Celebrate Small Business Saturday and shop local handmade goods at Bower Center for the Arts!

With over twenty-five exhibitors from around the region, you are sure to find the perfect holiday gifts!  Free gift wrapping will be available.

This event will also include concessions, chances to win door prizes, free face painting, caricatures with Kyle Edgell, selfies with Santa & Mrs. Clause and art activity stations for families!

Admission is $2/adult at the door or a donation of art supplies for the Bower Center's Little Free Art Gallery! Children 12 and under are free.

Donations from this event help support Bower Center's Free Little Art Gallery. Molded on Little Free Libraries, the Free Little Art Gallery (FLAG) makes art accessible to all in our community.  FLAG encourages visitors to take pint-sized artworks, art instruction and creative writing books, and youth art supplies home or to leave behind creations of their own to share with others. 

Vendor Spotlight!

Each week we'll be spotlighting some of the wonderful artisan vendors you'll see at The Market!

GlitzNGlaze Studio

GlitzNGlaze Studio is a small batch pottery studio with many unique one of a kind items!  The brand is all about vivid color complements and contrasts, lots of texture, and a “bit of glitz.” Intended to be fun and intricately detailed, you’ll find functional ware, sculptural decor, and ceramic jewelry as some of the unique items they offer! 

Keitha's Artful Garden

Keitha's Artful Garden is a local maker of handcrafted soaps, skin care, lip balms, lotions, and more! Everything is handmade in small batches by Keitha herself, chock full of love and care! If you've ever had a chance to catch her at the Bedford VA Farmers Market, you already have an idea of the impeccable quality of her products!
