The purpose of the Handmade Gift Fair is to highlight unique one of a kind crafts made by local artists. Patrons who shop at the Gift Fair are given an alternative to buying foreign or manufactured products thus supporting local American artists, instead of foreign imports.
Among our 20 local crafters are a number of eco-friendly artists, adding an environmental aspect to the event. The event also includes a few foreign born artists, bringing their native homeland crafts, which lends a multi-cultural atmosphere to the Gift Fair.
Following the earth-friendly theme, decorations are created from large reused corrugated boxes covered in found fabrics and ribbons. These are then transformed by the artists into large gifts that will tower in stacks throughout the venue.
Artists participating so far are:
Maria Moore Riggs
Ben and Linda Brackner
Musical Entertainment for the event will include:
4 pm Russian Romance
as well as Henna Temporary Tattoos by Rosemary Kimble and
Face Painting by Andrea Zoppo
