Craftland 2009

The Scrap Exchange, an 18 year old creative reuse center, and the North Carolina Triangle Etsy Street Team join together this holiday season to offer “Craftland: Handmade Goods by Local Artists” in the Green Gallery located in the reuse center of The Scrap Exchange. Craftland exists to provide customers and the local community access to sustainable gifts made from repurposed materials. The marketplace is open from October 16th-January 2nd. Items include stuffed animals made from tee-shirts, girl's skirts made from men's work shirts, metal sculptures made from typewriter and sewing machine parts, melted and fused glass items and much more! Many Etsy artists are featured including: ReVamped Creations, Nice Shirt Kid, Lucky Girl Trading, MegRNC, Fandragon, FlowerSoup, Janine Maves, and Donnie Wrights.

A huge thanks goes to Megan (MegRNC), Carolyn (Blue Cuddly), Jill (Orange Cat Art) and Tonya (ReVamped Creations) for all of their hard work in helping organize the 6th Annual Craftland.


  1. I visited the craftsland show last time but there were just a handful of the artists selling their wares. But the wares were a great examples of art and craft. enjoyed it very much.
