Susan Snyder's vision for Chase Creek Marketplace was simple: Provide "handcrafted gifts by people we know." Since the store opened eight years ago, artists from Clifton and Morenci have showcased their work. Snyder herself even contributes her wares, which include earrings, rosary bracelets and knit caps.

What was the inspiration for the marketplace?
About 18 years ago, several local artists started a volunteer gallery in the old train depot in Clifton, which we called The Art Depot. After operating for 10 years, we ran out of available volunteers to keep the depot open to the public. I was friends with many of the artists from The Art Depot and wanted to help make their art available to everyone. Eight years ago, I was able to purchase a building on Chase Creek Street and open a shop for artists to sell their art and crafts all year.

What things are most popular?
We have a wide variety of items, such as pottery, salsa, paintings, clothing and, of course, jewelry. So, we're not just known for one thing.

What will surprise people most about the marketplace?
Everything is locally made. You don't have to travel an hour to Safford to find a gift. They're all one-of-a-kind items; you never have to worry about arriving at a party and showing up with the same gift.

— Andrea Crandall

Chase Creek Marketplace is located at 215 Chase Creek Street in Clifton. For more information, call 928-865-1251 or visit www.chasecreekmarketplace.com.
