It’s craft show season. Here are four in November you must check out!

October 29, 2018

Everyone loves a good arts & crafts show! It’s the perfect place to go on a chilly weekend afternoon. You can get some holiday shopping done, get a bite to eat (there’s usually a concession!) and spend some time meeting local crafters and artists. We’ve listed four good ones that are happening in the month of November.

  1. November 3: Ogden Dunes Arts & Crafts Show, Ogden Dunes – Come see the wonders of local vendors and artisans selling diverse handmade goods that reflect our native environment and community. You’ll find creative gifts, homewares, health and beauty items, jewelry, artwork, vintage goods, handcrafted treasures and a variety of tasty noms including baked delights, soups, and chili (to eat in or take out!). As always, this event’s proceeds will benefit local charities. Dig the Dunes will have a table!  More information here.
