Debbie Diedrich grew up in Chelsea and now lives in Manchester.
She’s in her fourth year as a vendor at the Chelsea Farmers Market and enjoys interacting with customers.
“I get to meet old classmates and people I used to wait on at the Chelsea Post Office,” said Diedrich, who retired 12 years ago from the post office. It was soon after that her friend Maureen Lochey (Country Hills Pottery) showed her how to bead.
“I like to incorporate things I see in a piece of jewelry,” said Diedrich. “This is a relaxing hobby.”
She makes and sells hand woven and strung bracelets, necklaces and earrings in a variety of colors.
