I Made It! Market offers hidden gems for the holidays

The event will feature nearly 100 local artists for a day of shopping in advance of the upcoming holiday season.


The annual I Made It! Market has returned for the holidays, giving shoppers an opportunity to find a unique gift and avoid hearing the dreaded words — “I already have this.”  

The one-day event takes place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Nov. 23 at the Edgewood Towne Center, featuring nearly 100 local artists and vendors you’d be hard pressed to find at a department store. The market will be hosting a range of locally crafted items, including jewelry, art, food and apothecary products. 

Decor retailers will be making themselves at home with artists such as K.Sorce Ceramics and Shelly Cubarney Pottery offering a colorful array of kitchenware. For the cooking-averse shopper, places like A519 Chocolate and Aunt Carol’s Gourmet Dips offer sweet and salty treats to satisfy those cold-weather cravings. 

Jewelry may be a frequently gifted item, but Divergence Design is giving its selection a Western Pennsylvania twist with a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired waterfall pendant necklace. Djoi Designs similarly offers a Christmas ornament featuring several iconic Pittsburgh skyscrapers, including PPG Place.
