Lawrence Craft Collective Inaugural Show

Start: November 24, 2013 11:00 am
Cost: 0

Lawrence Craft Collective, Lawrence’s newest juried craft show, will be hosting its inaugural show on Sunday November 24th from 11am-5pm at Liberty Hall, 644 Massachusetts St Lawrence KS.

Shop from over two-dozen local vendors selling exclusively handmade items. Everything from hand cut gemstone jewelry, painstakingly pieced quilts, meticulously drawn illustrations and carefully painted works of original art just to name a few of the items from our local vendors. Craft Collective is sure to have some thing for everyone’s interest and price range.

Additionally, we think it’s important to give back to the community that supports us, so at each show we will have a bake sale, supplied by our vendors, with the proceeds donated to a local charity. This time around we have chosen the Lawrence Humane Society.

As an incentive to hit the show early we are offering a limited number of swag bags filled with samples and coupons to the first 20 people through the door on Sunday morning.

More information, such as a complete list of vendors and vendor profiles, can be found at our website,, or on our Facebook page,
