The energy and creativity of Renee Dittrich, NostalgicSummer, is endless.  Her latest endeavor is organizing and managing a Traveling Handmade Bazaar!  Renee has engaged a number of artists and crafters to participate in the bazaars.  Each bazaar will be fresh and unique and will feature different artists and crafters depending on when and where the event takes place.

Renee is proud to announce that the first event will be held at The Bean Coffee & Wine Cafe in Andover on Monday, May 21 from 5:00 to 9:00 pm.  You will be able to shop for handmade jewelry, art, candles, kitchen decor and other treasures while enjoying some supreme refreshments.  The Bean will be offering wine and appetizer specials to all of its customers!  What a way to start your week.

The HandmadeMN artists that are participating in this event are:
  • DeederTheBeader - beaded jewelry and home decor using paper beads from Rwanda, as well as other glass, stone and metal beads
  • Nostalgic Summer - vintage inspired jewelry
  • HandmadeBits4u - unique hand-chenilled potholders, microwave bowl potholders, and more

Looks like fun, and what a clever idea. I hope one pops up in my area (South Mpls.) sometime!

These types of handmade bazaar are so useful because at a place they can buy different types of jewellery an other things.
