Beaded Baubles and Bourbon
- Oct. 24, 2016
-- This holiday season, skip online shopping. Instead, shop local at the second annual Shoppe Artisan event hosted by Market Maker Events at the Cobb Galleria Centre on Friday, Dec. 9 to Sunday, Dec. 11, 2016. Touch and feel products in person to find the perfect gifts for everyone.
"Shopping locally has a positive effect on our community," explained Lori Kisner, Shoppe Artisan founder and president of Market Maker Events. "By purchasing from our artisans and crafters, shoppers not only enjoy a more unique and personal experience, they also build relationships, help strengthen their local economy and so much more."
Another benefit of attending Shoppe Artisan is trying on and trying out items before making a purchasing decision, unlike when shopping online. Shoppers will leave knowing that they do not have to worry about making returns, getting a product that does not match the description or giving the same gift as someone else.
Shoppe Artisan will feature a curated collection of distinctive items chosen from thousands of independent makers throughout North America. The top 120 artists, about a third of which are based in Georgia, including Alpharetta, Marietta, Roswell and Sandy Springs, will offer high-quality and innovative products. These include home and garden goods, fashion accessories, beauty and wellness items, gourmet, culinary ware and eats, clothing and footwear, children's products, fine jewelry, tech accessories – and those difficult to find men's gifts!.
Join the shop local movement this December. Attend Shoppe Artisan on Friday, Dec. 9 from noon to 8 p.m. or 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10 or Sunday, Dec. 11. Advance tickets for adults are available online for $8.00 or can be purchased for $10.00 at the door. For tickets and additional information, please visit shoppeartisan.com
