Our co-op of creators provide an abundance of original art, crafts, specialty foods, and literature for the discriminating shopper.
How we came to be...
In partnership with the Town of Randolph, a group of vendors got together in the spring of 2014 to establish the Randolph Artisans and Farmers Market. At the end of the market season, the Artisans decided to continue and secured a space at Stetson Hall in Randolph and at Thayer Nursery in Milton for the holiday season. After a very successful holiday season, the Artisans who located to Stetson Hall decided to continue selling our products at this location and established a Co-Op, ‘The Artisans at Stetson Hall (ASHC)’. Today, we are a member-owned and operated Co-op business, providing a venue for Artisans – artists, crafters and specialty food vendors – to sell products year-round. We are primarily comprised of member Artisans/crafters who have mastered their product and creative discipline. They all have their own followings from well-established businesses. They support each other in the day-to-day management of the Co-op and the sale of their collective products.
Who we are today...
Now, as in the past, we seek to capture the creativity, spirit and essence of diverse artisans and crafters with a variety of styles, products, and price points. We strive to carry products that please – high quality, handcrafted, and locally made. We work as a team. Our approach is collaborative and congenial. Strengths are celebrated and utilized, even as wisdom is shared and grown. We've added to our number as other members have departed for new endeavors, and we've further expanded our product lines with individually curated consigners.
We now offer a "Book Nook" with select local authors whose themes and topics also celebrate art, culture, and healthy lifestyles. This is a totally new direction, but a welcome addition to the other products you'll find when you visit. Unique Jewelry rotates through our display cases and fine art also adorns our walls through local vendors and close connections. Our aim is always to be fresh, tasteful, and different from any shopping experience one might find within our local geography.
