Want to shop the day after Thanksgiving but dread the long lines, parking mayhem, and frantic shoppers?
Come to Handmade Harvest, a FREE family-friendly alternative to the chaos of "Black Friday" at The Lunch Studio! Ten local Flint Handmade vendors will be selling their unique handmade goods, including jewelry, children's toys, paper crafts, purses/totes and much more! Flint Handmade encourages everyone to give handmade gifts for the holidays, so this is a great opportunity to find something special for the friends and family on your shopping list!
We'll even make it easy and comfortable with FREE goodie bags for the first 25 shoppers, FREE craft activities for the kids, and FREE cider and donuts for all. The Lunch Studio will be selling delicious soups and sandwiches to keep your tummy full while you shop!
Along with all the shopping and free stuff will be a LIVE AUCTION to raise funds for Flint Handmade. The auction will start at 1pm with items valued at $5 to $50 from our featured vendors, local businesses and other friends of Flint Handmade. Bidding will start at half the retail price.
Handmade Harvest is on Friday, November 27, 2009 from 11am-3pm at the Lunch Studio in Downtown Flint (444 S. Saginaw, Flint, MI 48502). We hope to see you there!
Flint Handmade seeks to nurture a local handmade economy and environment in Flint by organizing and promoting craft markets, offering opportunities for social crafting and creative expression, and educating the public about the personal and commercial value of handcrafting.
