Sometimes the most interesting stories come in the smallest of packages. This summer, Seattle Handmade and Stunningly Strange Gallery in Edmonds, WA host a creative challenge of diminutive proportions!
Participating local artists from all over the Puget Sound were challenged to create a TINY work of art, no larger than 6” with an accompanying story so SMALL, it can be told in less than 200 words.
Join us as we reveal their work in an open-to-the-public artists reception at the fabulous Stunningly Strange Gallery during the Edmonds Art Walk, Thursday August 21, 2014 5pm – 8pm.
All artwork will continue to be available for purchase through September 17th at the gallery.

|We asked our followers & team members what Supporting Handmade meant to them and these are our Top 10 from their suggestions.

- This is vital because knowing your shopper will help determine if a show is right for you.
- How do you know if you do? That’s easy. You should plan to be able to completely replenish your table at least once. In other words, if you sell out of everything, you have enough to make your table look pretty well stocked. i.e. avoid the ‘picked over’ look.
- How big the show is.
- How many hours/days in the show.
- Ask the organizer what the expected attendance is.
