In the weeks leading up to Detroit Urban Craft Fair in late November we were developing a very exciting change to our new year. Creator, show-runner and founder of VLNTNSDYMRKT Lisa Waud reached out to Bethany and I about the offer to hand over her event for us to adopt. She shared, “…after six successful markets, I know the Detroit community is interested and supportive of a market for the mid-winter holiday, and the market would be best managed for growth if I handed over the reins to the fierce team that host Detroit Urban Craft Fair.”
It took about 10 seconds for us to accept! We’ve both participated in VMKTs past, beginning in 2013, and love the feel of a winter show with creatives that may be feeling cooped up a bit over our Michigan winter.
HD intends to keep the vendor aspect with a marketplace to shop for your sweeties, and include some make and take areas, mini workshops for beginners and master-craftster tutorials, game areas and fun for all.
$1 will get you in to shop our market, but the wristband admission will give you a seat at any of our special features! More details to come!
This is a one-day event at our original DUCF home base, the newly remodeled Majestic Theatre! Happy tears emoji! (There isn’t one, but I can picture it.)
Sunday, February 10, 2019, from noon-5pm! Please mark your calendars and join us for this mash up annual/launch event!!
Yours in the Crafty revolution, Carey & Bethany
