Here’s what’s happening at Selden Market

NORFOLK — Selden Market just announced its new incubator tenant as well as its new and returning pop-ups on the weekends and during events this winter season.

For All Handkind, Selden Market’s newest incubator tenant, is a retailer featuring a collection of more than 20 artists with handmade, fair trade and locally sourced goods.

For All Handkind’s mission is to support new and emerging makers and their practice by giving them a platform to sell handmade goods.

Five percent of each artist’s sales goes to a charity of their choice, according to Selden Market’s news release.

The addition of Hillary Davenport Designs and Natejer Botanicals expands the selections at Selden Market.

For All Handkind has been a pop-up since the opening in 2017, and it also has a storefront in MacArthur Center in Norfolk.

“We love the maker community that exists at Selden Market, and we are excited to bring our hands-on workshops to the space,” said For All Handkind owner Kimberly McKinnis.
