Looking for handmade, creative holiday gifts? Head to the Del Ray Artisans’ 24th Annual Fine Art and Fine Craft Holiday Market, held the first three weekends in December. The market offers handmade jewelry, pottery, glass art, paper crafts, photography, and many other items — such as pillows, mosaics, pressed flower art, and unique soaps. Wall calendars, cookbooks, and tote bags will also be on sale.
Different artists will be at the market every weekend, so don’t hesitate to make a return visit. All vendors donate a portion of their proceeds to Del Ray Artisans, a nonprofit organization to promote art in the community. Admission is free, and the market is open Fridays from 6-9 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. The market is held inside away from the elements at the Del Ray Artisans gallery in the Nicholas A. Colasanto Center.
