Three Knoxville makers share their passions and reasons for shopping local.
Knoxville Weekend nails it again, creating this stunning video on behalf of The Maker City.
'Tis the season, y'all! We're all starting to think gifts and shopping local is so important for our community, economy, artists, and their families. Take a peek to learn a bit more about a few of Knoxville's makers and what makes shopping local so special! Buy Local - DO IT.
Being The Maker City, Knoxville has an abundance of talented craftspeople, makers, designers, and artists of all kinds creating one-of-a-kind pieces. We encourage you to shop local and give handmade items year round. Each piece comes with a story about who made it and how it was made. It also feels good to support Knoxville and its small-scale manufacturers.
