To make things a little easier for shoppers, we thought we'd make a few suggestions. Here is a selection of our vendors that feature items perfect for holiday entertaining. Whether it's a gift for a loved one, or the perfect item for your next holiday party, add these items to your list! There's so much more to discover at Crafty Mart @ Goodyear on Friday, Dec. 23rd.
Lauren H-B Studio's ceramic objects are perfect for holiday entertaining because they are highly functional yet thought provoking and conversation starters. Her sets of dishes look wonderful as accent pieces on any kitchen counter but can be unstacked and used for all sorts of party snacks. They can be thrown in the dishwasher at the end of the night too, which makes for an easy post-party evening.
Nothing is better to make food with than natural wood! At Three Frog Studios, we focus on smart and functional things to cook with, and they add a warm touch to your kitchen, from cutting boards to spoons, pizza peels, bookstands to hold your favorite cookbooks, and even a pastry board for the ambitious chef. Our wood (maple, cherry, walnut, beech) all comes from neighbors’ yards or an Amish yard in Middlefield.
At A. Marsden Artwork, Native Alaskan potter Araina Marsden, now based in Pittsburgh, creates functional ceramics which are perfect for the holiday season. Fill these reed diffusers with your favorite cozy scents and set the mood for your holiday gatherings. Araina also creates large mugs, with or without lids, so you can sip hot cocoa or eggnog. All of her products are microwave safe so you will never have a cold drink. And when all your guests leave, each item can go straight in the dishwasher for easy clean up. Araina's colorful pottery will add a festive feeling to your home this holiday season. If you are shopping for last minute gifts, make sure to pick up a ceramic travel mug or porcelain ornament adorned with Native Alaskan artwork.
For a few extra shopping suggestions, we can recommend items from a couple of featured artists & makers who have worked with us in the past. While entertaining over the holidays, you may be looking for invitations or thank you cards--check out Champaign Paper.
What is a party without fresh delicious coffee? Look for Akron Coffee Roasters at the show.
And, every party hostess needs an attractive apron--or needs to receive one as a gift! Threadbare Beauty has what you're looking for!
We'll see everyone on Friday, Dec 23rd from noon-7pm at Crafty Mart @ Goodyear.
