First Friday: Artisan Stroll!
If you love arts and crafts, you won’t want to miss Main Street Greenville’s First Friday event for October, the Artisan Stroll! The event features over 40 different vendors, each offering art, artisan crafts, or handmade items! The event will be held from 6-9 pm downtown Greenville on Friday, October 3rd. Vendors will be set-up on the sidewalks in front of downtown businesses to showcase their items. The list of items offered include paintings, ceramics, jewelry, drawings, re-purposed home decor, photography, crocheted items, and more. In addition to the art on display, many demonstrations will take place throughout the evening. The list includes glass blowing, rock balancing, chainsaw sculpting, wooden spoon carving, chair caning, glass bead making, fiber art creation, and artistic gourd making. The event will also feature live music located at multiple locations. There will also be many things offered for children to enjoy. The list includes face-painting, Chalk-the-Block (a sidewalk chalk contest), a Renaissance & Medieval re-creation pavilion, a Kid’s Clinic provided by Lowes Home Improvement, and an art class provided by Paper Bird Studio at The A & B Coffee & Cake Co. Since June, the committee (consisting of Susan Fowble, Patti Jetter, Kim Murray, Mary Saintignon, Fran Brubaker, Debbie Niekamp, and Nancy Person) has volunteered to work with Amber Garrett, the Executive Director for Main Street Greenville to create the event. Signs and flyers will be posted the night of the event with the schedule and the locations of each vendor, but see the photos in this post for a preview of everything taking place! Main Street Greenville thanks Jafe Decorating, Inc., a local company since 1978 and a leading producer of specialty colored glass and our local AAA, a leisure travel organization – both who sponsored the First Friday Artisan Stroll.
