Welcome

Evanston… here we come!

Join us on October 2 for an END OF SUMMER EXTRAVAGANZA!

Handmade Happy Hours is partnering with Evanston Made to bring more makers & artists to the Maker’s Market on October 2. We’re hosting our events together, one right next to the other, on the 5th floor off the parking garage, and we hope to take over not only the entire floor, but another floor as well!

We are working on organizing Networking Events & Outdoor Markets for our Spring & Summer 2021 Season.

Artists: Sign up to stay in the know.


About Us

Handmade Happy Hours was founded in May 2019 as a solution for Chicago Makers & Artists to participate in affordable, well-organized, and regularly scheduled markets.

Since May 2019, we have grown from a group of 6 artists, to a community of over 230 local artists & makers.

Pre-pandemic, HHH hosted monthly curated pop-up markets, aimed at providing artists with an affordable space to sell their work.


Our Events

Carefully curated by our founder, we provide a unique selection of handmade goods in a fun, welcoming atmosphere.

We’ve been complimented by vendors, venues, and customers on our positive and supportive environment.

When you attend an HHH event, you can expect to see a wide variety of handmade goods. HHH curates and selects vendors for each event to provide a selection of handmade wares and allow each vendor to shine in their own light.

You can expect to see both new & experienced artists, all from within the Chicagoland community.

We strive to offer both new & experienced artists with a comfortable, affordable, and welcoming environment to sell their work and network with other makers in Chicago.

Our motto is “Community over Competition,” and we live that by fostering a collaborative environment amongst venues, artists, and customers alike.

See what our Vendors say about us!

“Great organizing, attitude and overall vibe. These shows always feel collaborative and supportive as well as fun!”

Shelly of Gingershells Boutique

Great pre-show promotions, and pre show instructions, a well organized floor plan. Everything was well planned and I felt very informed. Quick response time to questions.

Amanda of Forever Comely

One of the things I like best about Handmade Happy Hour markets is the community of makers & artisans… every singly vendor is kind, helpful, knowledgeable, and so friendly.
