Bijou Market - Handmade event Utah
One thing I love about living in Utah (besides the great home decor & thrift shopping) is the crazy amount of talented people that I'm so blessed to be surrounded by. There are so many fabulous ways to socialize with like-minded women here in this wonderful state and the Bijou Market is no exception. If you live in Utah and you haven't had a chance to experience the Bijou Market, then you've been missing out.
The Bijou Market was founded by three young mothers (7 boys and no girls between them!) in 2009.
The Bijou Market has quickly risen from a small two hour party of 15 vendors to a weekend long semi-annual handmade event with 60+ amazing crafters. Thousands gather to buy handmade and vintage wares at each Bijou event, and if you plan on attending Bijou's holiday markets, then you'll want to leave a few hours of your day open to have enough time to soak up all the amazing products that the Bijou Markets' vendors have to offer.
The Bijou Market has found a permanent home in Provo at Historic Southworth Hall, but due to popular demand a market day will also be set up for just one day, on November 26th in Taylorsville at Aspen Landing!
One of the cute founders, Emily of Bijou Market also had this to say about shopping their vendors during the holidays...
Our Holiday markets are especially exciting because shoppers have the opportunity to find one of a kind gifts for everyone on their shopping lists. Many items you'll find at Bijou Market are upcycled - or made from vintage or existing supplies, so you can feel good about consuming less this holiday. Also, vendors hail from Utah, Idaho, Arizona, Nevada and California and supporting the local arts and craft community is not only great for the local economy, but good for the soul too!
You can become a member of Bijou's newly launched Facebook Group, check out their blog or follow along on Twitter to stay updated on all of the latest about Bijou Market handmade events! Also, you can RSVP for the events on Facebook to show your support!
I just love everything that this Market, it's founders and vendors stand for and have to offer. I'm thrilled to share them with you, and I will definitely be heading out these next few weekends to do a bit of Christmas shopping for those unique one-of-a-kind gifts for the people on my list.
See You There!
