WHEN: Friday, November 28th, 5pm - 9pm (Troy Night Out)

WHY: With a focus on community and an emphasis on the do-it-yourself ideals of so many inspiring and creative people throughout the Northeast, Tight Knit seeks to support and encourage the work of local artists and businesses by offering a forum for the exchange, education, and appreciation of handmade, heartmade wares.
Coinciding with "Black Friday," one of the busiest shopping days of the year in the United States, Tight Knit's first venture will be to motivate local consumers to reconsider their big box store purchases, and buy local, handmade goods from the many talented artists, craftspeople and vendors working in the Capital Region, Hudson Valley, Berkshires, and Southern Vermont.
HOW: This event will be free to the public, and space will be provided to vendors at a nominal fee.
