We are thankful for you.

Through your support of Simply Hand Made we are able to:
Promote the unique work of local artists.
Preserve the antique jail building that we call home.
And Provide funds for the independent Fredericksburg Community Library.

But that isn’t all!  We have also started Art in the Park, an annual outdoor event to kickstart the library’s summer reading program and foster a love of both art and literacy in children.  Attendance continues to increase each year, and summer reading participation continues to go up!

Our hope is to continue to find new ways to support both the arts and literacy in our community, and your patronage makes that possible.  Thank you and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Holiday Hours
We are staffed by volunteers, and so our store hours will be a little different this holiday weekend:
Thanksgiving: CLOSED
Friday: 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Saturday: 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Looking ahead:  Our last day of the season to shop will be December 23rd.  After that we will be closed to restock, rearrange, and refresh until February 2024.
