The upscale flea market has become a national phenomenon over the last several years with big cities such as New York, LA and Chicago hosting their own, updated versions of a tradition that has been around for quite some time. Dallas has had their own version of the trend as well, but now some very smart people are capitalizing on our communal obsession with unique fashion and decor and kicking it up a notch.
This weekend we’re celebrating the grand opening of the Dallas Handmade Arts Market right here in the Design District, and, even if you’re not in the market for some new goods, you’ll definitely want to check it out.
The Dallas Handmade Arts Market is a weekly indoor market where artists, crafters and designers from the area will have the opportunity to rent a booth either for a single day or multiple weekends to sell their items. Most of these artists have other jobs and will profit from having a regular, weekend venue at which they can set up shop. Naturally there is no better place than the Dallas Design District for the market to call home!
Each weekend, in addition to the artists, the market will also feature live music and complimentary wine during “Wine Walk Saturdays” and beer during “Beer Browse Sundays.” The market promises to be a destination for everyone whether you’re an enthusiast or a casual observer, a local or a tourist.
Finally Dallas/Fort Worth artists have a regular place to come together, and shoppers have a central location to explore and purchase some of the crafty work of emerging, amateur and independent artists, designers and enthusiasts. Who knows, maybe one of the artists we’ll see at the market will have their own boutique in a few years.
The Dallas Handmade Arts Market is open every weekend on Saturday from 10AM to 7 PM and Sunday from 11AM to 5PM in the Design District at 325 Cole St.
