Hippo began as CRAFT-O-RAMA, a seasonal holiday pop-up shop. For the past few years the shop has opened just after Thanksgiving and remained open until Christmas. Over 40 artists participate and fill the store with their one-of-a-kind handmade work. In 2016 we decided to expand our pop-up to a weekly outdoor Summer artisan market with a rotating group of vendors, as well as food and music each week. Now, CRAFT-O-RAMA has rebranded as 'Hippo' and we are opening FULL TIME in our shop at 741 Purchase Street in New Bedford, MA! The CRAFT-O-RAMA name will stay, but will now be our event brand where we will be planning more outdoor markets, workshops, and special events.
Taunton Municipal Airport serves the aviation needs of southeastern Massachusetts. Providing a safe and efficient airport, the Airport Commission has completed several improvement projects with the assistance of federal and state funding. Along with airport improvements, extensive private development has occurred at the airport with the construction of several new private hangars. The airport is one of the fastest growing in Massachusetts based on the significant increase in the number of based aircraft. The airport’s primary runway – Runway 12-30 – is paved and has a full-length parallel taxiway. A medium intensity, radio-controlled, edge lighting system services both the runway and the taxiway. Runway 30 is serviced by a non-precision NDB/GPS approach as well as a VASI. Runway 30 has also been designated for a future LPV approach. The airport offers 100LL fuel, tiedowns, and has an automatic weather station (ASOS).
