The Big Crafty
The gift-giving season is a good time to help local retailers and many shoppers did just that at The Big Crafty.
The semi-annual holiday bazaar showcases work by area artists-and-crafters.
People had their pick of everything from handmade jewelry, to pottery, to paintings, and more.
The sales-pitch is all about presents with more meaning, that come from close-to-home.
Angelyan Pass, Glak Love, "when you pick it out it's more sentimental to you because it isn't something that you can find in a big box store so when you are giving something that has been handmade by someone it's more unique."
There was a first at this year's The Big Crafty.
