“The thousands of patrons who come each year to our show at the Morristown Armory know that we showcase extraordinary, one-of-a-kind and limited edition fine arts and crafts – all made in America by American hands – and that all our profits go to local charities,” said Price.
The exhibiting artists will display and sell their original and magnificent creations in jewelry, leather, ceramics, metal, glass, wood, furniture, mixed media, wearable fiber and more..
For the last two years, Sunshine Artist Magazine has named the Morristown CraftMarket on its list of “100 Best Classic & Contemporary Craft Shows” in the nation.

Silent Auction to Benefit Sam’s NICU
For the fourth consecutive year, the show will hold a Silent Auction in loving memory of Robert James (“RJ”) Nelson, III, a brave baby boy who was born 13 1/2 weeks premature and fought hard for the right to live for 82 days.
The Silent Auction will continue to put the show’s spotlight on premature birth, which is a national health crisis. Proceeds from the Silent Auction will benefit the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of Morristown Medical Center (“Sam’s NICU”), which helps premature babies and their families.
The Silent Auction will conclude at 5pm on Sunday, October 20. Winners will be notified and need not be present.
