Spring Market starting March 24, 2023 which is why we will be unable to attend the Orange Park Markets on March 05 and 19, 2023.

It is all Bob’s fault as he (I) am behind in making Whirligigs and needs the extra time in order to have enough Whirligigs in stock for Diamonds in the Rust.

Selene and I encourage you to take some time this Sunday, March 05, 2023 and again March 19, 2023 to stop by the Orange Park Market as it is the best location to get items for your yard and home, and I don’t know about you but I already have Spring Fever and am spending more time outside everyday 🙂

We will be looking forward to seeing you all at Diamond D Ranch later this month and until then we hope you are spending more time outside then in, you live in Florida for a reason, take advantage of it 😉
