A third annual two day indie market featuring 28+ vendors, selling delightful hand crafted items, art, curated vintage and tasty treats from Bolt Coffee & Knead Donuts.
We have a unique group of vendors from all over New England that include tiki carvers, stain glass, assemblage artists, a tattoo inspired watercolor painter, upcycled kitschy holiday ornaments and holiday, kid friendly magic wands and mystical charms, enamel pin and sticker designers, a button company that uses vintage books, a diverse selection of jewelry designers, artisan textile designers offering handmade apparel and accessories, embroidery, crocheted pieces, handmade greeting cards, hand crafted leather goods, and local illustrators, silkscreened home accessories and artistic candles (just to name a few) as well as vintage dealers offering retro holiday items, clothing, small curiosities and oddities.
The Craft and Kitsch Winter Market runs concurrently with the Pawtucket Arts Collaborative Holiday Member Show featuring works by their members that will be hanging in the gallery space above the vendors. PAC board members will be on site to facilitate sales of art on the walls.
The Masonic Washington Lodge & Tom Butts Tattoo will be on-site collecting unwrapped toys, gently worn kids clothing, art and school supplies to be donated to “Gifts to Give” in Acushnet, MA (an ongoing 9 year relationship between these organizations).
The Craft and Kitsch Winter Market is organized by Angela Zampell of Hot Glue Heroes & Mode Merr Clothing and Tom Butts, a tattooer at Anchor Steam Tattoo in Newport, RI. They are combining their backgrounds of art, crafting, event promotion and small business ownership, to cultivate a community of makers and vendors to create a robust and welcoming two day shopping event.
