If you’re looking to redecorate your house or find some new table decor, big-box department stores can get stale, sometimes. There’s a chance that no matter how many you visit, it tends to be a very similar selection with little nuance. If you’re looking for specialty, handcrafted items from furniture to wardrobe accessories, consider visiting The Makers Market in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
Hailed as the largest craft mall in West Alabama, The Makers Market opened in late 2012, thanks to owner Beth Mills. Feeling that the area was lacking craft shopping options, Mills brought together her passion for community and artistry and opened the large mall. Anchored in a historic building in downtown Tuscaloosa, The Makers Market showcases items from over 100 artists and crafters.
What makes The Makers Market so great is its countless variety of not only artists, but styles of crafts available. Each day, shoppers can find furniture, paintings, rugs, pottery, handmade soaps, folk art, children’s clothing, home decor, and more. Crimson Tide fans or alumni in town for a football or basketball game can visit the mall and find a selection of one-of-a-kind University of Alabama collectibles. For hungry patrons, the mall even has a bakery inside.
Mills is always looking to add to the current collection of sellers as she rents out booths for each vendor.
