Fresh off a wonderful time at the July 2013 Williams-Sonoma Artisans' Market hosted yesterday by the Raleigh store in Crabtree Valley Mall, we want to extend our warmest thanks to the company and the local team for this opportunity. Take note: Williams-Sonoma is indeed a big retailer which affirmatively supports their local communities in thoughtful ways. The company allows local artisans participating in the Market to sell goods directly to customers during the Market - providing everything from professional promotional support before and during the Market to beautifully appointed tables for displaying artisanal wares, and everything in between right down to the quality Williams-Sonoma shopping bags for customer purchases. Extra special thanks to the Raleigh team for their exceptionally warm welcome, and all of their help during our first Market. Mark your calendars: the next Crabtree Williams-Sonoma Artisans' Market is slated for Saturday, August 24th.
