re:Craft and Relic is a two-day, indoor, ticketed, Midwest market held three times a year at the Milwaukee County Sports Complex in Franklin, WI. ​This curated market is the largest of its kind in the region, featuring artists, designers, and curators selling only the best in vintage, handmade, and pop up boutiques.

New in 2023, re:Craft & Relic is adding new, more intimate market events like the Handmade Holiday, Mini Market at the Gage. And new owner, Sue Smith, continues to expand her event management expertise. This year, Sue helped LIT MKE owner, Mike Bate, revive Mount Mary's Starving Artist Show (now Make Art MKE).

I’m passionate about seeing small businesses thrive and giving them a platform to help them do so. 
 

The dream of many artists and shop owners is to have a brick-and-mortar location or to simply be able to live off the hard work that goes into the pieces they curate and create. Shopping events like re:Craft and Relic get to play a part in making that dream come true. 

 

I’m excited to connect these businesses to the community around them and my goal is to create an atmosphere in which the community is excited to keep coming back to see what new treasures these creatives have to offer.

Sue Smith, Owner
