“We started the event four years ago as a group of local artists inspired by the independent entrepreneurship and creative talents of those around us. We do emphasize that it is the premiere event to see and purchase handmade items from local and regional artists and makers because it is. The craft fair is so wonderfully unique that after four years and eight craft fairs later it continues to grow and support local artists by providing a platform that raises awareness about the young DIY crafters and artists in our community and helps them sell their wares, while also networking and building connections with other like-minded communities that can hopefully help to expand their business. It is also hosted at the Miners Foundry, a historic building which was built by hand from local timber and stone. We are pretty lucky to have such a cool event in our community!” said co-founder Jesse Locks.
