A Gallery of Local Artisans


Tacoma is for lovers.

It’s a sentiment to our community and a seasonal market of local makers and artisans. Last weekend they filed in between the colorful bookshelves of Kings Books and Destiny City Comics, staging display tables of eclectic jewelry and accessories, natural soaps, hand drawn stationary and print, and so much more. Inquisitive shoppers and art lovers of all mediums toured the small business exhibit in support of the homemade collections. Check out Tacoma is for Lovers’ on Facebook and follow our event calendar to find out about other upcoming craft fairs like this one.

In light of December gift hunts and in honor of small business owners in our city, we bring you that “Tacoma is for Lovers” line-up of talent. Keep your holiday shopping local this season with the gift that keeps on giving. Browse our online gallery from the event and click below to contact these creatives with your holiday orders and any gift giving in 2017. #shoplocal
