Queen Bee Market
debuted in Las Vegas this past weekend with a two-day craft fair hosted at The Conference Center of Las Vegas. The urban-style market, imagined as “Etsy come to life,” featured over 60 handmade vendors who sold their imaginative products from booths designed with flair (Pictured: Vendors from Queen Bee Market pose with sign by market entrance – Photo credit: Megan Plenge).

More than a thousand shoppers, eager to fill their bags with unique handcrafted items, scoured the bustling market for everything from baby accessories to DIY pocket frames to repurposed furniture and home décor. When they weren’t snapping up crafty one-of-a-kind treasures, shoppers enjoyed tasty Chicago-style gyros and decadent Belgium waffles from local food trucks, Greek Delights and Waffle Luv.  Many artisans on display included local Las Vegas businesses, like Kristin Smith of BB Frösch, Staysi Lee of Staysi Lee Bridal Boutique and Amber Grimshaw of Amber’s Umbrella.
