The Handmade Market

Shop Raleigh, North Carolina's The Handmade Market for hip, handcrafted goods from more than 50 of the best and brightest artists, independent designers and crafters from NC and beyond.

Preparations are under way for the Fall market on Saturday November 7th from 11 am until 5 pm at Marbles Kids Museum (201 E. Hargett St.) in downtown Raleigh.

Yours truly will be at the market this weekend, but only as a shopper. I completely forgot about the show and missed the application deadline. Oh well, at least I'll get some of my Christmas shopping done. :)

Shop & Win To Support A Good Cause

Every show the Handmaidens (a NC collective of artists and designers who host the show) choose a local charity to support by way of a raffle at the entrance where shoppers can buy raffle tickets in lieu of an entry fee. One hundred percent of the raffle ticket sales goes to the chosen charity. The raffle prizes are always comprised of great products from local designers and businesses. For the event this weekend on November seventh, they have chosen The Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC, an organization whose mission it is to eliminate hunger in central and eastern North Carolina.
