About the Craft Heroes:
The St. Pete Craft Heroes (saving the 'burg from stale boring crafts) are Shannon Schafer (aka BoogieBead) and Coralette Damme (aka CraftyHag). These partners in craft teamed up to form the Craft Heroes when they saw a need for more accessible sales opportunities in the local art/craft community. As mentors and administrators on their local Etsy street team (Etsy is an online marketplace for all things hand made, and the local team of crafters is FEST:FLorida Etsy Street Team) they have helped numerous creative folks take the plunge and publicly share their passion.

The Craft Heroes pay particular attention to quality and creativity of the vendors at their events, making sure that guests find unique styles and unusual offerings at all of their events.

The Craft Heroes are community conscious and plan their events to aid and promote local charities and non-profit organizations. A portion of vendor registration fees from each event are donated to a worthy cause.

The Craft Heroes encourage everyone to buy HANDMADE FOR THE HOLIDAYS! Support local artisans and your local economy, reduce your global footprint all by buying from community crafters. A wide assortment of products will be available, something for every taste and budget!
