Support Local Artists and Makers on Shop Small Saturday

Join us in celebrating the holiday season this weekend at Scott Family Amazeum! On Shop Small Saturday, Curiosity Corner, the Amazeum’s museum store, will be hosting local artists and makers from all over Northwest Arkansas to showcase their products. On November 26th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Shop Small Saturday will have several local entrepreneurs with incredible maker-made products available for you to shop. All the proceeds from museum store sales go directly back into making every day amaZING at the Amazeum.

 

The Maker Spotlight program by Curiosity Corner is designed to shine a light on local makers and artists that live in our community. Every month, makers partner with our museum store to offer their products for sale and host on-site events several days throughout the month to share their skills and talents with guests of all ages. Tomorrow's scientists, inventors, artists, and engineers come through our doors every day for hands-on learning and discovery. By shopping at our museum store, you are supporting exploration and learning for the future generations.
