Are you an artist or crafter in the Richmond vicinity? If so, this is a great opportunity for you:
The Richmond Craft Mafia is seeking artists and designers who make their own handmade products to participate in “Spring Bada-Bing: The Boss of All CraftShows” from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 22 at The Marquee, 3015 CutshawAve, Richmond. Inside sources say the event is actually part of a conspiracy meant to “rub out the mass produced” and promote small, locally owned, or indie, businesses. Local artists, as well as creative folks from other states, will set up shop to show off wares including pottery, handspun yarn, stationary, handbags, jewelry, baby items, and much more. The Marquee, Richmond’s authentic art deco event venue, located just off Broad Street, offers a fabulous indoor venue for the event. Decorated with antique leather chairs, couches, and other 1930’s style furnishings, the bright airy rooms offer a Great Gatsby-esque atmosphere and create the perfect setting for shoppers to relax and share their new discoveries. Spaces are $65 each. Please note that this is a highly publicized event! Artists and crafts people interested in participating in “The Boss of All Craft Shows”, can find more information and an application online at www.springbadabing.com or www.richmondcraftmafia.com.
