I'm willing to bet that you can find the perfect gift for everyone on your list by shopping handmade this holiday season! We are definitely here to help you with that, but beyond our brick and mortar shop (that is open 6 days a week, and has hundreds of handmade items to choose from) there are plenty of craft shows to attend and find the perfect gift! I've asked some of our makers to share their upcoming shows with me and am making one gigantic shopping list to share with all of you! Hopefully, at least one of these is in your area!
