SCC to host The Handmade Marketplace Craft Show on Dec. 14

November 25, 2013

St. Charles Community College is hosting the second annual Handmade Marketplace Craft Show: A Collaboration of Local Artists on Etsy on Saturday, Dec. 14, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. in the College Center Gym. The event is free and open to the public.

This unique craft show features a collaboration of local artists and their crafts found on Etsy, an e-commerce site where people can buy or sell items ranging from art, photography, jewelry, quilts, crafts, toys or anything in between. 

Attendees will discover fine handmade items, watch demonstrations and knock out some holiday shopping – all at the same time. Some local food trucks will be on campus selling lunch and refreshments. 

“Last year’s show was a big success,” said Lynn Watkins, project support specialist at SCC. “More than 80 vendors filled the college gym, selling a wide variety of hand-made items. We expect this year’s show to be even better.”
