Simply Hand Made’s purpose is simple: to promote the work of artists and craftspeople, preserve an historic landmark, and provide ongoing revenue for the Fredericksburg Community Library.

Simply Hand Made is located in an historic one-room jail building, built in 1916, lovingly restored.  Our goal is to develop relationships with artists and makers of all types, offering a place for their work to be sold alongside other unique items of high quality handicraft.

All profits from Simply Hand Made support the Fredericksburg Community Library, established in 1998 as an independent library, completely staffed by volunteers.  Your purchase of gifts at Simply Hand Made will not only support the artist who made it, but also the ongoing work of the library and its programs for the community.

Thank you for visiting! Our displays and items for sale will change with the seasons – something new to see each time you stop.  We hope to see you often!
