This past weekend was the very first indie craft fare to come to Traverse CityóMaker’s Market.
It’s kind of surprising that it’s taken this long actually, TC is known to have a good art vibe and a great community of young adults who are attracted to more indie style.
(of course we’re also “up north” which means a gun show might fare better than a craft show)
But better late than never and it’s finally here, thanks to the initiative and gumption of my good friend Kelly and a few of her compadres.
Seems like the gloomy weather contributed to a merely moderate turnout for the inaguaral event, but based on the caliber of both the organizers and this year’s vendors, this event has a lot of promise for the coming years.
I wasn’t able to participate (a sad but wise decision from earlier this hectic summer) but hopefully next September I’ll be there with some radical prints (like maybe this or†this or this), some t-shirts or some of my handmade lingerie for plus-sized men. (ok, I haven’t started work on that one yet)
Or maybe NoŽl and I can share a table where she can set up some of her handmade purses, etc.
Anybody have a chance to visit the Maker’s Market? What were your favorite finds?
