Shop Local & Shop Handmade this weekend in Shepherdstown

By Staff | Sep 4, 2015

It’s going to be another beautiful weekend to be out and about in historic downtown Shepherdstown! While shopping and enjoying all the unique independent and locally-owned shops and eateries the town has to offer, be sure to swing by the Shepherdstown Community Club’s 1st Weekend Handmade Market. Here, local and regional artists, artisans and crafters come together Sept. 5 – 6 at the War Memorial Building, 102 E. German Street to sell their quality handmade creations. The Handmade Market is open Saturday from 10am-7pm and Sunday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. There is always free admission.

There will be a variety of beautiful handmade goods in the delightfully curated market. The featured creative makers for this weekend’s Handmade Market are: Susan Carney (original art, monoprints, paintings, cards), Even Rose Love (exquisite hand-forged and formed metal and stone jewelry), Linda Slothower (felted purses, scarves, headbands), Legend Mountain (soft sculpture dolls, folk art and seasonal home decor), Happy Cat Glass (stained glass suncatchers and panels), Nature’s Inspirations (statement jewelry made with fair-trade components) and Creative Art and Soul (dog leash holders, wall plaques). For more information, visit the Shepherdstown Community Club Handmade Market Facebook page at facebook.com/SCCHandmadeMarket.

The Handmade Market is sponsored by the Shepherdstown Community Club (SCC), a non-profit community organization of men and women founded in 1945 (formerly known as the Men’s Club). Monies collected from sellers’ space fees go towards the maintenance and operation of the historic War Memorial Building, an important civic and community hub in downtown Shepherdstown, and the 21-acre public access Morgan’s Grove park.
