October 27, 2012        HandmadeMN Fall Market

HandmadeMN is a one day retail marketplace bringing shoppers the best of the Twin Cities indie craftscene.  Now more than ever, shoppers are connecting with the personal story behind the goods they love and the artists creating them. 

HandmadeMN, a collective of Minnesota artists, brings new and undiscovered goods from over 45 juried vendors to their 5th annual Market on October 27 at the Uptown VFW in Minneapolis.

The indie craft movement has grown each year with the help of online markets like Etsy.com.   Etsy empowers the small, independent artists through personal online storefronts where millions of dollars of handmade goods are sold each year.  Over 350 Minnesota entrepreneurs are members of the Etsy collective called HandmadeMN.
