I looooove craft fairs! I get such a thrill planning which craft fairs I’m going to and the inspired boost I get from seeing all the creative people bringing their passions to life. I love talking to the makers and hearing their stories behind what they’ve made. Having a connection to the things I’ve purchased for myself or as gifts provides depth and meaning. It gives me so much more pleasure than buying from a faceless retailer.
I love craft fairs so much, that in past years, we turned the studio into a blissed out holiday fair the first Sunday of December. We had live DJs, massage, games, prizes, hot cider & treats, and of course the sweetest collective of local makers. In true Bliss style, this was always an event that turned into an occasion to mingle with friends and find connection.
Obviously, this year we can’t do that (#thankscovid) and I’m quite sad about it. This year would have been our 5th year of the Holiday Bliss Pop-Up Craft Fair.
My sadness can hardly compare to the struggle that all of our favorite makers are feeling right now! So, I decided to reach out to our past list of vendors and see who was still offering their wares online.
