The annual Holiday Artisans Market kicks off on Friday, November 16 in the Gallery at the Chandler Center for the Arts. The popular annual market, featuring the creations of 50+ artisans and crafters from throughout central Vermont and the Upper Valley, will continue through Sunday, December 23.
The Chandler Gallery has been transformed into a warm, welcoming, country-store-style atmosphere, steeped in the tradition of small-town Vermont. This year, the Artisans Market welcomes back several popular artisans and crafters, while also introducing many new ones, promising a more varied selection of unique, Vermont-made products and goodies than ever before.
Market organizers invite you to shop at Chandler for all of your gift-giving needs. Stop by and enjoy a cup of warm cider while perusing a delightful array of gift items, including handcrafted pottery; jewelry; locally made pickles, spices, and sweets; and other sensuous and sumptuous fare. Pick up a pair of Green Mountain Glove Company work gloves for a loved one, an apron or a pair of socks for Mom or Dad, or handcrafted soaps and lotions for a favorite family member or friend.
The Holiday Artisans Market hours are Thursday and Friday, 12-6 pm; Saturday, 9-4 pm; and Sunday, 10-4 p.m. Hours are extended on those evenings when there are performances in Chandler Music Hall. A gift-wrapping service is available each Saturday. Weekends may also feature a strolling musician or an artisan demonstration as part of the festivities.
Volunteers are needed to assist with customer service at the Artisans Market. Volunteers receive special “market dollars” to spend in-house. If you have good customer service skills and would like to work three-hour shifts with other volunteers, contact Andrea Easton at firstname.lastname@example.org. Plus if you or your organization would like to provide gift-wrapping as a fundraiser, you’re welcome to offer that service as well.
The Chandler Holiday Artisans Market benefits Chandler Center for the Arts and the many artisans, crafters, and food purveyors who take part in the annual holiday tradition. Show your support by celebrating community and the spirit of local entrepreneurship this holiday season.
