If you love handmade goods and you happen to be in Martha’s Vineyard, your first stop should be the Vineyard Artisan Festival in West Tisbury!

Open every Wednesday and Sunday throughout the summer, the festival is a great place to pick up handcrafted jewelry, ceramics, and luxurious body and bath care items. All of the creations are crafted by the island’s residents, so every treasure you bring home is sure to have some of the rustic charm the Vineyard is known for.

Come celebrate 16 years of beautiful craftsmanship at the Vineyard Artisan Festival, and purchase a unique souvenir from your summer vacation.  For more information visit the festival website at http://www.vineyardartisans.com/, and see the schedule below.
