At aftcra we love supporting local artists and their cool handmade goods, so we put together a short list of indie craft fairs that are happening throughout the remainder of 2014. Why not peruse some of your local maker’s awesome handmade pieces while venturing out into the beautiful, crisp fall weather and being surrounded by pumpkins, corn husks and apple cider?
Whether you’re interested in handmade jewelry, rustic pallet artwork, or wooden cutting boards, you’re bound to find something unique at these fairs. And, if you’re a planner, you can start finding unique gifts for the holidays at your local indie craft fair.
This isn’t a comprehensive list of indie craft fairs, but just a handful of the ones that we enjoy. If you have an indie craft fair in your area that isn’t listed below, feel free to share it in the comments!
Dates: September 13 – 14
Location: Greenville, SC
This indie craft fair features local makers in the Greenville community. This is a juried craft fair, so all participants had to be approved by a panel of established artists. Also, all pieces must be handmade at the Indie Craft Parade, so if you’re looking for vintage or antique work this probably isn’t the fair for you.
With cool products like handmade stationery, wall prints, ceramics, jewelry and artisan foods, you will be completely overwhelmed with the talent that lives in your neighborhood. One of our favorite artists, Sarah Mandell of Once Again Sam, is a featured maker of handmade jewelry and cool felted pieces.
