Mint Hill Yoga’s Spring Craft Fair Set for May 5, 2018


If you missed Mint Hill Yoga’s October Craft Fair last year, here is your second chance. On Saturday, May 5 from 12 to 4 p.m., Mint Hill Yoga will host a spring Craft Fair, featuring unique and handmade items from local artists and creatives.

Give Your Mom a Gift as Unique as She Is

Scheduled the weekend before Mother’s Day, this fair will give attendees an opportunity to find truly one-of-a-kind gifts for the moms, mothers-in-law, and moms-to-be in their lives. Expect to find hand-knit items, pottery, and other spectacular finds, not available anywhere else.

And don’t forget the upcoming graduates. Forego the boring, typical gifts in favor of something that truly expresses your congratulations, such as a hand-knit blanket to warm up a dorm room or first apartment.

Mint Hill Yoga, which offers 10 different yoga classes per week, is located in The Lofts at 7714. This retrofitted mill property is right on Highway 51 (Matthews-Mint Hill Road) in downtown Mint Hill, between Woof n Hoof and Evans Auto Repair.
