Shop for unique handcrafted gifts from local artists and designers at The Handmade Market on April 23rd.


RALEIGH, N.C. – NC design and craft collective, The Handmaidens, announce the 11th semiannual installment of The Handmade Market.

Applicants will be juried into The Handmade Market with a focus on local and regional artists. In the past, the designers have represented such diverse groups of modern handcrafts including jewelry, baby and kid’s goods, men and women’s apparel, fashion accessories, home goods, fine art and stationery.


The event also includes a fundraiser to benefit Toxic Free NC. This local nonprofit’s goal is to get rid of pesticide pollution, in our water, our food and our bodies through education, governmental influence and community knowledge.  In the past we have raised thousands of dollars for various local charities.


Since its inception in 2006, The Handmade Market quickly has become one of the Southeast’s most highly anticipated shopping events. The Handmade Market is produced by The Handmaidens and is made possible with support from the Downtown Raleigh Alliance, Ornamentea, The Raleigh Downtowner Magazine, Yelp, The B Keeps Us Honest and High Park Restaurant.


The application deadline is March 13, 2011. For a list of last November’s participating designers, comments, customer feedback and application information, please visit:
