North Texas M.A.D.E. is teaming up with GGP Malls to bring you the Local Maker Mall Tour 2016. We're super excited to partner with GGP this year to introduce talented local makers to a whole new market!

Malls have long been the home of corporate retail shops; similar stores all in a row, with items often made overseas and levels of corporate management. While that's all well and good, we're ready to bridge the gap between the corporate world and small business. We're bringing a select group of indie makers to you, proving that you can find original, beautifully handmade goods in your own backyard; items created in the USA, right here in North Texas! With just as much class, sparkle and high quality you expect to find among your regular mall retailers, you'll also find innovation, originality and personalized service when you shop with small, independently run businesses.

Grab your phones, call your friends, save the dates!


Hulen Mall - Fort Worth - Saturday, August 6, 2016  10am-6pm  (Tax Free Weekend)

Parks Mall - Arlington - Saturday, August 13, 2016  10am-6pm


Your hard earned money goes directly to the maker, who you'll get to meet and chat with when you make your purchase. They work hard everyday to bring you quality goods you can be proud to bring into your home; handcrafted, one of a kind items that can often be customized to suit your needs. Shopping with local artisans not only boosts the local economy, but helps those artisans support their families, and grow their business to better serve you, and their communities.

We know you'll have lots of reasons, including back to school, to be out shopping at your local malls this summer. We hope you'll take time to stop by to meet, and shop, with our amazing local artists, craftsmen, and women, while you're there. We look forward to seeing everyone in August!

Be sure to find and follow North Texas M.A.D.E. on Instagram, Facebook and other social media to keep up with local artisan news and show previews.

GGP has over 120 properties nationwide, with 4 thriving DFW centers, which consists of Stonebriar Centre, Parks Mall in Arlington, Town East Mall and Hulen Mall.
