The All Handmade Marketplace is hosted by myself Carissa and my Husband Matthew along with my family. I am a stay-at-home Mom of 3 boys. I started the Marketplace in 2016 when I realized there was not a great event in the area that not only showcased products and businesses that were home based and handmade but that also were affordable for vendors and shoppers.
I also have a small shop (Toad & Turtle) through which I create my own crochet patterns and designs and sell them as well. I do my best to plan events that will benefit artisans and shoppers alike; using my experience from attending craft shows with my own small business.
Our goal is to host markets that help handmade businesses to grow and make connections with each other and the local community. Shoppers can benefit from a wide variety of uniquely, handmade items, entertainment and an overall exciting experience where we can support businesses and modern makers.
I look forward to seeing you at our next Marketplace!!
