The Indie Craft Experience Summer Market is celebrating it’s 14th anniversary this June. The market, founded by Christy Petterson and Shannon Mulky in 2005, gives crafters an opportunity to sell and promote their original, hand-made items in a curated environment.
As regular DaFC readers know, we are huge fans of ICE and their multitude of events throughout the year, from Salvage (their vintage market) to Wedding Day Hooray (their wedding event). Their namesake event approaching this summer, Indie Craft Experience, remains the most popular among shoppers and independent crafters alike. Hosted twice a year, once during the summer and again during the holiday season, the Indie Craft Experience will be held June 2-3, 2012 at Ambient Plus Studio in Atlanta.
“You’ll see some of your old favorites at the Indie Craft Experience but we have some new talent in the mix as well,” said co-founder of the Indie Craft Experience, Christy Petterson. “It’s our goal to spotlight the most talented crafters not only in Atlanta but in every region of the country as well.”
This year they have an added element of cool, an Art Swap during the event: Attendees can bring a piece of art and exchange it for something new — totally free. Spruce up your place and check out some great local finds.
Their popular swag bags are also returning. The first 250 people to arrive each day will walk away with a tote designed by either Sarah Keys of Ibby & Rufus or The Argyle Academy. King of Pops, Good Food Truck and Ursa Minor Coffee will be on site for your munchie needs.
