Art shop. Buy local!
Mel McMahon Stone, Indiana Originals brings us the Hoosier Artisan Online Vacation Marketplace!
The Hoosier Artisan Boutique concept was designed by a group of local artists who have found camaraderie and support for their craft on the Etsy.com website. The inaugural event took place on Saturday October 17, 2009 at the Mansion at Oak Hill in Carmel, IN and attracted approximately 1,000 buyers. Because the purpose of the event is to showcase the diverse artistic talent of Indiana, the Hoosier Artisan Boutique requires that participating artists live in Indiana and no commercially produced items are accepted for this event. by hand with jury.
Megan Martin, the organizer of the show, is herself an artist and wants this event to be beneficial both for the participating artisans and for the community that supports this event. She attended the first Hoosier Artisan Boutique in 2009 as a co-coordinator and has been the sole organizer since 2010. That same year, American Express launched Small Business Saturday and the decision to move the event date to Saturday after. Thanksgiving has been taken. Over the past ten years, the event has grown from 40 booths to over 90, with a record number of artisan attendees and sales in 2019. Due to unforeseen events in 2020, Hoosier Artisan Boutique has moved online! Buy local and shop now at hoosierartisanboutique.com!
