Because Mall is a Four Letter Word

What A Day!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Thanks to everyone who came out for our 17th edition of The Handmade Market! On behalf of all the fabulous artists and food vendors, thank you for taking the time to drop in and shop local!

This is the third time we have opened up at 10am for Early Bird Shopping. Did you get in on it? Did you get your hot pink tote bag?


Thanks again to Jenn Hales Illustration and Design for another beautiful logo and goody bag design! If you would like to see her creative process you should check out this time lapse video. It’s the making of the super handmaiden and her little friend looking over our fair city. From the first idea through the drawing and painting process, it’s amazing!

A Super Handmaiden special thank you goes to our bag sponsors — with generous donations from DECO Raleigh, Shop Local Raleigh, and City Market, we were able to pass out those pretty pink totes to the first 500 shoppers. We also want to thank Let’s Shop Local, made, and Gather for joining the sponsorship team!

But our biggest shout out goes to YOU, the contributor to our chosen charity Triangle Pets Alive. YOU, who gave a little cash so that Triangle Pets Alive can continue to save the lives of healthy, treatable pets. Together with YOU, we raised $334.00 for their organization. Thank you!

If you have a story to share about your day at The Handmade Market, we would really love to hear from you. If you took photos at the event, we would love for you to add them to The Handmade Market group on Flickr.
