It's that time of year!

Well it’s that time of the year where small artisan markets pop up everywhere for the holiday season and nothing is better than supporting your local artists AND getting something unique for the special people in your life! Akinz is participating in three; count them THREE markets within the next month and a half! We are going to be busy bringing you the goods you love from Akinz!

What: BeLocal's PLaid Friday
When: November 23 10am-2pm
Where: The Opera Galleria
123 North College Ave
Fort Collins, CO 80524

in the midst of deal-hungry consumers?? Well, relax and come join us at the second annual Plaid Friday Marketplace at the Opera Galleria (Friday Nov. 23) to start your holiday shopping in the fun, laid back, and quirky atmosphere of local independent Fort Collins shops.

What: Greeley’s 4th Annual Indie Arts Market
When: December 1st, 9am-4pm
Where: Armory Building
614 8th Ave,
Greeley, Co 80631

This market has outgrown its space at the Atlas Theater and has now moved to the historic armory building downtown. This juried show has 35+ artists. We are so happy to be part of this year’s market! Come see us!

WHAT: Fuse Denver
WHEN: December 9th, 11am-6pm
WHERE: EXDO Event Center
1399 35th Street
Denver, CO 80205

They aim to create a feel good shopping experience, while showcasing the best of Denver’s art, design and fashion. Simply put, they are the love child of a craft fair and modern art show (definitely not your gram-mama’s craft fair).

We want to challenge our local community and invite them to trade one day at the mall this Holiday season and come see what the best of Denver has to offer. We know all kinds of great stuff is made here, we want to make sure our community does too. Take that second pause this Holiday season and think about where something is coming from, how it’s made and how it contributes or doesn’t contribute to our local economy. Join us Dec 9 from 11-6 pm at the Exdo Event Center for inaugural FUSEdenver Holiday Market.
