Handmade Holiday

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…

  1. Cruise the internet for easy and fun DIY holiday gifts.
  2. 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.
  3. Stop by the Third Annual Crafty Mart at Musica in downtown Akron, Saturday November 26, 10a-5p
  4. Find Etsy shops that are in your region and purchase items from the many talented crafters online.
  5. Complete your shopping list at Portage Trail Barn Dec 1-3, Thursday 4-7, Friday and Saturday 10a-3p
