2022 Holiday Open House

What could be better than shopping for Christmas in the cozy atmosphere of the converted Fredericksburg jailhouse? Enjoy some sweet treats, check out the wintery displays, and support the Fredericksburg Community Library with every purchase!

The Details!

Thursday November 10th 9am-7pm (Do you have trouble visiting during the day? Come during our special extended evening hours this night!)

Friday November 11th 9am-4pm

Saturday November 12th 9am-4pm

All three days, the more you shop, the more entries you will have in our raffle for a $50 gift certificate. (One entry for each $10 spent. Plus every purchase helps us provide funds for the local library!) See something you want for Christmas? Be sure to fill out a letter to Santa! (Then pass it on to someone who might be having a hard time coming up with gift ideas for you!)

Follow us here or on social media for some fun gift ideas too!

Free Kids Craft!

Every child is an artist, and we want to help them create! Pick up this free flower craft for kids when you visit Simply Hand Made this summer. Each kit includes a link for video instructions, plus information about upcoming children’s activities provided by the Fredericksburg Community Library and Simply Hand Made!

It’s the start of a new year at Simply Hand Made!

Snow and ice may have delayed our reopening, but now we are back! Open 9:00-4:00 Thursday-Saturday!

As we are staffed by volunteers, we will be closed any time the Southeast Local school district is closed due to weather. We never want our volunteers to feel unsafe driving on the roads to help us in the shop. When planning a visit, please feel free to call ahead to make sure a volunteer will be there that day, or to schedule an appointment outside of our normal open hours.

We look forward to sharing more amazing artisan work with you in the coming year!

Fall Merchant Day at Simply Hand Made!

Shop Saturday, October 16th for Fredericksburg Merchant Day! Every ten dollars spent earns you an entry in our raffle for this basket stuffed full of great items from our artists. Every purchase of any amount comes with a free gift.* Plus, we have free Halloween craft bags* for any kids who visit!

This is a great day to start your holiday shopping while supporting local artists and the Fredericksburg Community Library at the same time. Be sure to check out the specials at the other stores in Fredericksburg while you are here!

*Free gift with purchase and kids craft bags available while supplies last.

It’s Fall!

Saturday, September 26th we will be celebrating the start of Autumn with a big THANK YOU to our customers. WHILE SUPPLIES LAST every purchase of $30 or more will include a gift bag filled with Simply Hand Made merchandise! Also included in your gift bag is a mystery coupon worth $1, $5, or $10 off a future purchase!

Thank you to all the Simply Hand Made patrons, volunteers, and artists who together make this special store possible!

We are open! (By appointment)

Simply Hand Made is open again for customers! No, we do not have our regular hours staffed yet, but we are happy to open by appointment. Please call or email the shop to arrange a time to visit. Occasionally the shop will be open to the public, depending on the availability of volunteers who are comfortable with working during the COVID-19 crisis. However we ask that only one customer or customer group visit at a time to maintain social distancing. If the store is open to the public we will be posting that day’s hours on social media. Thank you for your patience and flexibility! We take the health and safety of our customers and volunteers very seriously and have been working hard to find solutions to be able to open during this difficult time.

We can’t wait to see you!
