LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Local craftsmen and women utilized downtown to sell their handmade products at Makers Market in downtown Lafayette

This event is part of the Greater Lafayette Entrepreneurship week. It showcased many artisans.

Local jewelers, writers, painters, and musicians all displayed their work.

MatchBOX hosted the occasion and had a goal in mind.

They wanted all the local merchants to meet more clients and get the word abut their business.

One local entrepreneur  who loves painting said events like this help his trade.

"I do a lot of events in just different areas," said Jay Weinberg. "I mean like I said, so much of it is exposure and meeting people and talking and getting to share a story. There's nothing like being able to put a smile on someone's face."

Even News 18's Jeff Smith was there to sell his and show his art.

The Greater Lafayette Entrepreneurship Week wraps up this weekend.
