Featuring over 100 designers selling their wares, a fashion show, live music by Phil Cook & His Feat and The Small Ponds and a bevy of food trucks!
If you aren’t familiar with the amazing local arts scene, you are seriously missing out! These designers work tirelessly to churn out original, quality products that will wow even the pickiest of gift-receivers. And by shopping the market, you’ll be supporting local businesses in the process. Win win.
Annnnd speaking of winning, I have two items to give away from some awesome Rock & Shop Vendors! Yippee!
First up from Biophilia Designs is a Children’s Garden Kit. This awesome educational kit for older kids “teaches gardening skills, the life cycle of plants, ecology, companion planting, and most importantly introduces children to the history of the native people of America.”
Secondly, the fine folks at Zoe Girl Designs have offered up this adorable Circus Boys diaper cover set! Hand made with care, this set is sure to be a crowd pleaser as a gift or for your little one.
To enter, leave a comment with your favorite local (to you) shop.
I hope to see you in Durham on the 17th!
