Shopping Local Couldn’t Be More Fun

I recently shopped the Eastown Street Fair — twice in one day! There were just so many wonderful artisans there that I needed more time to take in all their goods.

I follow a lot of local makers on Instagram and it’s really satisfying seeing a product go from an image on my phone and onto the sales table in front of me. I finally get to hold and see …and even buy!… that item that I watched someone make (even if it was only virtually).

One of my favorite snags was this beautiful green leather bracelet from Grand Rapids-based Hides and Stitches.

Grand Rapids craft shows

I also got soap from my pal at Maggie Ann Soap Co, and my friend got a unique t-shirt at Grow Up Awesome.

You can’t get this stuff at Target, friends!

If you like one-of-a kind goods and shake the hand of the person that made it, keep this list of local craft shows and artist markets in your pocket – there’s a craft show or two going on every weekend!
