With your suggested donation of $3 – $5, you’ll receive a free goodie bag courtesy of our friends at Ornamentea. (While supplies last!) You’ll also receive a free raffle ticket for a chance to win a gift basket filled with donated goods and services from our generous Charity Raffle Sponsors.

We’re also pleased to offer refreshments from Ferlo’s Alimentary and yummy locally made frozen treats from our friends at LocoPops!

Important Parking and Traffic Info:

We’ve just been informed that the Buckhead Saloon next door to The Handmade Market will be hosting a Cinco de Mayo event on Saturday. As a result, the 100 block of S. West St. will be blocked off to vehicle traffic from Morgan St to Hargett St. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. Event parking is available on the streets surrounding West St.
