Excitement Builds for Upcoming Artisan Market in Michigan City.

Head to Uptown Social (907 Franklin Street) in Michigan City on November 3 (from 5-9) and November 4 (from 11-4) for the first Dig the Dunes Artisan Market. Dig the Dunes is teaming up with Treasures by the Tide (a mother & daughter duo that creates one of a kind beach glass and driftwood statement pieces) for this event.

This market promises to be a celebration of creativity and craftsmanship, featuring a curated selection of handcrafted goods from local artisans and makers.. There will be food trucks both days and live music with Andre Detti on Friday night. Uptown Social will also have a full cash bar including some fun and creative cocktails, made special for the market.

Candles and soaps from Scented Seasons are just a couple of many handmade items from our artisans.

Angie Leffler, co-owner of Treasures by the Tide is very excited to be hosting her first artisan market. "It's a wonderful opportunity for everyone to come together, celebrate the creativity that surrounds us, and support the talented individuals in our community." Angie said, "You can expect to find a wide array of one-of-a-kind products, from exquisite handmade jewelry and unique textiles to original artwork and delectable culinary delights."

Eve, the founder of Dig the Dunes added, " Angie and I have created a wonderful vision. I think those that attend the market will be able to shop, have fun and enjoy a great evening or day out."

Unique to this event will be the addition of the Lost Treasures Photo Exhibit. Over the last few months Dig the Dunes has been accepting photos of lost toys on the beach. A select number will be exhibited and available for sale. 100% of the profits from this sale will go to the Hilltop House Be Like Keegan Toy Drive.

The Lost Treasures Photo Exhibit will donate 100% of proceeds to the Be Like Keegan Toy Drive.

Tickets purchased online will get entry into the market both days. (Cost is just $5). In addition, the first 50 tickets sold will get a free reusable cotton tote. Totes will also be available for purchase. You can grab your tickets here.
