Just sending out a courtesy email to let you know that we have deleted our Shoppy Bag account and apologize if you have gotten pulled into this site through our email address. It seems that once someone you know signs up for this site it goes into your email and uses your contacts to claim there are tagged photos of you in order to get you to register--we have been bombarded with emails from them. You can also use a link in their emails to delete your account, which is my suggestion if you haven't already. I don't really understand the point of this site, but I really do not like the hijacking of contacts and misleading emails they send, so I am choosing not to participate. We never share our contact list with anyone, and I regret that this site has been able to use your emails to trick people into thinking we have tagged them in photos and we support this site.
Athens Indie Craftstravaganzaa
Athens Largest Handmade Market.™
Monday, May 9, 2011
We enjoyed a fantastic turnout for our Spring event on Saturday May 7th! Sunny skies and a soft breeze complemented our outdoor market perfectly and kept people flowing throughout the entire day, browsing and buying from the best Athens has to offer in fine arts and crafts.
The Caledonia provided a space for folks to relax and enjoy lunch and cocktails on the patio before taking advantage of our newest features, the Swap-O-Rama-Rama, and the indoor Vintage Market at Craftstravangazaa! Both proved to be an assets that we will be welcoming back and developing for future events.
I took over 700 photos at the event, and am now working on culling, cropping, color correcting, labeling and getting them ready upload to the galleries.
We are excited at the way Craftstravaganzaa continues to grow and collect new fans, and we hope to see you in the Fall!

Athens Indie Craftstravaganzaa Spring 2011 Market is this Saturday!
Please share our facebook event - and invite all your friends! It's going to be a great day!
Athens Indie Craftstravaganzaa is a bi-annual handmade market that brings an eclectic selection of emerging artists and crafters from the South and beyond. At Craftstravaganzaa you won't find any commercially produced or imported goods, only quality items handcrafted by the artists themselves. Expect fine arts and functional pieces, eco-chic fashions and innovative goods made with an eye towards sustainability.
This open-air marketplace event features tasties from local catering company sugarbeet pastry, lovely libations served at the Caledonia Lounge, and DJs to keep the shopping experience lively and fun.
This Spring, something new (and kinda old) at Craftstravaganzaa--we will have vintage vendors selling their one of a kind wares inside of the Caledonia Lounge. The Vintage Market at Craftstravaganzaa has brought together a quality selection of clothing and home items that are at least 20+ yrs old, brought to you by folks who are in the business of picking out the gems from the junk. Dressing rooms will be provided, and you can enjoy drinks while you browse.
Also new this year, Athen's Indie Craftstravaganzaa and Gretchen Elsner have teamed up to bring Swap-O-Rama-Rama to Craftstravaganzaa! The Swap-O-Rama-Rama will be set up inside the Caledonia during our event. Swap-O-Rama-Rama is a clothing swap and series of do-it-yourself workshops in which a community explores creative reuse through the recycling of used clothing. Bring a $3-5 donation and bag of clothes or notions, and yourself and let's make some what-not!
All ages welcome!
We hope you'll enjoy these added features and support our Vintage Market as well as you do our Handmade Market!
Friends and family, old and young will find plenty of reasons to spend the day enjoying activities in this compact market on the corner of Clayton & Pulaski Streets. Keep it fresh and keep it local--be part of your community at Craftstravaganzaa!
