These Iris pins are made by Laura Matura of Moxie Luxe.
The market features an array of vendors, who rotate through the space each weekend.
Jing's Calligraphy offers a selection of handmade offerings.
Tomba makes these hand-knitted, 100 percent wool chalk bags.
This wood-grain tea set is embossed earthenware, handmade by Dallas artist Lynn Armstrong of Both Hands Studio.
A little bit of Brooklyn and a hint of Paris are evident each weekend in the Design District. It?s the city?s newest showcase for local crafts: the Dallas Handmade Arts Market.
Influenced by flea markets in New York City and France, founder Jorge Herrera left a career in finance to forge the new endeavor, which started last month as an exclusive venue for locally made items.
On Saturdays and Sundays, artists, crafters and designers rotate through the loftlike space, selling unique wares from fiber to leather, photographs to pottery.
When we stopped in on a soggy day, live music helped to lift the spirits of vendors and attendees alike, as did the ample and eclectic selection of art and crafts.
In no time we fell for Sam?s Girls, the artisan Carol Isaac?s lovely showcase of repurposed sweaters and vests for children. We couldn?t resist a denim jacket with rosette-covered sweater arms ($55); we can only hope the toddler in our house feels the same way.
Another notable vendor, Tomba, makes one-of-a-kind chalk bags, purses and nesting bowls--all vibrant efforts.
Complimentary wine and beer, available during the last two hours of the market on both Saturday and Sunday, are even more reason to mark this market on your calendar.
