The Saturday after Thanksgiving downtown Modesto along J Street, between 10th Street and 13th Street, was bustling with shoppers carrying a kaleidoscope of handcrafted items made of metal, wood, clay, glass, fabric, wool, wine corks, leather, and more. This year Mod Shop  Indie Crafter Market, Modesto’s colorful spin on Small Business Saturday, boasted over 60 local crafters. Locations included Peer Recovery Art Project Incorporated, Concetta, Mira’s Bridal, Deva Cafe and Preservation Coffee and Tea. The Modesto Chamber of Commerce was the site of the raffle benefiting Haven Women’s Center of Stanislaus. Mistlin Gallery was the location of a community mural and Mini Mod Shop, which featured young entrepreneurs selling their unique handmade wares. The turnout to the event was impressive, with many of the shops filled to maximum capacity throughout the evening. Shoppers could even commemorate the event by stopping to snap a photo at the The Platinum Photo Booth.
