In 2004 I started a little event called The Rock & Shop Market to bring attention to local designers like myself and highlight the talented musicians in the area. At the time there wasn’t anything like it in the Triangle. Now, the area is ripe for designers selling their wares, similar events have popped up to much success and The Rock & Shop is as flourishing as ever. I’m proud to be hosting the eighth! one this Saturday the 13th and I hope to see you there. It will be indoors at the Tir Na Nog (across from Moore Square) in downtown Raleigh from 1-5pm. Admission is $3.
The event promises to be a great one with live music by local bands The Whistlestop & The Tender Fruit plus a hand-picked selection of over 30 emerging North Carolina designers selling their goods. You can check out all the designers as well as hear preview mp3’s of the bands that are playing at the website.
I hope you’ll come out to grab a beer, shop local, and support fellow North Carolinians who are making a living by doing what they love.
