In 2015, I opened The Artists Market of Mackinac Island, which is truly an incredible place.
When I was buying goodies for Little Luxuries, I kept on seeing more handcrafted and unique goods that I knew needed a special place. I wanted a place where artists from all over the country would be showcased right here on Mackinac Island. Which is why in 2015, I opened The Artists Market on Mackinac Island, which is truly an incredibly special place.
The Artists Market of Mackinac Island is home to over 100 artists each season and every season we bring in more! Some artists have retired from their careers and end up finding a creative hobby. Others have put their creative minds to use, supporting themselves through college with this hobby. One of our youngest entrepreneurs is the artists behind Ava’s Candles. Ava is just in middle school, but her and her mom create these beautiful candles with Petoskey stones shaped around the wick. Our artists are from all over the United States, with a lot coming from right here in Michigan!
One of my favorite parts of The Artists Market of Mackinac Island is introducing YOU to small businesses from the heart of the United States. Each time you shop at The Artists Market, you are truly supporting a small, local shop that helps to support over 100 other small artisans, families and students.
If you’re looking for a truly unique gift that you won’t be able to find elsewhere, go visit The Artists Market of Mackinac. This little shop has a special place in my heart and brings a smile to my face every time I see an order go through because I know we’re helping other family’s stay in business.
