Artisan Alley

What is Artisan Alley?

Artisan Alley 2019

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 Trinity Bazaar ‘Artisan Alley’ has become a launchpad for Columbia’s newest artisan vendors.
