Handmade Holidays Makers Market is Art Center East's most popular holiday shopping weekend of the year. For two days each year in 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 décor, bath, and body products, art prints, paintings, cards, and much more.

Art Center East (ACE) selects Handmade Holidays vendors for their work's quality and uniqueness and curates the lineup to include a balanced and engaging selection. No resale or corporate merchandise is accepted into Handmade Holidays – all items for sale must be made by the artist selling them. Previous years of this event have included a festive outdoor beer garden featuring Hines Meat Company, Yes Please Kettle Corn, and Side A Brewing.

Admission is always free! We invite you to vend with us at this joyous event - a celebration of everything local & handmade just in time for the holiday season!
