Jasper Orr, J & T Woodworks, Byram, Mississippi 
For years, Jasper Orr has had a passion for creating things from wood. Now, he and his family get the opportunity to share his creations. 

Jasper likes for his customers to take a nostalgic trip back in time, when “character” was put into everything that was made. Enjoy the Cadillacs, Fords, Buicks and Chevys of yesterday. See how mail was delivered in an Antique USPS Mail Truck that now doubles as a bank. Enjoy oval, collection and pedestal banks created from exotic woods from Brazil, Africa, South America, other countries and also from here in Mississippi. The fronts are antique USPS doors that were used in actual Post Offices around the United States. All items are hand crafted, all woods are their natural color, and no stains are used.

As a member of the Mississippi Craftsman’s Guild, Jasper takes great pride in his work and believes you will be totally satisfied with the workmanship. His creations evolve over time so be sure to check back often. 

Deana Goldsmith, Perkinston, Mississippi
Wildlife artist Deana Goldsmith lives in Perkinston, Mississippi with her artist husband, Bobby. Together, they travel all over the United States participating in juried art shows. Deana uses pastels to create soft, vibrant and realistic paintings of birds and animals.
