What is Artisan Alley?
An opportunity for Columbia’s creative folk to ‘pop up’ into Columbia’s cultural landscape during the days leading into busy holiday gift-buying season.
Over 35 years ago, Bazaar-goers shopped at vendor booths on a sidewalk along the State House side of Trinity. Artisan Alley was then called the Sidewalk Shoppes.
Many of those vendors have ‘grown’ up to become thriving businesses. Some currently offer their wares from booths at Soda City. In fact, it wasn’t too long ago that Mary Catherine Kunze was launching her line of one-of-a-kind hand-made handbags, Uniquely MC, at the Trinity Bazaar.
The ‘Sidewalks Shoppes’ have become ‘Artisan Alley’, a launchpad for Columbia’s newest artisan vendors.
Artisan Alley offers the midlands’ newest creators a chance to become visible and find customers.
Artisan Alley offers Bazaar shoppers a chance to discover our city’s freshest creators of food, fashion, and fun:
- hand-crafted jewelry, accessories, and items for home and garden.
- hand-made food, clothing, skin care
- fine and folk art, pottery, and whimsey
