Museum’s Original Artisans Market scheduled for Dec. 3

Victoria College’s Museum of the Coastal Bend will host The Original Artisans Market on Dec. 3.

Victoria College’s Museum of the Coastal Bend will host The Original Artisans Market from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 3.

The event is free and open to the public.

“Now in our 13th year, the museum’s market is unique in that vendors are curated,” said Sue Prudhomme, VC’s executive director of cultural affairs. “At many markets, any vendor who can pay a booth fee is allowed. At this market, we’ve selected regional artisans and makers with quality and diversity as our top priorities.”

Victoria College has implemented CDC-recommended precautions for the health and safety of attendees.

“The shopping area has almost doubled in size to accommodate social distancing by vendors and shoppers,” Prudhomme said. “Temperature checks will be required for entry, and facial coverings and occupancy limits will be strictly enforced.”

Following are the vendors scheduled to participate in the event:

  • Country Q’s: Candles, air fresheners, sugar scrubs, and bath bombs
  • Crossroads Homemade Goodies: Jams, jellies, preserves
  • Das Buehler Haus: Fabric bags for wine and more
  • G. Van Dusen Jr: Fine pens and wooden vases
