BikeCraft is this weekend and we’re getting very excited. As I always like to do before the big show, I thought I’d share the complete list of vendors. I count just over 50 of them! It’s going to be a fantastic event.
From bike bags and wooden front racks, printed matter, art, and fine leather bike accessories — if you love bikes (or need to shop for someone who does) you will find something wonderful and handmade and awesome.
Doors open at 11:00 am Saturday and Sunday. Check the vendor info below (taken directly from BikeCraft website) and start thinking about your plan of attack…
