Most of you know that in addition to co-operating Akron Empire, I also organize Crafty Mart, a bi-annual pop-up handmade marketplace downtown Akron. This summer has marked a lot of changes for Crafty Mart-- most notably that we've expanded the number of shows we host and added our first outdoor event which will take place this Saturday. I'm a little nervous but really, really excited!
In the wake of many super cool outdoor crafty events taking place all over our fine state such as The City Flea in Cincinatti, The Columbus Flea and The Cleveland Flea, which everyone should totally check out, I thought we could come up with our own version here in Akron. This was the idea that eventually culminated into Crafty Mart Summer Faire.
In addition to having an outdoor marketplace full of handmade and vintage goodies, classes and workshops will also be offered at Summer Faire, including a yoga + aromatherapy class, a perfume blending class, a terrarium course and more! For more information and to register, click HERE. You can register now through Friday night.
|Make your own terrarium! Sign up here.|
The event will shut down just in time for the Akron Artwalk to start. This Artwalk is extra special since we will finally see the reveal of the Make Your Mark Mural by local tattoo artist Jesse Strother. If you don't already know about that, you can read about it HERE.
As always, admission to Crafty Mart is free, and there's free parking on the street and in the library deck on the corner of Market and High Street. If you want more information, visit Crafty Mart's website. Hope to see you there!
