Schlow Library Hosts Underground Artisan Marketplace

The Underground Artisans Marketplace (UAM) held its alternative arts and crafts show on Saturday afternoon at the Schlow Centre County Library. Previously held at Chronic Town, the Artisans moved to Schlow for the first time to increase exposure to the community.

When held at its previous venue, the show appealed mostly to a younger crowd. That wasn’t the case Saturday afternoon, however.  Numerous families from the Centre County area stopped by to check out the old-fashioned town craft show.

UAM’s goal is to connect the buyer with the artist and to promote the ideas of “buying local” and “going green.”

There were 18 artists from the Centre Region in all selling anything and everything homemade.

Among some of the featured items were handmade clothing, jewelry and home décor, original artwork, pottery, upcycled and repurposed vintage clothing, vinyl records, and much more. Most of the items at the market were reasonably priced–generally between $5 and $50.

The Vintage vinyl records were on sale from The Music Underground. Their staffers were the DJs of the event.

Players on the State College Roller Derby team were also there to sell items and provide information about the team.
