whether you are a maker or a shopper of handmade goods, there is good news for everyone. the rust belt market is a new business model opening in ferndale that features year-round vending/shopping every saturday and sunday from 11-7. mark those calendars, the grand opening is the weekend of may 7th!
the site offers space rental opportunites for artists to sell their handmade goods. not only does this fabulousness foster the DIY ethic, but also a sense of community, collaboration and connection.
stay tuned to their website, facebook, and twitter pages for updates. i really look forward to seeing what becomes of this venture! (and i look forward to being a vendor on may 7!)
