The holiday-themed market will feature 50 local artisans and craftsmen November 28th through Christmas Eve.
Chop Suey Books in Carytown is hosting their 10th annual Bizarre Market Holiday this year, a pop-up arts and crafts market featuring local artisans and craftsmen.
From the news release:
Richmond’s snuggly, sparkly, functional, repurposed, delicious and supremely crafty handmade pop-up shop–is in its tenth year this year! Located in the upstairs gallery of Chop Suey Books in Carytown, the pop-up will be open 7 days a week between November 28th and December 24th. The competition for a nook in the miniature wonderland continues to get stiffer, with only 50 spots available to several hundred applicants.
Celebrations will include TINY AUCTION, a special Black Friday opening party, and a Small Business Saturday giveaway series. TINY AUCTION is a fundraiser for the Richmond Young Writers scholarship fund which auctions off handmade, one-of-a-kind items by local artists.
Beloved treasures from years past have included dip-dyed handbags, hand-printed cards/posters/tea towels, needle-felted woodland creatures, vivid porcelain ceramics, leather wallets and cases, crystal-studded terrariums, hand-sculpted silver jewelry, and knitted/crocheted snuggliness of all kinds. Previews of the tightly curated handmade goods will appear daily on the Bizarre Market Facebook page as of early November.
The Bizzare Market Holiday pop-up shop opens at Chop Suey Books, 2913 West Cary Street on November 28th and runs through Christmas Eve. Hours are Monday through Thursday, 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM, Friday and Saturday from 10:00 AM – 8:00 PM, and Sunday from noon – 7:00 PM.
