Block Party is an innovative new retail and community space for local artists and entrepreneurs. They are a collaborative handmade boutique that operates on a micro rental space agreement. All items are handmade from local and regional artists, with a small selection of vintage, and each artist has their own boutique space to merchandise and sell their work. As a co-op model, members work together at the store, providing an intimate and innovative experience for shoppers. Block Party provides a shared studio space for artists so you can see the products being made on site.  They also provide art and craft workshops where they teach jewelry making, painting, photography and much more.
