Get Your Shop On – Mod Shop is Back!
Mod Shop: Indie Crafters Market returns to downtown Modesto on Nov. 28. The Saturday following the Thanksgiving holiday marks Small Business Saturday. As a part of this movement, local Mod Shop organizers encourage you to join them downtown between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. to shop at independent retailers, eat at a local restaurant, listen to some local music, and generally just have a great time.
Mod Shop, now in its 3rd year, is a rebirth of the popular Hand Born Modern Craft Bazaar. Vendors sell an assortment of one-of-a-kind items from clothing to accessories and artwork from area artists. At this annual event, shoppers can find anything from handmade furniture, cosmetics, art, clothing, knitted items, and more. In addition to supporting local business, the goal of Mod Shop is to create a hip, inclusive, and entertaining atmosphere and attract a variety of people to come together for the evening – young and old, families and friends.
Downtown should come alive every night; however, on this night, organizers hope more people than ever will spend the evening perusing the offerings of our vendors, while supporting local shops, restaurants, and bars. Also, live music will be provided by several local musicians busking the streets.
Returning this year will be Mini Mod Shop, located inside the Mistlin Gallery, which has opened the event to young crafters. New this year is the addition of the patio at Galletto as a host location. Other host locations include Preservation Coffee and Tea, Concetta, Mira’s Bridal, Deva Café, Mod Spot, and Peer Recovery Art Project. A raffle for items provided by participating vendors will be held inside the Modesto Chamber Office. Proceeds from this years raffle will support Camp Jack Hazard.
