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.
