30 Craft Market is a handmade/hand-altered goods show that also allows small press/self-published literature, prints of one's original artwork, and photography in Peterborough, Ontario.
In 30 Craft Market -- a moderately juried show -- some of the items for sale are $30 or less.
The show offers the creations of local artisans, crafters, artists, photographers, and authors for purchase. Our primary purposes are to provide artisans and crafters with a low-cost opportunity to gain direct exposure to the community, connect with the community, and/or sell their creations. We also strive to give residents an opportunity to support their local arts community. All items are handmade, hand-altered, or self-authored.
We also provide free buying/selling/swapping forums as well as craft vendor support on Facebook:
