Welcome to the 2021 Virtual Arts and Crafts Marketplace Directory!
The NCCBF Arts and Crafts Fair showcases the talent of handcrafted products and designs of artisans from across the country encompassing the theme of the Cherry Blossom Festival. All of these artisans are independent artists, and revenue from craft show sales are the main source of income for many of these individuals. We miss inviting our vendors to share their crafts along Buchanan Mall, but we are grateful to include many of our long-term artisans who have supported our Festival for years.
Our 54th annual Festival theme is Kizuna – Strength through Bonds of Community and Friendship, and we want to celebrate the strength and resilience of our artisan community during current times. Although we are not holding an in-person festival this spring, you can show your support for the artisans by purchasing from many of them online!
Learn more about the artisans who were selected for the 2021 Festival below.
Please note that all promotions and information are accurate at time of publishing and are subject to change at any time. For most up-to-date information, please check with the individual artist. Thank you.

6 Degrees of Hapa is all about celebrating mixed cultures through apparel, art, community building, and storytelling! The artist behind 6 Degrees of Hapa, Naomi Takata Shepherd, is based in San Jose, CA and started 6 Degrees of Hapa with just two t-shirt designs in 2011! Naomi draws inspiration for her art and apparel from her own Hapa identity and from Hawaiian imagery to honor that “hapa” is a Hawaiian word. When Naomi set out to create 6 Degrees of Hapa, she set out to create a brand that celebrates Hapas as individuals and the family, friends, and communities who help make us who we are. So why 6 Degrees of Hapa? Well, everyone’s connected to a Hapa!

The "science-y" part of me took me to the internet to research the best ingredients to resolve my issues.
