Indie Craft Parade Holiday Pop Up Shop offers handmade gift options

GREENVILLE, S.C. – If you love handmade items, the Indie Craft Parade Holiday Pop Up Shop is the place for you! The Makers Collective’s temporary store features the work of over 100 artists and makers.

“If you’re familiar with Indie Craft Parade, it’s the whole festival vibe. We kind of take that and shift it into a retail version for November and December. So, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from now until Christmas, the shop will be open from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. And we brought all of the makers items here. So, we kind of have a sampling of over 100 artists’ pieces in here. Everything from jewelry to kids stuff to artisan food to kind of anything and everything you want,” Lib Ramos, with Makers Collective, said.

This is a great place to find a unique gift, while supporting the person who made it.

Some of the items you’ll find in the shop include:

  • artwork
  • artisan foods and drinks
  • bath & beauty items
  • clothing and accessories
  • home goods
  • jewelry
  • kitchen items
  • pottery/ceramics
  • puzzles
  • stationary
  • and much more!

“If you want a little gift basket for somebody or you’re like ‘I don’t know what to get this person, but everyone loves food.’ You can get a little bit of this and a little bit of that and kind of put it all together and know that it’s all from small-batch makers and artisans,” Ramos said.

The Makers Collective will also hold three outdoor mini markets on Nov. 19, Dec. 3, and Dec. 10 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. The mini markets will feature more than 25 makers.

“If you really like that festival experience, we’re also doing mini markets,” Ramos explained. “We’ll still have the shop going on and then in the green space right next to the building, we’ll have about 25 makers set up outside with tents. So you kind of get the best of both worlds. You get to shop retail, you can go meet the makers hanging out out there. We’ve got a coffee person and a food vendor to go with it to kind of make that whole festival experience. So, you can come do both on those weekends.”

As Livin’ Upstate Host Jamarcus Gaston likes to say, this store allows you to put your money where your heart is.

The shop is located at 2909 Old Buncombe Road in Greenville. To learn more, visit makerscollective.org and follow Makers Collective on Facebook and Instagram.
