Fall 2010 Show Updates!

Hi everyone!
We are working hard to get the applications ready for The Handmade Market on November 13! So stay tuned and look for the application on or around August 15.

In the mean time, we’d like to introduce you to our brand new location! It’s across from Moore Square, the park just south of Marbles Kids Museum, the location of the past few Markets.  So it’s a familiar area, the center piece of City Market, and a beauty of a historic building. For those of you who have lived in Raleigh for a while, you may remember this space as Greenshields. It was originally built as an indoor farmer’s market in 1914, which is one of the reasons we are excited to move The Handmade Market here — it really suits our vision of promoting independent, small businesses and handmade goods. The building is now known as Cobblestone Hall;  it’s gorgeous and was recently completely renovated. There is lots of natural light and room for a few more artist spaces! We’ll be able to accept a few more applicants and still have some extra room to widen the aisles for all of our shoppers.

We look forward to receiving your applications, and hope you’ll be as pleased as we are with the new location! Stay tuned for some photos of the interior of Cobblestone Hall.

Love,
The Handmaidens
