Fine Craft Collective shop pops up again downtown for the holidays (photo album)

Assemblage Jewelry by Leanne StremchaLeanne Stremcha (Assemblage Jewelry) alerted me last week to Saturday’s opening of the Fine Craft Collective shop downtown in the old Hoffman’s Photography location.

Robbie and I paid a visit around noon and went back at 4 for the wine and cheese grand opening.  Robbie bought stuff. I took photos.

Here are some details from Leanne:

Fine Craft Collective 2013The Fine Craft Collective, Northfield’s artisan pop-up shop, has once again opened it’s doors for the holidays. Our grand opening is Saturday, November 24th! Stop in to enjoy refreshments and see all the beautiful pieces by our talented local artists. This year the Fine Craft collective will be open seven days a week at 605 Division Street. More than just the personal touch of an object made by hand, this co-operative gallery gives a personal connection between artisans and shoppers.

A member of the show is there every day so that they can dialogue about the work – gain ideas and offer insight.  Shoppers can see a variety of goods for special gifts and everyday life, and know that their purchase will directly support their community. The more research that is done about buying local, the more we can all see how local purchases, especially of goods that are also locally produced, help keep our towns and neighborhoods thriving.
