Discover Something Wonderful
A first visit to Marketplace 120 reveals room after room of creative surprises and delights as customers wind through the maze of little shop spaces filled with hand-crafted treasures. One could spend an hour or a day browsing the endless charms of the handmade goods and unique finds.
No other business can match the artistic variety and affordability of Marketplace 120 just off I-75 and the South Loop in Marietta. It is an artisan market featuring over 100 boutique consigners and independent sellers displaying their artistic styles and personalities with the purpose of providing a unique and fun shopping experience. Their collection of individual consigner arts and crafts is diverse in mediums, style and price.
The owners have created a 14,000 sq. ft. eclectic boutique-style business that features a wide variety of fine art, photography, jewelry and craft creations. Antiques to vintage items, to jellies, handmade soaps and candles, there is truly something for everyone. There’s even art classes and Mahjong Mondays.
Owner Karen Tapelband, together with her helpful staff, strive to create a community for artists, craftspeople, and all of us who value such talent. “I like to think of MarketPlace 120 as a brick and mortar version of Etsy,” says Tapelband. “And even better yet, customers have an opportunity to meet and interact with the artists and artisans who frequent the store and participate in store events.”
One of the key features of the business is to unite artists with artists and expose artists to the community. The facility also hosts a professional exhibition gallery named the OTP Gallery with a mission to provide a specialized setting for established and emerging artists to showcase their work and share their passion for creative expression.
Marketplace 120 curator, Katryn Taylor, will reserve the gallery on a monthly basis at no charge for artists to preview their paintings, sculptures, photography and yes, even films. Each month they host a “First Saturday Art Reception” that is free to the public, celebrating the local artist exhibition.
Marketplace 120 also features special events and fundraisers throughout the year in their event rooms and open space areas. Just minutes from East Cobb, Smyrna, Kennesaw, and downtown Atlanta, it’s well worth the visit and the drive.
