Design touches our lives in so many ways. It gives shape, interest, beauty and function to our surroundings. It’s inherent in the familiar, everyday objects we use. It propels life forward through innovation and creativity. Plus, it’s a key component to the identity we put forth to the world at home, work and play, affecting our relationship with and sustainability of the planet.
Moss Rock Festival strongly believes in the intrinsic value of design for a sustainable and pleasurable quality of life. So much so, that Design is one of the cornerstones of the eco-creative festival. +DESIGN at Moss Rock Festival is fashioned as a platform for designers, architects, artist collectives, and entrepreneurial upstarts to show off their talents, initiatives, and vision.

At the very least she has learned why the chicken crossed the road- because there is adventure on the other side!
After years of digging in basements, at flea markets and driving back country roads uncovering bargains for her 100 year old Alabama home, she is sharing her passion at Here a Chick There a Chick. Mounds of bright vintage jewelry, one-of-a-kind jewelry creations “Hand Chicked” from bits and pieces, as well as curated items to bring warmth to your homes, from tablecloths and purses, to the well loved and unique that will make you smile.
