One of the amazing booths that could be found at the European Market. HALEY HAMBLEN.
September 25, 2013ALPHARETTA, Ga. – For two days, local artists, craft makers and home décor vendors were in Alpharetta for the annual European Market.
On Sept. 21 and Sept. 22, Milton Avenue closed for the annual event that brought together area artists of every different medium, antiques collectors and other artisans ready to share their treasures.
"The two-day event had a great turnout," said Ali Leya, one of the vendors. "People were such troopers to come out in that crazy rain."
On-and-off rain put a dampener on the event Saturday; however Sunday was warm and dry.
The unique, colorful and exotic goods blew away those who visited the European street-style shopping event.
Eye-catching original artwork, handcrafted jewelry, vintage furnishings and décor, fashions of distant lands, garden accessories and homemade textiles were up for sale.
Excited guests and joyous vendors were eager to strike up conversations about art, fashion, culture and everything in between.
Attendees said they loved the warm and thrilling feeling the eclectic market brought to downtown Alpharetta.
