"This is our biggest market yet! Indoor and outdoor artists for the first time. The Handmade Market is a one day, designer craft fair and market featuring handcrafted goods from more than 50 artists, designers and crafters. The FREE event will run from noon until 7:00 pm on Saturday, May 13th, 2017. (There is a special preview shopping experience from 10:00am until noon the same day. Entrance to the preview will be $7.00 and includes an event notebook, raffle ticket and complimentary beverage samples from Big Boss Brewery.)
Interested artists, crafters and designers applied for The Handmade Market throughout the winter. Applicants were juried and accepted into the event with a focus on local and regional artists. The selection jury concentrated on designers that represent such diverse groups of modern makers including, jewelry, children's goods, apparel, fashion accessories, home goods, bath & body, fine art and stationery. The jury consists of artists, designers and crafters of varying media experience. Since its inception in 2006, The Handmade Market has become one of the Southeast's most highly anticipated shopping events. It is produced by The Handmaidens and made possible with support from local businesses and volunteers." –The Handmade Market
