Calling All Artists!!! [Download Request Form in .pdf]
Our annual December Art & Gift Market allows holiday shoppers to buy quality, hand-made gifts from our regional & local artists, while shopping locally and supporting the beautiful work of many wonderful artists and craftsmen.
2014 Dates (TBA)
Some of these amazing handmade items typically available include oil paintings, photographs, blown glass ornaments, hand painted ornaments and digital fractal designs. This year we will also have pottery, quilts and other fiber art and handmade wood articles.
Be sure to stop in and pick some unique and finely crafted gifts perfect for all the special people in your life.
We offer 10 x 10 booth spaces at reasonable prices. Due to space limitations, our spaces are filling up fast. Our market is very well-attended by regional shoppers who expect quality, unique, hand-made items. We do not accept mass-produced items, resellers, commercial, or direct sales.
