This month showcased the grand opening of Moxley’s Wooden Bowls and Handcrafted Items! The mayor of the town was in attendance for the ribbon cutting and official blessing of the shop, while visitors browsed the shelves and munched on cookies.
Mayor Patrick T. Rockinberg cut the official ribbon on 305 Main Street, Mt. Airy, with some awesome scissors. Just look at the size of those scissors … you could do some serious crafting with them!
I’m very excited to share that I have a card rack in this shop and hope many locals will be able to enjoy my greeting cards. Wooden bowls aren’t the only items up for grabs as Moxley’s has something to offer from crafty people and vendors in the community.
Mark Moxley is the owner of this fine shop in downtown Mt. Airy, Md. He specializes in handcrafted wooden bowls, cutting boards and a few other wooden products. Mark has and still does sell his bowls at the Farm Women’s Co-operative Market in Bethesda, Md. The unique downtown market once dubbed Montgomery Farm Women’s Cooperative Market began in 1932. Montgomery County is full of people with the Moxley name, and Mark’s family was a staple at the farmer’s market. (Click here to read more about the farmer’s market.)
Does the name Moxley sound familar? Well, if you’ve put the links together you will have noticed that we are distantly related. How cool is that!? My grandparents Maloy and Ruby, on my mom’s side, were Moxleys. I will update you on the Moxley heritage in another post as it’s quite lengthy.
Tada! Here’s my card rack with plenty of cards for everyone!
Come out and visit Moxley’s shop for some really awesome gifts and handmade items. Found on 305 Main Street in downtown Mt. Airy, open Thursday – Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
