BAM Co Create

Crafts & Brews // Our First Maker Market in Baltimore!

CHEERS to crafts and craft beers - and to so many inspiring makers who came together to make our first market amazing!

It's 100% humbling to look back through the photos of our first market, especially this week. One year ago, Britney and Marlayna were sitting in R House, enjoying some excellent cocktails, and letting our ideas run wild with this little thing call BaM Co-Create.

In that time, we decided we wanted to become a resource for sharing DIY tutorials, handcrafted products and projects by local makers, and inspiration for events, wedding, and the home! We also quickly realized that where our passion really is right now, is LOCAL. We love Baltimore! And we are so thrilled that our first Maker Market could be held at such a perfect spot in the city - Union Craft Brewing Co! Their space is inviting and we quickly realized would be perfect for vendors and mini demo workshops alike. We put out the idea, got the yes, and then put out the call to makers! We are so grateful to everyone who shared and supported this idea, and to every maker who showed up for it!! The day zoomed by for us but looking at these photos reminds us to take a second and savor how fun the event was. We saw Union filled, Well-Crafted Kitchen slammed for orders, and SO. MANY. HAPPY people making and buying locally! It was incredible!!! So thank you to everyone that made this so much fun!

AND (shameless plug - truly shameless because it's our blog!), if you had fun, or if you had FOMO, from the Crafts & Brews event at Union, be sure to mark your calendars for our MayFair Market on May 5th!! We are back at it again partnering with Maker Practice in Catonsville to bring you a spring market just in time for Mother's Day (and treatin' yourself!). Can't wait to see you there!! Keep an eye on our Instagram page and Facebook page for more details coming this week!!

Meet the Authors

When Marlayna isn't diving into BaM projects, she's also a wedding photographer, and the photographer at UMBC! When she's not photographing, she loves to kick back and relax with her husband Adam and their two cats Zoe and Annie! And when they're not at home, they love to travel and try new beers, cocktails, and of course, delicious food!
