Happy Holidays Virtual Artisan Market

We'll miss seeing you in person this year as you browse our creations, however we decided during these uncertain times, in an effort to protect everyone's health, to go virtual as many other markets have done. Read our artisan bios and check out our artisan spaces pages . Each of us is responsible for our own sales and deliveries. You can contact us through the contact form on this site or at our links provided on each artisan spaces page. 817 Arts Alliance has provided in person holiday shopping experiences annually in downtown Arlington since 2011 along with other occasional artisan made events in the DFW area such as a couple of Fall Gallery Night events at BRIT in Fort Worth. Please support local artisans through this online event this year and help keep the creativity flowing while snagging unique gifts for the people on your shopping list.

Welcome to our Market

Watch the video below for a quick overview of this year's market and our participating artisans.
Artisan bios are on the main page and a link to each participating artisan's space is on the Happy Holidays Virtual Market Artisans tab. A comment form is located on most pages to ask the artisans questions.

By shopping with us, not only are you purchasing a one-of-a-kind piece of art or other handmade creation directly from a local artisan, you are supporting a dream and profits go right back into the community.

The majority of the Happy Holidays Virtual Artisan Market's artisans recently participated in another online market in which they were part of roundtable discussions, demonstrations and tours. Check out the recordings of those sessions on the 817ArtsAlliance facebook feed. There were 13 different sessions varying between about 15 minutes and 1 hour in length on a variety of topics.
