Handmade Gifts: Meaningful Giving While Supporting Community
For us, gift giving has always been such a joy. It's a moment to show our loved ones just how much we're thinking of them, how we -see- them, & how much we appreciate their uniqueness. If you've ever visited us at market, you know that same spirit is held within our community of makers & creatives, & that we're grateful to bring our authentic selves to what we do.
That's exactly what makes handmade gifts so special.
With that in mind, we've put together a gift guide, with some of our favorite makers, for each of our events this holiday season. Treat your loved ones or treat yourself, either way, keeping it local makes all the difference in the world.
