Give the Gift of LOCAL.

This Saturday and Sunday (Dec. 7-8),  there are two events that spotlight the local artisans just in time for Christmas gift giving:

URBAN CRAFT UPRISING

Urban Craft Uprising was started in 2004 to showcase the work of independent crafters, artists and designers — to provide a unique, high quality, hand-crafted alternative to “big box” stores and mass produced goods. At Urban Craft Uprising’s shows, fans can choose from a wide variety of hand-crafted goods including clothing of all types, jewelry, gifts, bags, wallets, buttons, accessories, aprons, children’s goods, toys, housewares, paper goods, candles, journals, art, food & much, much more. Each Urban Craft Uprising show is carefully curated and juried to ensure the best mix of crafts and arts along with originality and uniqueness.
