SPRINGTIME IN THE COUNTRY
Celebrate Spring at the 19th Annual Artisan Market
Hamburg, N.Y. – Longer days, warmer weather and a blooming landscape always brings a refreshing sense of endless possibilities for the coming year. And whether you are looking to rejuvenate your home, your garden or yourself, there is no better way to celebrate Spring than at the 19th Annual Springtime in the Country Artisan Market, April 5-7th at the Event Center at the Hamburg Fairgrounds.
Ranked once again as one of the top 25 events in the nation, this year’s edition of Springtime in the Country boasts even more artisans than last year, with products including metal works, original wall art, custom furniture, designer jewelry, home décor, spa quality bath and beauty products, gourmet foods, children’s clothing, pottery and so much more. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, Springtime in the Country promises to be the perfect destination for seasonal gift buying.
Community marketplaces have enjoyed a resurgence over the past several years, as people look to keep their purchases meaningful and local. “The artisan participation in this year’s event is overwhelming,” notes Daniel Kaczynski of Premier Promotions. “We have attracted many new artisans. The show is not only very different, but also much larger” added Kaczynski.
Springtime in the Country Artisan Market features artisans from 17 different states. They include a number of exhibitors who have never exhibited in Western New York including: Dean Barkley from Hartland, Michigan (3D functional metal art), Valerie Lynch-Beaudin from Panama City Florida (handcrafted Celtic treasure boxes), Neville and Margarette Sinclair from Gaithersburg, Maryland (handmade lavender skincare), Eric and Lauren Woods from Buffalo (local vintage ad reproductions) and Joanne Atkinson from Westwood Massachusetts (Bloody Mary Mud).
Springtime in the Country is Friday, April 5 from 4-9 pm and Saturday and Sunday April 6 and 7 from 10 am-5 pm at the Fairgrounds Event Center in Hamburg.
Admission is $6 for adults and seniors and complimentary return passes are available at the show’s information booth. Children under 12 are free.
