This year’s Handmade Festival showcases beautiful and creative work from local craftspeople, including Jewelry,Copper Metal Work, Ornaments, Silk Art & Scarves, Hand Knit Items, Hand Turned Wooden Bowls, Artisanal Scents & Custom Perfumes, Adorable Baby Gifts, All Natural Bath & Body Products, and much more! There will be wonderful handmade wreathes and greens available for sale along with other goodies to help get you ready for the holidays!
Something beautiful happens when you support local artists and craftspeople–you strengthen your community and ensure that creative people continue to look to the Eastern Shore as a healthy and desirable area. Keeping money in our community closes a loop, adds vibrancy, and strengthens bonds. All featured artisans live locally and will be on hand to share information about their work. Our local friends & sponsors help keep this event vibrant!
Handmade from the Heart takes place at Evergreen’s center at 770 Port Street in Easton (just past the Londonderry Retirement Community). For more info please visit us at www.evergreeneaston.org
