Craftland . . . Year Round!

Have you heard the awesome news? Craftland will be opening as a full time, permanent store! If you don't know what Craftland is, then you've been missing out on some awesome handmade, glittery fun that pops up every December in downcity Providence, only to go away after Christmas. Well, thanks to all the shoppers who enthusiastically buy handmade, and the team of Craftland artists who make awesome stuff, it's now going to be open all year long. Its permanent residence will be on the corner of Westmister and Union Streets. For fellow Rhode Islanders, that's where Lupo's used to be. (I've lived here 10 years, that means I can officially act like a proper Rhode Islander and start giving directions based on landmarks that no longer exist.)

Check out Craftland's site for the official news and stay tuned for more posts on when they open and when they throw an official opening party!

    hahaha - so true. I never understood why Rhode Islanders did that.

    also never understood why they think a 35 minute drive is a far distance (people up in N Smithfield have to pack an overnight bag to go to Newport... its so far!). :)
