Alliday ALLSTAR: Funky Finds!

An Alliday Allstar is an organization or business that has gone above and beyond to aid in making our event a success!  Without them, we would not be able to do what we do!  In addition to artist spotlights, we also showcase our amazing Allstars here!  Read our first spotlight with Unanimous Craft here!

Funky Finds has made easy one of the most difficult tasks for artists and crafters - finding the right shows to apply to.  With their incredibly thorough WORLDWIDE calendar of awesome shows, consider every one of your weekends to now be filled.  Funkily filled, that is.  Not only does Funky Finds produce their own kickin' shows, but they also help promote other shows, provide a virtual marketplace for artists, and SO much more!  Funky Finds gives artists, crafters and shoppers endless possibilities to fulfill their incessant handmade needs.
