If you have some holiday shopping to do, there’s still time! Also, some local Etsy sellers will be live and in person this weekend in Watertown with their handmade goods for sale. Below is some information from their Facebook page.
Just in time for the holidays, a selection of New England’s most talented artisans and crafters will bring the best of their handmade jewelry, fiber arts, ceramics, soaps, candles and body oils, sculpture, original illustrations, photography and paintings, chocolates and confections to the Arsenal Project (formerly the Arsenal Mall) for a weekend-long shopping extravaganza. With gift-wrapping on-site with proceeds going to charity and live musical performances from local musicians and choirs, this event is not to be missed!
If you’re looking to support local artists and buy gifts that you are certain were made in America, this is a great way to do it! Thank you to Dara Cheek for letting me know about this wonderful local event.
I met Dara when I visited ASSEMBLED in Somerville back in July 2013. Her Etsy shop is called Hieropice and I fell in love with her terrarium necklaces. She makes other beautiful items as well, so be sure to take a look. If you don’t get a chance to visit the Bazaar, you can still visit her shop online!
