Thank you to all the fine folks who came to Crafty Supermarket on Saturday! Our 50 vendors from across the country brought their A game, and we brought our credit cards. About 1,400 shoppers came out to be with us on the beautiful spring day, and we had extra visitors in the form of three gigantic bean bags called PLOP! (They’ll be on the CCAC lawn for the next few weeks.)
Our wonderful sponsors helped make it all happen, and DJ Ben Davis kept us grooving all day. Thank you to Pinwheel Print Shop for designing our swag totes and Aaron Kent of DIY Printing for screenprinting them! We love how SPRING they turned out:
Big hugs go out to our volunteers for helping us set up and keep things running smoothly! Thanks to Indigo Hippo, ArtWorks Cincinnati, the Contemporary Arts Center education team and Cut and Sewn for helping everybody get crafty with hands on activities all day!
Here are a few more of our favorite photos from the day:
It's always so inspiring to chat with other artists and makers :) So glad we got to stop by the @craftysupermkt, today! Snagged some goodies including a birthday gift, Mother's Day gifts and a little something for myself. Loved this bracelet from @cincygirlstyle and had to get it as a daily reminder to keep going no matter what 💗 The kids also had a great time drawing dream murals at the @artworkscincy booth and making glitter jars at the @indigohippo booth – thanks for the fun!! 🎨✨
Because our usual holiday venue of Music Hall is going under renovation this summer, our next show will be at a new venue! On Nov. 19, 2016, we’ll be taking over the gymnasium in the UC Recreation Center, in the heart of the University of Cincinnati campus in Clifton Heights. Application info for vendors will be posted in July. Stay crafty!

PS! If you love the Clifton Cultural Arts Center as much as we do, please follow the Friends of the CCAC Facebook page to stay up to date on their fight to stay in their building. There is a very real danger that the CCAC could be kicked out of its home of nearly a decade. Speak up and tell the school board why you love the CCAC!
