Craftland Show is when our year round shop in downtown Providence expands to include 50 additional artists. We celebrate all kinds of sparkly handmade objects and the artists who make them.
The 13th Annual Craftland Show takes place in the exact same location as our year round store. During this time the shop takes over the Craftland Gallery to accommodate 50 additional artists and their eclectic assortment of fine crafts and cutting-edge handmade items. This holiday-sized Craftland takes place from November 28 - December 31, 2014. In January we go back to carrying the work of 100 artists.
