No wonder The Contemporary Crafts Market’s has lasted 35 years. CEO/Founder Roy Helms says success and longevity are fueled by the public demand for artisanal, timeless traditions. “When the human element is at hand, magic happens. We want the public to know this is fine craft: museum-quality products you won’t find anywhere else. The ultimate luxury is always made by hand. Yet, at The Contemporary Crafts Market, we offer prices for everyone. Whether you want fine jewelry, a hand-loomed rug, hand-sewn leather jackets, clothing, ceramic dishware or blown-glass, we have it all. A feast for the senses awaits you. I first created this show because I could never find anything I wanted at the usual stores. Turns out, I wasn’t alone.”
The Market’s venue in historic Old Pasadena is within walking distance of restaurants, galleries and the local haunts where you may do some early Halloween trick or treating, too. Speaking of “spirits,” The Contemporary Crafts Market proudly partners with VING Vodka, also hand-crafted and American-made.
Tickets for The Contemporary Crafts Market are $8 at the door of the Exhibit Hall at Pasadena Convention Center, located at 300 E Green St. in Pasadena. Parking, accessibility and food are also available. Learn more at CraftSource.net, Instagram: @contemporarycraftsmarket.
