I have been looking for stores that sell handmade goods by local crafters in Raleigh and Chapel Hill and was wondering if any of you crafty folks know of any...

Also any local coffeeshops that are more inclined to sell handmade goods would be awesome too, as one of my specialties in fabric coffee cozies (as an alternative to paper sleeves)...

Oh, I am interested also. What a great question.

Have you been to WomanCraft in Chapel Hill?  Very neat shop chock full of stuff and it's all made by women, hence the name.  It's in the Eastgate Shopping Center off 15-501 on one side and off Franklin St on the other side (two ways to get in).  But it's worth a look.  Neat place.

I don't know about Chapel Hill, but there's this coffee house in downtown Raleigh (right by the university) that sells some pottery and photo-prints from local artists. It's called Global Village on Glennwood Ave. It might be a job if you live in Chapel Hill,  but their coffee is really good if nothing else.

Thank fiberartsy and JillBoBill!

I will have to send my friend in Chapel Hill to WomanCraft to see if they would be interested (she's my go to gal in CH), and if not it sounds like somewhere she would love anyway.

And I am in Raleigh actually and my husband is a coffee junkie so we will have to check out that coffee shop, I will ask my BIL about it, he goes to State so he's probably been there (also a coffee junkie, it runs in the family, haha, I am surprised my 2.5 year old doesn't drink coffee from his sippy cup).

Again, thanks, I really appreciate the suggestions.

I'm a little late on this (just joined and was browsing the regional board  Grin), but you might try Cameron's in University Mall in Chapel Hill, they sell lots of cute handmade things, but I have no idea what their buying is like. Also, Cup A Joe in Timberlyne shopping center sells some local art. I don't know about crafts, but the cup cozies might go over well! And I second WomanCraft. Global Village is an excellent coffee house (I've known a handful of people who worked there), but none of them have ever heard of a piece of the art or pottery being sold, and personally I've never seen the pottery move. You could ask about the cup cozies there, though. The owner is very eco-minded. Good luck!  Smiley

Eclectic Garden on Wake Forest Road across from the Snoopy's in Raleigh sells those very things you are talking about. You could also display your goods in a place like Father & Sons downtown, where the entire multi-story building features things from different people. I bet several places up and down Glenwood South would feature local artists, too.

There is a place near Glenwood in downtown Raleigh.  The Purple Armchair.  They carry handmade goods.  It is a pretty cool place to check out.

In downtown Carrboro (which is right next to Chapel Hill) we have a store called Roulette Vintage that sells lots of handmade stuff, most of it upcycled clothing and accessories.
I love Roulette <3
