About the Event

KC Kitchen Center in cooperation with Pelican Snoball and Miss Tennessee contestant Jordan Bowling are proud to present our Mother’s Day Pop Up Market in historic Bearden on May 5th-8th.

Our fundraiser for this event is the Miss Shining Star Pageant of which Jordan is the Assistant Director and Spokesperson. Jordan shared this impact statement with us regarding the program “Another program that encourages and celebrates individuals with disabilities is the Miss Shining Star Pageant. This pageant provides opportunities for both boys and girls, as well as children and adults to appear on stage; showcasing their unique abilities and talents. Most importantly, it provides a chance for them to be celebrated for these milestone accomplishments. In March, I was named the Assistant Director and Spokesperson for Miss Shining Star. The following month, Miss Shining Star expanded our confidence building pageant experience to a state and nationwide platform. As Spokesperson, I field all interviews by local radio and television stations. As Assistant Director and long-time volunteer, I judge competitions, help fix hair and makeup, escort contestants onto the stage, donate pageant gowns, crown winners and provide backstage support. I especially enjoy encouraging contestants to bravely walk across a stage and to share their abilities with an audience. Everyone gets a crown, and it is a completely free pageant, encouraging access to all. Each and every one of these individuals deserves the chance to feel the pride of knowing they are special and valuable”

We would be honored if you would stop by their exhibit during our pop up and show some support, check out their fundraiser or just say hello to some special ladies and their families!

Miss Shining Star Pageant with Jordan Bowling

Jordan was just named the Assistant Director and Spokesperson for Miss Shining Star Pageant for special needs individuals. This is a free pageant for special needs girls and adults, where everyone gets a crown and everyone is celebrated for their "different abilities" vs disabilities. Open Doors, TN also holds a talent show in conjunction with the pageant where special needs boys, girls and adults can showcase their talents. This November will be the 10th year for the Miss Shining Star Pageant. Earlier in April, 15 of the Miss Shining Star queens were able to participate in the 1st ever Miss Star Amerifest Regional competition, a new division created just for young girls and ladies with disabilities.  Later this year they will compete in their 1st National Pageant. We are raising funds to help pay for the fees for the local pageany, as well as helping assist with the expense of the National Competition for our 15 winners.

M3C Design

Michaelanne Collins is a local artist specializing in floran and angler art (her two passions.) Her first career was as an architect specializing in hospital and medical facility design. Although she loved it, the need to be independently creative led to her second career as a full-time artist. Add to that her family's love of fly fishing and exploring the Smokies, and you can often find her riverside painting what her family catches. Her collection features a wide variety of artwork that encapsulates her favorite hikes, beach and mountain vacations, wildflower discoveries, and her love for the outdoors.

Michelanne hopes you can find something inspiring among her collections of handmade paper collages, original acrylic, palette knife, and fluid art canvases, water colors, pens and ink sketches, and framed prints.

Makes Cents 

A traveling jeweler/artist that believes a penny is a metaphor for EVERYTHING in life: faith, luck, sharing, communication,evolution, forgiveness, identity, rejection, etc.. and has a story to tell.

Inspired by a persons unique/personal story, Christinea creates jewelry to provide a safe place for open conversation. The penny reminds us of our value, no matter how small we may feel, and shows us the ripple effects in its absence.

Currently, Christinea is bouncing around the country living the “tiny van life” in her Kia Soul with her 70 lb dog. They will be in a different state every week for approximately three months to spread hope and encouragement. You don’t have to follow her on the road to grab yourself one of these intention pieces. Pop into KC Kitchen Center (insert pop up info) to find that perfect gift. Makes Cents Jewelry was born on suicide prevention approximately 9 years ago, so it only makes sense to give back to mental health organizations with every purchase.

Master Repurposers

Wait, what’s that piece of metal on the ground? Why it’s the inspiration for our next work of art. As young kids, we both individually learned the importance of finding value in all of the things around us, whether on a shelf at home or an object in the dirt by the side of the road. This perspective on value has, at its surface, engrained in us the importance of concepts like recycle, reuse, and repurpose, but at its core, it has taught us to see the intrinsic value in items that have been discarded or are expendable. With this in mind, we focus our creative energies on utilizing all manor of objects in our work, and in many cases, the reused items will drive the design of a given piece.

Master Repurposers, is the embodiment of these ideals. In the Stained Glass compositions, you can often find a piece of a wine bottle, or a glass saucer. Our Mixed Media pieces contain an endless selection of interesting items, from vintage buttons and antique game pieces to old saw blades and slate roofing tiles. The handmade jewelry follows the same process, featuring sea shells, metal springs, computer parts, and more vintage buttons. You will also find us creating fun and new furniture pieces from various discarded elements. We choose not to be bound by too narrow a description of our work, because if we find it interesting, we’ll use it or try it. And we hope you’ll like it too.

Our home Studio is in the Fountain City area of Knoxville, and you are welcome to schedule a class to learn any of the techniques we employ, or to just stop in to see what we’re working on. We encourage you to discover more of our work on our website at or send an email to

Eat My Granola

Our granola journey began over 13 years ago when we opened our Farm to Table Bed and Breakfast, The Black Sheep Inn and Spa, and our lead Granola Monster, Debbie Meritsky created a signature organic granola to serve to our guests that would be delicious, nutritious, and healthy. Deb’s personal passion and professional background has been in the food world since she was 8 years old. A graduate of New England Culinary Institute, in Montpelier Vermont, Deb couldn’t leave the world of food behind when the Black Sheep Inn was sold, and decided in early 2021 that the world needed to experience her great granola creations through a new business called Eat My Granola.

We both enjoy a gluten free and grain free diet, so we know how challenging it is to find foods that fit into the tight confines of our dietary choices. With that in mind, Deb’s been experimenting with the many ways the spices and other organic ingredients they love will fit into multiple recipes to enhance your organic granola eating experience.  Eat My Granola never uses process oils, sugars or low quality ingredients.

We are also very passionate about utilizing the highest quality ingredients, local when possible, and in support of other small and local businesses where the many ingredients can be combined to create granola blends that tantalize your tastebuds and keep you on track with your dietary needs. Not only do we craft Grain free and Gluten free, we’re adding many new blends, like our Keto, Vegan, Low Glycemic, and Hand held granola snacks. Soon, we will be offering online ordering through our website and on our social media channels. You can also find us at the many Artists and Farmers Markets throughout Knoxville, several local food delivery services, and in the near future, at specialized retail locations here in Knoxville. Wholesale packaging and custom blends are also available. We encourage you to connect with us and tell us what you’re looking for in a granola that will help keep you on your dietary course.
