Twice a year a group of talented independent designers called, The Handmaidens, organize The Handmade Market. The Handmade Market features the best and brightest artists, independent designers, and crafters from NC and beyond. In May 2006 the first Handmade Market featured 35 selected designers offering products from baby clothes to jewelry.
Today the Handmade Market continues to grow and is one of the best semiannual shopping events in the Raleigh area. The market occurs once in the spring (perfect for Mother’s Day shopping) and once again in the fall (perfect for Holiday shopping).
