Its that time of year that we all loved as kids. It's back to school time. For most of us and our children this is fun and exciting; a chance for us to express ourselves through school supplies. The right binder, the cool backpack, fresh sneakers and the perfect notebooks all getting us ready for another year of heady scholarly studies and personal growth... or at least spending time with our friends away from parents trudging through the school year.However, for many Las Vegas students this is not the case. Thousands of children don't get school supplies or not the basic minimum suggested by the CCSD, leaving our teachers with broken hearts and empty pocket books. In many cases teachers reach into their own pockets so that students can have the basic essentials to learn in their classrooms. With more than 100 Title 1 schools this is a problem that affects almost every school in the district.
Artisan Craft Festival is proudly trying to help by hosting our first Supply Our Students school supply drive. Everybody is encouraged to bring school supplies of any kind. Any donation of school supplies will get you a very special Artisan Craft Festival Gift. Cash donations will also be accepted. The cash and supplies will be donated through The Salvation Army. We are proud to be partnered in this venture with such an amazing, generous and compassionate charity. For more than 150 years The Salvation Army has been an organization on the front lines fighting against human despair. Please come out to Sam's Town August 21 and support our students, teachers and schools.

Coming from a very artistic family, Christine Esposito has been creating nearly her entire life in one form or another. She is inspired by colors and bits and pieces of the world around her, creating with both old and new, rusty and shiny, paper and metal. The journey to opening her very first "brick & mortar" studio has been a wild ride. In 2007 she began showing her recycled art made from a variety of things including aluminum cans during Las Vegas' monthly First Friday event...fast forward 1 1/2 years and her and her husband were the first to vend outside in the back of The Arts Factory.
With the growing popularity of Steampunk , Hiptazmic Studio became a "go to" destination for all things vintage & Steampunkery in nature. Clothing, jewelry, accessories & more, all made with vintage & new bits, baubles, found objects and the like.Busy with the studio, they don't do many outside events, but are now involved with the Artisan Craft Festival. Christine says, "We love the team that puts these events together! They are so supportive and helpful before, during, & after the event. You can see they want their vendors happy & successful. Plus each event has a wonderful variety of vendors, both seasoned, and new to the circuit."
