An Artisan Affair is an annual, cancer charity based, makers market, hosted by NoBull Vintage.
An Artisan Affair 2015 will benefit the YMCA ABC (After Breast Cancer) Outreach Program & Wig Bank for it’s second year. NoBull Vintage is the host of An Artisan Affair and is a local small business founded by a family that has been repeatedly devastated by cancer. Through their own family struggle, NoBull Vintage discovered a way to incorporate community, small business, and artisans, in their philanthropic journey. An Artisan Affair was born from the yearning desire to help others affected by cancer. This boutique style market is a gathering of wonderfully talented local farmers, artists, craftsmen, DIYers, entertainers, small businesses, and volunteers, coming together to share their talents and goods through an open air, festival type, market place. The 2015 event will take place at 900 N. Maney Ave. at Oaklands Historic House Museum in bustling downtown Murfreesboro, TN the weekend of June 12th & 13th 2015. Local businesses have partnered with NoBull Vintage to support An Artisan Affair. Here is where the public can be of tremendous support. Go online to www.AnArtisanAffair.org and purchase your ticket. We can’t do it without you! Bring your friends & family members along with your trucks and trailers to haul away your new found treasures of architectural salvage, vintage, antique, and handmade furniture pieces, original art, local produce, soaps, trendy clothing, handmade jewelry, quilts, specialty paints, metal works, and more. Be sure to hang around for a family horse and carriage ride with Rockn’ B Horse & Carriage. Grab a bite of delectable food from Savoy Catering featured on Food Networks Cut Throat Kitchen, and pull up a chair for some live music from artists such as Angela Easley and Hope Cassity NCMA vocalist of the year. Enjoy how to demonstrations from guest bloggers Dreaming-N-Color, The Scrap Shoppe, and Flamingo Toes. Visit our authors for a book signing of A Boy Back from Heaven and Hanging On for Dear Life and be sure not to miss our LIVE auction with Comas Montgomery Auction and Realty Company. It will be a day of fun for the whole family.
*Please note that though we do work closely with affiliates of the program to insure success, An Artisan Affair and NoBull Vintage are in no way partnered with the YMCA or the ABC Program and Wig Bank. This is simply our cancer charity of choice for the 2015 event. If you have a cancer charity that would like to be considered as a beneficiary for 2016 please email NoBullT@gmail.com.
An Artisan Affair will be a fun family atmosphere that will evoke the support of the community.

Architectual salvage, antiques, vintage, painted, and custom built furniture, original art, handmade soaps & scrubs, local honey, jams, and produce, hand sewn and trendy clothing, purses, and quilts, jewelry, handmade home decor, custom lighting, metal craftsmen, welders, woodworkers, carpenters, and DIYers. The food is always delectable and the entertainment top notch. We strive to incorporate local business sponsors and community volunteers in to this event.
