All products are designed, made and displayed by the individual crafters and available at affordable prices.   All artists will be present and available to customize and personalize their works.   This show provides both crafts and art, from the latest in shabby chic to handmade furniture and handpainted clothing.   Traveling from 14 states and 155 Michigan cities, they will be selling their own “one-of-a-kind” handcrafted items, and appeal to the shoppers who line up before the doors open to rush to their favorite booth or discover their newest favorite artist or craft-person.  This year 34 new crafters will be joining the show for the first time.

Last year, this one-day holiday extravaganza attracted over 10,000 customers and brought crafters from throughout the Midwest including Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin as well as Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, New York and Pennsylvania.    In a recent Facebook contest, Nicole Sedlock, a Saline Craft Show follower, said “Over the years, I have tried to continue the tradition from my childhood of looking forward to craft shows. I have attended this show for the last three years with my mom. And once we discovered the Saline show (in November) we both were so excited and by the time we left, we were already looking forward to the Spring show.”
