You're invited to the Preview Gala, a party before Crafty Mart's Mom & Pop Shoppe.  The Preview Gala is happening Friday night, April 24th from 5-8pm on the third floor of Summit Artspace (140 E. Market St.)  This party is an opportunity for artisans and the public to meet and socialize in a relaxed atmosphere--perhaps a difficult challenge during one of our handmade markets!  We encourage everyone to socialize and get to know one another as we celebrate our community filled with creative entrepreneurs.



The Preview Gala will include appetizers from Nuevo Modern Mexican, Stray Dog, and Three Sisters MomoThirsty Dog will be pouring beer and Norka will provide your favorite soft drinks. Bring your cameras--because we'll also have a fun retro photo backdrop available at the party. 



The Preview Gala will function as a fundraiser for Crafty Mart Inc., now operating as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  The party will include a chinese auction of specially-donated Mom & Pop Shoppe vendors' goods.  The auction winners will be announced at 7:30pm during the party.
