Welcome to the new Handmade Detroit site!

It’s been a few years since we did a design update (5, actually, whoa.), and we are really excited for this one!  We have kept all the important features you’ve come to see on our site, but now with an updated, image-dominant design. We love it!

Stay tuned to this and the DUCF site for all our DUCF announcements (applications are going live on August 1st)!  You can sign up for our email list to be the first to know what’s going on here.

Whether you’ve been with us since our beginnings in 2006, or just joining us, we are glad to have you!

DUCF update!

The 8th annual Detroit Urban Craft Fair is over, but we are still so excited about what many shoppers and crafters said was their favorite DUCF yet! This year we had over 4,700 shoppers, our highest attendance yet, and the artistry, creativity and imaginations of our 100+ vendors was so inspiring. Thank you to both our vendors for all of your hard work, and to everyone who came to shop and support them!

We also would like to thank The Masonic Temple and their staff for all of their help and for giving DUCF such a beautiful space to be set in. Some more thanks go out to El Guapo, who kept both sellers and shoppers’ tummies full of taco awesomeness, DJ Dave Lawson who provided a wonderful soundtrack all weekend, and Anne of Indie Lovely who captured the show and each of our vendors so well - check out more pictures in her Flickr set here.
