Meet Yellow Brick Road & Top's Wooden Toys


Hi! My name is Sarah Fruehan and I'm the brick vendor at CLB! I've been creating since I was a little kid, and always was either painting, crafting, scrapping, and really just doing anything cr...eative. I decided to study art and subsequently have a degree from Biola University in CA in Art and Graphic Design. My family and I moved from California to Colorado only 7 short months ago and we are loving it here! I am married to my wonderful husband Brett, for almost 12 years now, and we have 2 boys, Landon age 5 and Evan age 3. In addition to painting, I also have a cake and cupcake business, Sweet Stuff Cupcakes. I love to put my artistic flair into sugared creations! My passion for art and creating is something I feel the Lord has blessed me with and it's simply what I love to do each day!

Sarah does bricks for all occassions and even does custom work.
Today’s Featured Vendor is TOP’S WOODEN TOYS.
Lynn Topham is a Vietnam Veteran who served in the US Air Force for 20 years and retired in 1986. He worked for IBM in their Federal Systems Group for 15 years, retiring in 2002. He then worked for IBM as a sub-contractor managing other sub-contractors on another Federal Government contract.
Lynn has been scroll sawing since about 1984. He has enjoy...ed making toys for his grandkids and others. He has made all kinds of things from the cars and trucks you see at Cherry Lime to a pedal powered bi-plane.

He is fully retired now and just likes making toys. He started making puzzles about a year ago after attending a craft show in Broomfield. He visited with the other wood worker in the show and they got together so he could learn some tricks of the trade.

When we first opened CLB we didn’t have much for boys. Now we have these amazing wooden cars, trucks, and puzzles to fill that gap.
You can see his cars and trucks as well as some really cool wood puzzles in his album on our page, or come on in to the shop.

At CLB we LOVE our vendors!!!
