Holiday Markets!

The question we've heard more than anything since the Horseshoe Craft and Flea Market is "when is the next Horseshoe Market?" and "are you doing a holiday market?" We love these questions since it means you all want more!! We will be giving you more Horseshoe Markets starting in the Spring (no holiday market this year), but we wanted to make sure to spread the word about all of the fantastic holiday craft markets happening in the area. Yay for handmade art, crafts and for local markets!

  1. thank you SO Much for loving on your slightly northern sisters! We are so excited to host several of the Horseshoe artists and some new folks too. We made a facebook page to share ALL art community events if anyone wants to join or submit and event :)

  2. this is AWESOME info! We don't have any Holiday markets here in the Springs...weird!? When you get a chance, let me know what your market dates are for 2011...I'm mapping out where we'll be selling right now! -diane

  3. I want to go to all of them!! I'm so happy to be here in CO where we have handmade craft events, I've lived in too many places that don't have any kind of indie scene to speak of, and it's wonderful to have lots to choose from!

  4. Also Check out the Fine and Funky Market in Fort Collins!

    Its held at the Opera Galleria 123 North College Avenue Fort Collins, Co
    There are a TON of days to satisfy all your shopping needs!

    Friday November 26 from 11am-6pm
    Saturday November 27 from 10am-6pm
