DETAILS: Free pastries and coffee make this event the perfect break in the day for downtown employees looking to support our local economy. Conveniently located in the covered pavilion of the World Trade Center Plaza, more than fifty vendors offer shoppers quality handmade goods ranging from fragrant handmade soaps to personalized gifts, original photography, and much, much more. And, for those shoppers seeking a bargain, look for specially marked items for $5, $15 and $20 from participating vendors.
This year, Handmade NW partners with p:ear as a benefactor for this event. p:ear will host an information booth for those looking for more ways to support thier agency.
This event serves to support an economy of crafters and artisans who have committed to bring quality handmade goods to our community. The recipient of the handmade gift receives something that is one-of-a-kind, and made with care and attention that can be seen and touched. It is the result of skill and craftsmanship that is absent in the world of large-scale manufacturing. Handmade NW encourages all to support the local economy by buying local handmade gifts this holiday.
