The Queen City Craft Bazaar moved to ArtsRiot in Burlington VT for the holiday 2013 show. We had 26 amazing vendors, food and drinks by ArtsRiot and live music by Quiet Lion. All photos by Matt Bogosian
Wow what an experience! Thank you to all our wonderful customers who came out to support local indie craft last weekend. The event exceeded my expecatations. I went to the new ArtsRiot space during their opening at the Art Hop a few months ago. I stood there in the middle of the room, drink in hand, music playing, watching crowds of people mingle with friends and I had a vision. I texted my friend Maggie and said "I think I've found the new home for the Queen City Craft Bazaar." The next morning I could not get this vision out of my head. I knew it would be a big risk to move the show, but I felt so strongly that it was time and I knew ArtsRiot was the place for it.
This is the 7th year of the Queen City Craft Bazaar. For the most of those years it's been bi-annual. Not only have we changed the location, but our goal is to also change (increase) the frequency of the shows. Keep checking back for details. If you don't follow us on Facebook yet now is the time to start!
If you haven't checked out all the photos from the show you can find them here.
Thank you to Maggie for agreeing to come along this ride with me.
Thank you again to the amazing vendors who took the chance on this new journey and to our customers who followed us to the new location and those who found us for the first time.
Thanks to ArtsRiot for letting me bring my vision to life
Thanks to Quiet Lion for the lovely music
Thanks to Matt Bogosian for taking beautiful photos.
We are VERY excited to announce that Quiet Lion will be performing at the Queen City Craft Bazaar during our closing reception on November 23rd at ArtsRiot. Shopping starts at 10am then from 4-6pm the music will be added. There will also be a cash bar so come on down and enjoy free music, shop from our vendors and enjoy a tasty beverage.
