The Little Craft Show is bringing its locally minded craft show to Little Rock for its first-ever central Arkansas show. Perfectly timed with the holidays, the northwest Arkansas-based indie craft show will take over Lost Forty's taproom on Saturday, Dec. 8, from noon to 6 p.m.  

The event is free to attend, and in addition to shopping from more than 25 regional artisans and makers, attendees can enjoy craft beer, giveaway prizes, a photo booth and specialty hot cocoa and house-made marshmallows from Loblolly Creamery.

"The Little Craft Show has grown to be one of the most cherished opportunities for high-quality artisans across the region to represent their work," founder Amber Perrodin says.

Here's a preview of just a few of the vendors who will be at The Little Craft Show: 

  • Bella Vita Jewelry, featuring hand-cast and hand-stamped jewelry
  • Elly Bates Art, a Little-Rock based artist who creates abstract landscape paintings and custom painted portraits
  • Ro’Ark, featuring leather bags, wallets, and watch bands made in Romance, Arkansas
  • Markham & Fitz, featuring gift boxes and chocolate bars from bean-to-bar artisan chocolatiers from northwest Arkansas
  • Amber E. Lea Designs, a sustainable, contemporary ceramic jewelry maker

The Little Craft Show was founded in 2011 by Amber Perrodin and Natalie Freeman as a way for them to sell their handmade products with their crafty friends. The Little Craft Show has grown from 600 shoppers in 2011 to more than 8,000 shoppers in 2016. Now, the craft show has three events in northwest Arkansas and one in Little Rock.
