Glass blowing demo at Saltwater Cottage Christmas Open House

With the holidays among us, Saltwater Cottage in Navarre is the place to find a gift for everyone on your list. From purpose-driven jewelry and devotional books to handbags made from recycled military tents, everything sold at Saltwater has a story and mission behind it.

Artist Brian Frosch makes the Spoken2 bracelets sold at Saltwater Cottage. These bracelets are made of bicycle spokes, and each has a unique glass bead in the middle.

“He hand-blows each glass bead, so no two are ever alike,” House said. “He uses the bicycle spoke because we’re all spokes in the wheel of life so to speak. So, not if but when you’re that bottom spoke and you feel like you’ve got the weight of the world on you, because of your tribe, the other spokes in the wheel, you’re not crushed by that weight because everyone’s helping carry the load.”

Brian Frosch will be at Saltwater Cottage’s upcoming Christmas Open House Dec. 3. Come watch as he hand-blows each glass bead for his hand-made bracelets on the front porch.

Another vendor Sarah Bostic with Bostic Custom Designs will be at the open house and have her bottle ornaments set up for you to fill with your favorite collection of local shells.

Every Saturday from now until Christmas, Saltwater Cottage will be hosting Demo Saturdays where their vendors will be demonstrating how they create their art that is sold in the store.

The trendy boutique on Highway 98 has also expanded their baby selection and must-have items. Come find cute teethers, swaddles, blankets, bibs, and cute diaper bags, headbands and blankets. Their newest baby item is their adorable Wee Squeak Baby Shoes, which squeak with every step.

You can’t forget the back wing of the store, which is full of high-quality, delicious food items such as dipping oil mixes and Mango-Pineapple Habanero Salsa. They also have charcuterie board pieces and Frontier soup mixes, where you add a few ingredients and it tastes homemade in minutes.

The shop is stocked with intentional gifts and decor to turn the focus to something bigger, someone so much bigger.

“It’s more than a gift purchased from Saltwater, but rather a gift to start conversations about our Jesus,” she added.

Some of the unique finds you can buy at Saltwater include inspirational wall décor and shower soap-infused loofahs.

Many of their items are ministry-based and donate a percentage of their profits to great causes.
Saltwater Cottage carries a little bit of everything from inspirational books, handcrafted jewelry, Turkish towels and baby toys to cute dog collars and fun chew toys.

Candles are a bestseller at Saltwater Cottage and are hand poured by owner Julie Condon. She crafts each fragrance, and each candle has a story and is individually prayed over.

The newest candle called “Twelve” was released on the store’s 10th birthday. It represents the 12 disciples, the 12 tribes of Israel and their local Twelve Prayer Group.

“It’s a great conversation starter about how we are called to spread the Good News and be the hands and feet of Jesus,” House said.
