Long Live the Babes: craftHER Market Spring '17 Recap
Last weekend, we hosted craftHER Market Spring '17, our second-ever pop-up space for self-identified women to sell their goods. With a full day of panels, a killer venue and 💥kickass attendees💥, more than 2600 folks attended. Didn't make it out? No worries—we've got you.
This year, we showcased more than 100 vendors (!!!), featuring a wide variety of makes, from furniture to wall hangings to leather works. You can check out our full lineup here.
Our market's also a little different than most. We offer tables to other markets and community resources, so makers have the opportunity to connect with organizers beyond our market. We also produce industry-specific panels, each centering on issues and important topics within the maker community. Take a peek at this spring's panels and learn more about the speakers we featured.
See that wall hanging on the stage? That's a screen-printed, 5x5 reproduction of a piece made by our featured artist this month and one of the market's speakers, Xochi Solis.
Last but not least, we have to recognize the talented and dedicated team at Fair Market. Without their support, we would not be able to produce this market with low-cost booth rental fees for all of our vendors. (Thank you!)
PS: Our vendors set up in a storm. The weather cleared when we opened, but they were real troupers, proving once again that come hell or high water women are tough AF.
