Art Ville Spring Craft Market to Provide Variety of Options

by Shanine Sealey

This April, the first ever Art Ville Spring Craft Market will be taking place in Martensville. On April 14th, a group of local artisans will be at the North Ridge Community Centre from 10am-4pm offering a wide variety of handmade, homemade and artisanal products. There will also be some Kidpreneurs attending the event, who will be showcasing their products.

Organizers Amy Krieger, and her daughter Chloe McMillan, began advertising this event earlier this year, and in just over a week, they had filled the hall with vendors interested in attending.

“We were really blown away with the interest. We have 57 vendors with a total of 74 tables of amazing handmade items. We’ve got embroidery, clothing, macramé, birdhouses & feeders, jewelry, candles, 3D printing, laser engraving, woodworking, silversmithing, pottery, crocheting, artwork, writers, body & self-care products, baking, decals and more. It will really, truly include a little bit of everything. When we say that the market’s lineup is incredible, it is an understatement,” the Art Ville Spring Craft Market organizers explained.

Both Krieger and McMillan have a love of being creative within their side businesses; Wonderland Wicks and Bad Stitch Club, so decided they wanted to create a day where others could experience shopping with others, who are like-minded, and have created beautiful things. “We really enjoyed working together to see our vision come together for this fun day.”

Due to this event already being such a success when it comes to vendor involvement, there are already plans to potentially host a fall market as well.

In addition to the variety of vendors, Krieger and McMillan are looking forward to having representatives from the Pop-Up Rescue Project attend the event, along with some of their furry friends that are available for adoption. “If people are looking for a canine companion, this is the perfect opportunity to meet some of the dogs who are looking for their forever home.”

Entry to attend this event will be $2/person, with 12 & under free. There are vendor showcases posted regularly on the ‘Art Ville Craft Market’ Facebook page, so you can begin making your shopping list in advance.
