What is The Hip Handmade Market?
The Hip Handmade Market is a curated indie-craft market. It's the perfect place to purchase some original pieces for yourself, your home, your family, and that perfect gift for your friend, all while supporting local + regional artists and crafters. Our event is juried from a number of applications to offer a wide variety of handmade goods. You can expect good quality and affordable products. Our Market showcases an array of mediums that might include, paper goods, soaps, jewelry, pottery, clothing, vintage finds, accessories, knits, photography, paintings & so much more! Aside from the exciting shopping we will offer you a fun and relaxed vibe, giveaways every hour, local eateries, and an all around good time!
This is not your average craft show.
We will strive to have original handmade art that is different from most around our area. Our craft show features unique artists and is well diversified. You WILL definitely see wood, yarn, and fabric goods, but they won't be the kind of thing you find in your grandmother's basement. We will find artists that take the classic arts, crafts, and talents handed down and bring them to us in a modern take along with a few new things that we just can't get enough of. In a word, it's going to be hip.
When + where will it be?
