Want to give gifts that are a little more meaningful this year? Head to the Celebrate Newton Holiday Craft Fair on Dec. 5 to support local artisans and makers! It’s a perfect opportunity to get a one-of-a-kind item that tells a story for those who are most special to you this season. This year the event will be run by the Newton Cultural Alliance, a local consortium of nonprofits who support art and culture in our community. It’s a juried craft fair, which means all the artisans that participate must submit their work and be accepted to the fair. So what you will see is high-quality and hand-selected by talented jurors!
In previous years, examples of what you can find are vast! For those who want to give the gift of self-care, look for handmade soaps and lotions. If you want to give the gift of fashion, many artisans will hand-knit scarves and hats perfect for the season. Or go the jewelry route! To give the gift of art, the options are endless, as everything you see on display is truly a piece of art made with love and care by someone in our community. And there’s no gift more special than that. Happy shopping!
