It’s Craftacular Time!


That’s right folks, THIS SUNDAY is the Tenth Annual Summer Craftacular!!

The main ballroom of the Masonic Center will be filled to the brim with artists and crafters, while the classroom will be host to our Vintage Flea and Finds market, so make sure you check out both rooms.

Doors open at 10, and don’t forget, if you are one of the first 50 lucky shoppers you will get one of our fun goodie bags!

The show is all indoors, so come rain or shine, join us Sunday for this FREE, fun, family friendly event, and show your support for ten years of Craftaculars!

Summer… please…….


Hello dear followers of this very negelected blog! Wowzers this winter has been a rough one. Besides the snow, frigid weather, four kids at three different school, health issues and settling into our new house, well I haven’t had time or energy for much.

BUT I can see a little sparkly glimpse of light in the incoming days and months promising spring, and maybe, if we’re REALLY lucky, even summer.

This summer is extra special. We will be celebrating our Tenth Summer Crafacular! I really truly can’t believe it’s been that long.

We’ve come a long way and I still have some many ideas to explore. I’m excited to hopefully have some of our longtime favorite vendors back, and we’re always looking for new faces! We do have our fancy schmancy Craftacular website up with the application info so head on over there to apply and for more FAQs on the show.


It’s beginning to look a lot like… Valentine’s Day?


That’s right folks! It’s time to gear up for the Valentine Craftacular! We are excited to announce that this event, as well as our Summer Craftacular (Sunday, July 20th) and Holiday Craftacular (Saturday, November 29th) will be held downtown Madison at the Masonic Center (301 Wisconsin Ave.).

Between moving (ugh) two birthday parties (yay!) and a million things inbetween, I really honestly have been getting ready for one of my favorite days of the year…. The Holiday Craftacular!!! The show is a bit earlier this year than in past years, so MARK YOUR CALENDAR!!!!
