Crafty Feast Announces Vendors for 10th Annual Indie Craft Fair on Sunday, Dec. 9

Shop and stroll on Sunday, Dec. 9 at Crafty Feast, Columbia, S.C.’s one-stop handmade shopping market for thousands of attendees

Nov. 15, 2018 (COLUMBIA, S.C.) – Nearly 100 makers of handcrafted goods from across the Southeast and beyond will join the 10th annual handmade indie craft fair Crafty Feast on Sunday, Dec. 9, from noon to 6 p.m. at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center in Columbia, S.C.

Known for funky, one-of-a-kind offerings and unique gifts for loved ones, Crafty Feast will host the jury-vetted merchants and nearly 2,700 attendees for a one-day-only market in the center of downtown Columbia in its Vista district at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.

Of the 96 makers, 27 are new to Crafty Feast for the 2018 event, 75 are from outside of Columbia, and 29 are from outside of South Carolina – traveling from Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina and Florida.

Crafty Feast, produced by the women-owned firm, Flock and Rally: Integrated Communications for a Brave New South, started in 2009 and has been a holiday shopping staple ever since.

“When we founded Crafty Feast a decade ago, our goal was to be an outlet for emerging makers to connect with a Columbia audience,” said Flock and Rally co-founding partner and Crafty Feast founder Debi Schadel. “It makes me happy to see an event focused on unique, off-the-grid crafts grow from an outdoor community festival to a Midlands holiday tradition for thousands of people.”

New vendors include Lovelane Designs, a children’s playwear screen printer that uses water-based inks and natural cottons from Savannah, G.A.; Ratbee Press, which creates letter-pressed cards and prints in Asheville, N.C.; and hand-embroiderer The Darling Collective from Columbia, S.C.

Returning vendors include CandleBravo, which hand-pours soy wax candles with cotton wicks from Charlotte, N.C.; artisan grass-fed beef jerky maker Two Brothers Jerky from Columbia, S.C.; and Allison Brynn Ross Illustration and Design, which hand twists wire sculptures and mounts them on reclaimed and repurposed wood, from North Charleston, S.C.

While checking off all the boxes on that holiday shopping list, attendees will enjoy tunes provided by DJ Dr. P (Rockafellas-era music expert Scott Padgett).

Admission to Crafty Feast is $3 for adults and free for children 10 and under.
