I Made It! Market Can Simplify Your Holiday Shopping

More than 90 local handicraft artists will come together for a one-day event to save you from a panic-induced Christmas Eve shopping trip.

Everyone has a place on the gifting spectrum. Some have had their upstairs closet filled with wrapped goodies since July, some swear by Black Friday sales, others have a plan of attack on Cyber Monday to swiftly check every relative off the list while wearing pajamas — but some of us are a bit less proactive. The I Made it! Market could be the solution.

The I Made it! Market will feature more than 90 local artists gathering for a one-day shopping event from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m on Dec. 15 at the Block Northway on McKnight Road.

Lawrenceville’s Una Biologicals and Pip and Lola’s Everything Handmade in Homestead are among several local retailers to offer bath and body products such as soaps, essential oils and moisturizers — a solid option for the women in your life who “don’t need anything.”

If you’re looking for art, there will be plenty of options, including the work of North Side painter Mike Schiavone. Wood, leather and other products will be available, such as literary candles from North Ave. Candles (for that relative who’s obsessed with “Catcher In the Rye” but already owns ten copies of the book.)

Shoppers with kids or pets on the list can find gifts to suit them, too.

Learn more about the event here.
