The holidays are coming up quickly, and with them comes the frenzy of trying to find the perfect gifts for loved ones. Luckily Frances, the modern boutique with vintage charm, hosts its annual Crafeteria on the first Friday in December to offer customers handmade crafts and wares by local artisans that make perfect holiday gifts.
The event brings together Valley neighbors, unique local businesses and 40 of Arizona’s top creators of handmade goods each year. In May, the boutique celebrated its 10-year anniversary, marking 10 years of fundraising, selling unique vintages pieces and holding events that focus on the community that helped build the boutique.
Crafeteria has been voted the Best Indie Craft Festival in Phoenix multiple times, and the boutique’s owner Georganne Bryant has been named one of the “Ten Women Who Move the Valley” in 2012 by Arizona Foothills Magazine.
Vendors for Crafeteria are chosen each year through an application process that closed this year on October 31. Citizen Home Decor always shows at the event, along with many other talented local artisans. Be sure not to miss out this year!
Crafeteria by Frances takes place on December 2, 2016 from 6 to 10 p.m. outside the boutique. Frances is located at 10 W. Camelback Rd., Phoenix, 85013. For more information on Frances or Crafeteria, call 602.279.5467 or visit francesvintage.com.
