Handmade events: LOVE Haven

love haven logoYesterday I took some time to stop by the LOVE Haven event here in New Haven, CT.  This event, organized by Melissa Gonzales of Vintanthromodern Vintage/ Vintathromobile, is part of a growing series of holiday-themed venues created to feature crafters, makers and artists from around Connecticut. Located at the historic Trolley Square, former repair site for the New Haven trolley system and Robby Len swimsuit factory, this building has now been reincarnated as a haven for unique retail, art and fitness businesses. Yesterday’s event centered around the theme of love, both for the upcoming Valentine’s day holiday as well as for the passion these artists exhibit for their craft. Here are a few pics from the event.
