We hate to see you go, but if graduation means packing up and leaving town, we have lovely pieces to help you remember your time here fondly.

The countdown to Mother’s Day is upon us.  While every mom appreciates a hand drawn card, why not go all out for the woman who goes all out for you.

As extra fun, we are making the store even more fanciful. On Saturday May 9 and Sunday May 10 we are providing shoppers with MOMosas (otherwise known as mimosas to the non-mom crowd).

Assorted and colorful jewelry from Patricia Locke


Fashionable and a garden enthusiast? This Brooch can be planted after wearing.


Mamma and baby bird necklaces from Figs and Ginger


Mom not a green thumb? Why not choose these colorful felted cacti? They never need water.


Mamma Bear shirts from Maisonwares


Let mom show off her state pride with pins and necklaces from DA Metals


And don’t forget a card, mom will thank you!

This year Cinco de Mayo comes a few days early in Providence. Join Craftland and the rest of the Westminster Street block on Saturday, May 2 for tacos, festivities, and of course, the annual Craftland Pinata.



The Pinata busting happens at 2PM, and those that join the fun will be rewarded with candy and gift cards from local businesses.

Looking for something a little less fragile to celebrate the holiday? We have a sweet-as-sugar skull measuring spoon set from The Tim Woodsman.

Well friends, we made it through a seemingly endless winter.  Hello Spring, you couldn't be more welcome!  And, just like the first hints of green popping up, our application has finally come out of hibernation!  So, if you've been hunkered down creating glorious new things, and would like to be a part of Craftland, apply now!

Craftland is made up of both a large, month-long holiday Show featuring the work of more than 160 artists, and a fabulous year-round Shop selling a smaller selection of carefully curated work.

If you are interested in selling at our year-round shop, please submit the below form to our curators.  We absolutely love seeing fresh new things!  To be considered, you must fill out this form. Please have one web-quality (not print-quality) image in jpg form, as well as your website address ready.  Ready? GO! 

We do not accept samples or submissions dropped off in the store.

If your work is approved, we will contact you via email within 3 weeks. Please note: because of the large volume of submissions we receive, we can only contact approvals.
