Have you been to Lauderdale-by-the-Sea? It’s on a barrier island in the stretch between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, about 30 miles from Miami. It exemplifies everything about Florida’s Gold Coast: breathtaking, relaxing and fun. And for 18 years, American Craft Endeavors has been taking it all in by bringing the country’s best crafters to the Lauderdale-by-the-Sea area for a craft festival you will never forget.
Bring your family to this haven of relaxation for a weekend filled with sand, surf and sea. The 1.5 square-mile stretch is made for entertainment, with a park, several beaches and recreational facilities. In addition, being close to Pompano Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach opens up an entire world of dining, shopping and entertainment possibilities for the whole family. This weekend really could be the exciting family weekend getaway you’ve been planning.
But let’s talk for a minute about the Lauderdale-by-the-Sea Craft Festival. What do you get when you put over 100 crafters together with one of the most successful craft festival producers in the U.S.? You get a weekend of creativity and fun, where you’ll see firsthand the work of some of the best in the nation while introducing your loved ones to the joy of crafting. You’ll also experience the excitement of being on the beach, checking out some amazing work by really talented artists. You can buy yourself some great pieces, get a head start on holiday shopping, or find something for the birthday girl or boy in your life.
Find original, handcrafted items made in the U.S.A. Every participating crafter creates original material, all made in the U.S. We pride ourselves in our local and national talent and we love that the pieces sold at our festivals are 100-percent homemade and handcrafted with love.
Chat with the artists and crafters and find out about their methods. Our friend, Rickie Leiter, said in one of her latest emails from “The Rickie Report” just this week that the Lauderdale-by-the-Sea Craft Festival is the ideal opportunity to learn more about crafts — and she’s not kidding! With everything from gorgeous earrings to beautiful functional pieces like cutting boards and blown glass art, there is something for everyone to learn about and enjoy.
Bring home an unforgettable piece that suits your style and budget. Whether you’re a collector with thousands of dollars to spare or a mom looking for the ideal gift for a friend or loved one at a price you can afford, there is something for everyone at this weekend’s #LauderdaleCraftFestival .
