Halcyon Welcomes Local Artisan Market To Its Robust Retail Line-Up

Halcyon, the premier mixed-use destination in Forsyth County, will soon be home to MAKE[R], an artisan market offering handmade goods and maker-led workshops. On Saturday, March 16 and Sunday, March 17, the gift shop and boutique will host a grand opening celebration with giveaways and experiences for the community.

“We’ve been involved with Halcyon for many years through the Spring and Holiday Artists Markets,” said Kristen Cardinal, founder of MAKE[R]. “Halcyon’s welcoming community and vibrant energy made it a natural fit for our second storefront. We look forward to connecting with our neighbors even further as we celebrate our grand opening soon.”

Throughout the year, MAKE[R] will host various maker-led classes and workshops in addition to its handmade retail offerings. The boutique gift shop features a wide range of handmade products from clothing to gifts from more than 24 local artisans. The boutique will be open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m and Sunday from noon to 7 p.m.

Grand opening celebrations for MAKE[R] will kick off on Saturday, March 16. The first 20 customers will receive a swag bag from the shop’s local artisans. From 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Your Prints of Love will host a pop-up offering its signature fingerprint and pet paw print casts-turned-keepsakes. Southern Sparkle Fairy Hair will be at MAKE[R] from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. with its signature hair tinsel, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. On Sunday, March 17 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., Ace and Atlas will host a pop-up selling handmade embroidered sweaters. Additional experiences throughout the weekend include an all-day build-your-own bracelet bar, free kids make-and-take Shamrock sun catchers workshop and nitro green tea lemonade from Phoenix Roasters.

“We’re proud that more than 60% of the retailers and restaurants at Halcyon are minority or women-owned businesses,” said Phil Mays, Principal at RocaPoint Partners. “With Kristen at the helm, MAKE[R] is an excellent addition to our robust line-up of retailers. You can find whatever you’re looking for at Halcyon, from handcrafted goods, delicious meals and experiences unlike anywhere else.”

MAKE[R] joins several locally owned concepts newly opened at Halcyon, including children’s boutique Piggy Jo’s, virtual golf experience and restaurant X-Golf and luxury furniture store Eichholtz by O.Dig.We Interiors. Learn more about MAKE[R] via https://themaker.community/ or @makerhalcyon. For additional information about Halcyon, visit www.visithalcyon.com or follow @VisitHalcyon on Instagram and Facebook.
