Nov 6 GnomeMade Artisan Market Preview Sale

Come to New Ulm and Shop with Your Gnomies! The 30th Anniversary of the GnomeMade Artisan Market will be held on Friday and Saturday, November 7 & 8 from 8 am to 5:30 pm and Sunday, November 9 from 11 am to 3 pm. Be the first to shop among select venues at our special Preview Sale held Thursday, November 6 from 6 pm to 8 pm (see* listings). The free event celebrates three decades of success by featuring the art and craft of local makers. Easily one of the most long-standing art and craft marketplaces in the region, the GnomeMade Artisan Market has earned a reputation as an annual showcase of high-quality items that bring patrons back year after year. 

 

Founded in 1984 by a group of young women who shared a passion for creating distinctive art and skilled handcraft, the makers of the collective continued to hold loosely organized arts and craft shows every year on the first weekend of the Minnesota DNR deer hunting season opener. In recent years, the popular market has since evolved to include several emerging and professional artists as well as fine craftsmen. 

 

With roots firmly planted in German heritage and folk craft, the GnomeMade Artisans strive to share artistic endeavors, moments of discovery, insightful advice and inspiration. Dedicated to enhancing lives with artful elements, individual artists volunteer their time to local organizations and schools by teaching arts and craft classes. Individual venues also host painting classes and weekend creative get-aways. 

 

Explore local culture and visit with our artisans in their private studios, homes and in historic New Ulm locations. Look for our gnome signs at the following venues: From the Heart Creations at 610 North Payne Street, Seasons at the Brewery at 1602 Hauenstein Drive, Stone Cottage Market at 1214 South Franklin Street, On A Whimsy Home Furnishings* at 61851 Zempel Drive, The Craft Castle in the Armory at 205 North Broadway, Little Brick Haus on State* at 400 North State Street, T&L Crafts* at 822 South Broadway, Lindbacken Artisans at Center & State Streets, No. 213 at 213 South Minnesota, The Fruit Cellar at 417 First South, Thusnelda’s Guild at 500 South Washington, The Needle House* at 1422 North Payne, Primitive Gatherings at 14 South Minnesota, Atta Girl* at 19999 Saddle Hills Drive, Rethunk Junk at 316 South Garden Street, Women’s Expo and Craft Fair at 318 South Payne Street (Saturday Only 9 to 2) and the United Methodist Women Bazaar and Lunch at Center & Broadway (Saturday Only 9 to 1).

 

New this year is the GnomeMade Young Artist and Theatre Workshop held at the State Street Theater on Saturday, November 8 from 9 am to Noon or 1 to 4 pm. The workshop includes a short performance of ‘The Gnome’s Home” and is open to kids grades K-6. Fee is $5 and class size is limited. Register by calling 507.276.6298 or email nugnomes@gmail.com

 

Over $500 in gifts will be given away in a special anniversary drawing. The grand prize includes an overnight stay at the Deutsche Strasse Bed and Breakfast, which was recently named ‘Best Historic B&B in Minnesota’, and a $25 gift certificate to Lola - An American Bistro. No purchase is necessary to enter the drawing.

 

The GnomeMade Artisan Market has received support from the New Ulm Convention and Visitors Bureau through their Advertising and Marketing Assistance Program and also received funding, in part, by the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council with an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund. A map of all locations can be obtained at the New Ulm Chamber at 1 North Minnesota or downloaded at gnomemademarket.com.

Nov 7 MLC Fall Musical - The Music Man
The MLC Forum presents their fall musical, The Music Man, Friday and Saturday, November 7-8, at 7:30 pm, and Sunday, November 9, at 2:00 pm. Set in the summer of 1912, The Music Man tells the story of Harold Hill, a con-artist/traveling salesman posing as a music professor who is starting boys’ marching bands. However, Marian Paroo, River City’s librarian, is not so easily hoodwinked. Meredith Willson’s 1957 Broadway hit has become one of the world’s most beloved family musicals for its catchy tunes, spirited dancing, and cheerful plot. Tickets are $10.00, $8.00, and $6.00. Call the Box Office at (507) 233-9114 for reservations.

Nov 8 GnomeMade Artisan and Vintage Market

Come to New Ulm and Shop with Your Gnomies! The 30th Anniversary of the GnomeMade Artisan Market will be held on Friday and Saturday, November 7 & 8 from 8 am to 5:30 pm and Sunday, November 9 from 11 am to 3 pm. Be the first to shop among select venues at our special Preview Sale held Thursday, November 6 from 6 pm to 8 pm (see* listings). The free event celebrates three decades of success by featuring the art and craft of local makers. Easily one of the most long-standing art and craft marketplaces in the region, the GnomeMade Artisan Market has earned a reputation as an annual showcase of high-quality items that bring patrons back year after year. 

 

Founded in 1984 by a group of young women who shared a passion for creating distinctive art and skilled handcraft, the makers of the collective continued to hold loosely organized arts and craft shows every year on the first weekend of the Minnesota DNR deer hunting season opener. In recent years, the popular market has since evolved to include several emerging and professional artists as well as fine craftsmen. 

 

With roots firmly planted in German heritage and folk craft, the GnomeMade Artisans strive to share artistic endeavors, moments of discovery, insightful advice and inspiration. Dedicated to enhancing lives with artful elements, individual artists volunteer their time to local organizations and schools by teaching arts and craft classes. Individual venues also host painting classes and weekend creative get-aways. 

 

Explore local culture and visit with our artisans in their private studios, homes and in historic New Ulm locations. Look for our gnome signs at the following venues: From the Heart Creations at 610 North Payne Street, Seasons at the Brewery at 1602 Hauenstein Drive, Stone Cottage Market at 1214 South Franklin Street, On A Whimsy Home Furnishings* at 61851 Zempel Drive, The Craft Castle in the Armory at 205 North Broadway, Little Brick Haus on State* at 400 North State Street, T&L Crafts* at 822 South Broadway, Lindbacken Artisans at Center & State Streets, No. 213 at 213 South Minnesota, The Fruit Cellar at 417 First South, Thusnelda’s Guild at 500 South Washington, The Needle House* at 1422 North Payne, Primitive Gatherings at 14 South Minnesota, Atta Girl* at 19999 Saddle Hills Drive, Rethunk Junk at 316 South Garden Street, Women’s Expo and Craft Fair at 318 South Payne Street (Saturday Only 9 to 2) and the United Methodist Women Bazaar and Lunch at Center & Broadway (Saturday Only 9 to 1).

 

New this year is the GnomeMade Young Artist and Theatre Workshop held at the State Street Theater on Saturday, November 8 from 9 am to Noon or 1 to 4 pm. The workshop includes a short performance of ‘The Gnome’s Home” and is open to kids grades K-6. Fee is $5 and class size is limited. Register by calling 507.276.6298 or email nugnomes@gmail.com

 

Over $500 in gifts will be given away in a special anniversary drawing. The grand prize includes an overnight stay at the Deutsche Strasse Bed and Breakfast, which was recently named ‘Best Historic B&B in Minnesota’, and a $25 gift certificate to Lola - An American Bistro. No purchase is necessary to enter the drawing.

 

The GnomeMade Artisan Market has received support from the New Ulm Convention and Visitors Bureau through their Advertising and Marketing Assistance Program and also received funding, in part, by the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council with an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund. A map of all locations can be obtained at the New Ulm Chamber at 1 North Minnesota or downloaded at gnomemademarket.com.
