Libby Wesley Plaza Hosts Crafted on the Ave
There’s a new event being added to the Delray Beach lineup and everyone’s invited! Crafted on the Ave. is coming to Libby Wesley Plaza and is a great opportunity for visitors and locals to get one-on-one action with some of the City’s makers and creators.
Crafted on the Ave. is a new outdoor craft market created to highlight local Delray Beach small and micro-businesses that are merchants/creators of handmade products, art, and other crafts and goods.
“Shopping local and supporting small/home-based businesses matters, and makers and artisans need a cost-effective space to sell their creations,” said Renée A. Jadusingh, Esq., Executive Director for the Delray Beach CRA. “Crafted on the Ave. activates Libby Wesley Plaza so it can provide that space with an emphasis on neighborhood-serving businesses.”
With a targeted focus on the small, home-based, and micro-business community, Crafted on the Ave. is a way to increase exposure for crafters and stimulate and reactivate business activity in the Historic N.W./S.W. Fifth Avenue Business District.
But it’s not all work and no play! There is tons of fun to be had, too, for people of all ages. The market will be a fun, family friendly destination, and will be culturally curated to include the rich heritage, history, and diverse cultures that make up Delray Beach. Crafted on the Ave. will be a place where the family can shop, stroll, and enjoy the day.
There are three Crafted on the Ave. events scheduled for 2022 so far, and include Saturday, January 8, Saturday, February 5 and Saturday, March 5. The event will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. and visitors can expect to enjoy handmade products, confections, art, jewelry, fashion, soaps, skin care, etc. from local and regional creators.
Vendor recruitment is still in progress and the vendor application will be available on the CRA website soon. Vendor fees are $35 for a full 10’x10’ booth and $25 for an 8’x4’ booth, and interested vendors can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
So mark your calendars and help spread the word! Crafted on the Ave. is sure to be just another amazing string of events that help our local businesses and our community grow together!
