But wait, there's MORE good news. This year the event debuts a FRIDAY NIGHT opening!!! 'Whaaaaa?!', I hear you say. Uh. Yeah. That’s right. The twelve days of Christmas are squeezed in to two... and a half! With a twilight shopping evening from 5-9pm for those who wish to beat the crowds and shop by starlight.


It’s the most wonderful time of the year and we are spreading the crafty Christmas cheer. And it’s all handmade with love and joy... so no guilt if you buy a little something something for yourself too, promise *wink wink* Shop small and local this silly season, alrighty?!
