Take the Handmade Holiday Promise!
Commit to making or buying handmade items for everyone on your wishlist. Resist the urge to pick up a gift card when you know that handmade items make a more memorable gift. Promise to avoid the chaotic commercialism of Black Friday and instead check out these events and ideas…
- Cruise the internet for easy and fun DIY holiday gifts.
- Get in on the Small Business Saturday movement. People everywhere are heading out Saturday November 26 to shop in small local business and shops. Stop at a small eatery for lunch and dinner to cap off the day! I highly recommend The Blue Door Cafe and Bakery in Cuyahoga Falls for breakfast or lunch.
- Stop by the Third Annual Crafty Mart at Musica in downtown Akron, Saturday November 26, 10a-5p
- Find Etsy shops that are in your region and purchase items from the many talented crafters online.
- Complete your shopping list at Portage Trail Barn Dec 1-3, Thursday 4-7, Friday and Saturday 10a-3p
