Tara Jayne Designs of Abington selling handmade products at Michaels this weekend

Tara Jayne Designs, an Abington-based handmade artisan, will be selling their products at Michaels in the Abington Shopping Center (1415 Old York Road) on Saturday, March 23 from 11:00am – 3:00pm.

When the pandemic started, Tara began Tara Jayne Designs as a way to connect with others through art. After some trial-and-error testing various mediums and materials for her products, she landed on concrete bases with painted acrylic designs. She now sells a collection of hand poured and painted items, including large and small hand painted concrete trays, coasters, and incense holders.

As a lifelong customer of Michaels, Tara began selling on MakerPlace by Michaels—a new marketplace dedicated to supporting and helping handmade artists grow their businesses.

The sale will feature goods from local sellers, all of which are available on Michaels’ “MakerPlace”, a new online marketplace for handmade goods, classes and how-to’s.

The event will allow Michaels customers to find local handmade artists and shop for goods available on their MakerPlace storefronts directly in-store.

From Tara Jayne Designs’ announcement:

Welcome to a collection of hand poured and painted concrete items to decorate your space. Each piece is meticulously crafted using concrete in all of its natural beauty. The subtle variations in the textures and colors of each piece is celebrated, and truly makes each one of a kind. If you lean towards a minimalist aesthetic, a boho vibe or enjoy abstract elements this collection is for you!
