Summer MADE fair coming right up!

The alternative arts and crafts market that was started 7 years ago by Carol Lynn Lapotka, owner of REcreate designs, grows more and more each year. The artists are unique in their styles and showcase what Missoula is all about. We don’t need to say a whole lot as the made fair poster illustrated by Courtney Blazon speaks for itself. There will be food and drink vendors as well so if you have a hungry belly or need to quench your thirst while you shop that won’t be a problem. Don’t miss out!

REcreate designs

Our VERY FIRST business feature with a special offer is from REcreate designs a local (and of course fantastic) company started by Carol Lynn Lapotka.

A quick overview of who they are and a special offer just for Missoula Onliners!

REcreate history
REcreate designs was founded in Madison, WI. After years of making unique, handmade holiday gifts for friends and family, founder Carol Lynn Lapotka began producing one-of-a-kind creations for local craft and street fairs. Carol Lynn studied art, design, and environmental studies at Edgewood College, and in 2005 she transformed these interests into a business.

how REcreate does it
REcreate designs is a collection of clothing, books, bags, and accessories made from upcycled bits and pieces. Raw materials are sourced from thrift and second-hand outlets and repurposed into one-of-a-kind products. We reclaim and breathe new life into cast-off scraps. We see things not as they are, but what they can become.

where REcreate design magic happens
Once a one-person operation housed in an apartment basement, REcreate designs has expanded into a 750 square-foot production space in the foothills of the Mission Mountains. We use industrial machinery to create a consistent and well-constructed product. We select, sort, and stow all of our materials within the studio and maintain a tidy work space…most of the time.

Your special offer!
Get down to the farmers market sometime this summer and show REcreate this coupon to save!
