What is Handmade Holidays Makers Market?
Handmade Holidays Makers Market (HHMM) is Art Center East's most popular holiday shopping weekend of the year. For two days each November, the Art Center East galleries transform into a lively market of quality handmade goods. Shoppers can expect to find a wide range of goods, from leather, woodworking, artisan foods, weaving, and other fiber arts to ceramics, glass, clothing, jewelry, blacksmithing, home decor, bath and body products, art prints, paintings, cards, and much more.
Art Center East (ACE) selects Handmade Holidays Makers Market vendors for their work's quality and uniqueness and curates the lineup to include a balanced and engaging selection. Previous years of this event have also included a festive outdoor beer garden.
