This is the 7th Annual Meet-the Makers Holiday Open House. The beautiful, big wooden barn on Baseline Rd in Lafayette is filled to the brim with holiday cheer and handmade crafts and the talented artists that made them. Designer jams, sauces and snacks, textiles for the season, KNOTS boards and wooden utensils and so much more.
The Holidays are upon us and the shopping season is in full swing. Malls are too crowded and impersonal. Come into the warmth of a house boutique and shop with the artists whose crafts will become part of your own to give or keep. Cashmere wraps, reindeer leather bracelets, ceramics and of course beautiful Cutting Boards, Dipping Trays and wooden Utensils!
Join me for a unique and awesome Holiday market. All the farmer and food vendors that you shopped from all season to create your daily feasts PLUS 60 plus hand picked Artists with their individual crafts up for display and purchase. KNOTS will have some new boards and dipping trays this season filled with turquoise, malachite and lapis.
This Holiday Market is always highly anticipated by quality handmade artists and consumers alike. Join 100 Indie Artists indoors at the Boulder Embassy Suites. I’ll have a new layout so just look for my KNOTS sign.
