THE SPRING MARKET IS NOW
THE SUMMER MARKET!
Many of our artists and makers rely on the money they make at our markets to help pay their bills, and with everything that is going on right now, they are going to need A LOT of commuity support come July! So mark your calendars and cross your fingers that we will be back at it on July 25th! Until then keep an eye on our website and Instagram if you want to send some support our way!
SHOP OUR WEBSITE!
We now also sell Gift Certificates online! Those are a great way to help support us through this time! Buy some now and use them later when things are back up and running. Gift Certificates are 11% off through the end of March.
SHOP OUR INSTAGRAM!
We're also posting more one-of-a-kind and limited items for sale on our Instagram, so be sure to follow us there so you don't miss out!
We do truly appreciate any and all community support during this scary time. Spring Break is typically a very busy time of year for our shops so it's really hard to be closed right now. Every order from you helps keep our spirits afloat and helps us keep our business going. We truly can't thank you enough!
So many small businesses are really hurting right now and could use as much support as possible! If you have the means, please check out this website for a list of some who are participating in this citywide campaign and consider purchasing some gift certificates to use later.
Take care, stay safe and love your people!
Thanks for being awesome!

Have you ever dreamed of shopping our Holiday Art + Craft Market without all the crazy crowds of people?? Or maybe you want first pick of all the handmade goodness?
WE KNOW! Shoppers raved about last year's Friday Night Pre-Show Shopping Party so we're doing it again! Get your tickets now and be one of the lucky ones who can shop our show before we open to the public over the weekend! We're only selling 800 tickets so get one while you can! (To give you an idea of crowds, there are usually close to 2,000 people waiting in line to get into our show when it opens on Saturday morning and our attendance for the entire weekend is 20,000...so 800 will feel like a gentle breeze!)
If the early shopping perk isn't enough, your ticket also gets you one free drink of your choice at the cash bar!
Friday, December 13th
5:00pm - 9:00pm
