HandmadeMN is excited to announce that we have scheduled our HandmadeFall Market on October 22 at the Ballentine VFW (2916 Lyndale Ave S) in Minneapolis from 10:00 am - 5:00 pm.
Our Gift Baskets and Swag Bags will be back too!!
Two, yes 2, lucky visitors will be the recipients of our Gift Baskets! These contain many handmade products that have been generously donated by our HandmadeMN members and will be worth about $150 each. To qualify, all you need to do is to have your HandmadeMN Passport stamped by 3 vendors upstairs and 3 vendors downstairs - no purchase necessary. Although I highly suspect you won't be able to avoid the temptation to buy something at the market!
Additionally, the first 25 visitors to the market will receive Swag Bags that will be filled with even more handmade product from our HandmadeMN members! At our last market, we had shoppers lined up at both the front door and the back door well before opening in hopes of snagging one. People were absolutely ecstatic about the contents!
So, what might you find in your Gift Basket or your Swag Bag? Here are some possibilities as the donations from our team members are already rolling in!
Cindy Lindgren has donated boxed card sets and individual cards for the baskets and swag bags. Wouldn't you love to have a set of these for the upcoming holidays?
Take a look at this donation from Christy of RedShoes26design. Will you be one of the lucky recipients of these fabulous Spoonbridge and Cherry Sculpture cards?
Looking for a bit of Halloween kitchen decor? Look no further than these hand-chenilled potholders from Sharon of GrandmasCraftGarden!
