Local + Handmade.
Two words that mean a lot to residents in Raleigh (and Durham and Chapel Hill) where crafters, handmakers, and hyper local buyers thrive and flourish.
One of the biggest events to serve them is the craft fair, The Handmade Market, each spring and fall since 2006.
This year, it will be held…
» on May 4th (11am – 5pm)
» at (historic Cobbleston Hall) in City Market
» across from Moore Square, parking info here
Shop for jewelry, fashion, accessories, home goods, fine art, stationery, children’s goods, and men and women’s apparel.
50 artists from NC and beyond will be there, see spotlights of them on the Handmaiden’s blog.
Since its inception in 2006, The Handmade Market has become one of the Southeast’s most highly anticipated shopping events. The Handmade Market is produced by The Handmaidens and is made possible with support from local businesses and volunteers.
P.S. There will be a raffle to raise funds for local charity, The Scrap Exchange—a group that promotes creativity, environmental awareness, and community through reuse.
P.P.S My joint venture with my sister, Darling & Dear (we handmake cards), hopes to be at The Handmade Market in the fall! And, our Mother’s Day cards are out.
