Preview the 2014 Indiana Artisan Marketplace and Win Tickets!
I was honored to be selected to share a preview of the 2014 Indiana Artisan Marketplace that will be held March 29-30 in the Expo Hall at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. I am also very excited to be giving away one set of two free tickets and one free single ticket to the event. Use the Rafflecopter widget shared below to enter. Please note that this is a quickie give-away. Entries must be received before Tuesday, March 25 at 10 pm so I can mail the tickets to the winner in time.
I don’t promote many events, so here’s a list of reasons I chose to promote the Indiana Artisan Marketplace:
- It features over 150 local artisans who live and work in Indiana and Kentucky.
- It is low priced ($10 per ticket with free entry for children aged 14 and under) with booths that will appeal to the entire family.
- It is a juried show, meaning artisans must apply to exhibit. All artisans submit samples of their work to a panel of judges as part of the jurying process. Only artisans providing the highest quality handmade goods are selected to participate.
- It has one of the broadest variety of handmade foods, jewelry, clothing, metalwork, pottery, household goods, woodwork, decorations, instruments and other wares I’ve ever seen.
- It’s in a location that’s easy to access and which has ample parking.
- It is a show the artists respect more than any other.
Here are details about the show:
