San Diego Indie Craft Market stitches Queen Bee
North Park venue hosts nearly 40 vendors selling handmade wares Sunday
“All merchandise sold at the Indie Craft Market must be a form of handmade... Somehow, it must be a product that you reproduced and not something that is mass reproduced,” reads the vendor guidelines.
On Sunday, June 23, the very first San Diego Indie Craft Fair Market will invade Queen Bee's Arts & Cultural Center (3925 Ohio Street) from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Put on by the folks at the San Diego Vintage Flea Market, this homemade vendor paradise features 38 local artisans and crafters who will be situated both inside and on the patio of Queen Bee’s.
More of a crafting community rather than a selling competition amongst vendors, the driving force behind Lefty Lex Creations has proved this point.
She has made it her personal goal to get the word out about the first ever San Diego Indie Craft Fair Market as best she can and has dedicated much space on her blog, 11 entries to be exact, to highlight a few of the SDICM vendors.
The list of participating creative heads is long, but included below - along with links to Lefty Lex’s vendor interviews - for all of those that “don’t do” Facebook or want to get to know the vendors a little better:
