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 pride ourselves in curating a collection of original handmade goods that is different from most craft shows in our area. The Hip Handmade Market features unique artists and is well diversified. You WILL definitely see traditional mediums like wood, yarn, and fabric goods, but they won't be the kind of thing you find in your grandmother's basement. We accept artists that take the classic arts, crafts, and talents 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?
The 2019 Spring Hip Handmade Market will be held at The Joplin Empire Market space at 931 East 4th Street in Downtown Joplin, Missouri and *bonus* Joplin Empire Market will be going on as usual alongside the HHM! This means not only will you be able to snag some bomb ass handmade goodness… there’ll also be baked goods + fresh produce + veggies!
We will be open to everyone Saturday March 23rd 10a to 4p for a $3 donation entry partially benefiting Art Feeds (check this out for more info on our partnership!)
Mitzi Starkweather Photography will be there and they'll be available to assist you at the selfie station. Of course we’ll be doing giveaways every half hour! The Hip Handmade Market is the most totally rad place to be, you won’t want to miss it!
