About Our Show (formerly Crafters’ Clearance)

–Who We Are–

We are a juried fine art & handcraft show, one of only two* February shows in Michigan.  We give customers a chance to get out in the melting snow and buy unique, quality merchandise directly from talented regional makers– a much-anticipated taste of spring and summer art fairs to come!

2018 marks our 18th year, and we’re celebrating our success with a fresh name that better communicates who we are:  a full-service marketplace for the artisanal and handmade.  We will always be a place for artists to offer discounts on holiday or past-season merchandise, but we’re also excited to be the first place they’ll be introducing their newest and best work!

Our incredible variety includes sumptuous fine art, breathtaking photography, custom pet supplies, beautiful apparel and accessories, woodcrafts and furniture, luscious soaps and candles, gorgeous jewelry and home decor, food mixes to brighten dull winter meals, an abundance of giftware, pottery, garden accents, adorable baby items, and much, much more!

The show is hosted by the Henry Ford II Instrumental Music Boosters, with proceeds from the show benefitting the instrumental music programs at Henry Ford II High School.  We and our students thank you for your support!


–Who Are You?–

Are you a fine artist, a maker of beautiful things, a beekeeper or cottage baker?  We’d love to meet you!

Do you purchase locally-produced items when possible?

Do your home and your personal style reflect who you are and what you love, rather than whatever was on sale at Stuff-Mart?

Are you ready for the first taste of this summer’s art fairs?

Would you love to find some great deals on handcrafted items?

Are you a discriminating consumer who values uniqueness and quality over flashy brand names?

Are you hungry for fudge?  Or soup?  Or freshly-baked artisan breads?

Do you take pride in Michigan?

Could you use a long candlelit soak in a relaxing herbal bath?

Are you an artsy type who loves inspiration?

Do you love any particular adults, children, babies, cats, or dogs?

Would you like an excuse to spend time with friends who say “we should get together sometime”?

Do the words “Gourmet Butterfinger Chocolate-Covered Apple” mean anything to you?

If you could buy a necklace from the very same lady who mined the stones in that necklace, would you?

Are you hoping to find a one-of-a-kind or personalized gift for someone special?


We could go on, but we’re sure you get our point:  
You don’t want to miss this show.


*The other February show is Garage Sale Art Fair, in Kalamazoo, later in the month.
