HandmadeMN Spring Market
Featuring Distinctive Made-in-Minnesota Items By Local Etsy Artists
Shoppers continue to seek out distinctive handmade merchandise for themselves, family members and friends. HandmadeMN, a collective of Minnesotan artists, is excited to bring their handmade merchandise to the local market once again on May 5 where shoppers can buy handmade merchandise from over 45 juried artisans. HandmadeMN artisans also sell their products on Etsy.com, the world’s largest online marketplace of handmade merchandise.
There will be two floors of locally-made items including jewelry, paper goods, toys, clothing, photography, home décor, soaps, artwork, accessories, and more.
Over 350 Minnesota entrepreneurs are members of the Etsy collective called HandmadeMN, which is hosting its Spring Market at the Uptown VFW in Minneapolis on May 5.
The first 25 attendees will receive gift bags with handmade items from HandmadeMN members; in addition, a drawing will be held for two handmade gift baskets valued at over $150 each.
