However, if you are like me, or even if you're smart and plan ahead but just like to shop, then one stop you should definitely make this year is at the Detroit Urban Craft Fair, put on by Handmade Detroit. The annual fair, which is in it's 7th year, will take place at the Masonic Temple this weekend, December 1 from 10 a.m.- 7 p.m. and December 2 from 10 a.m.- 6 p.m.
There will be 100 local and national vendors selling unique, hand-made items ranging from homemade treats to home goods to accessories and clothing. So I'm sure you'll be able to find something for everyone on your list! A lot of our favorite local artists/designers will be on hand like Shawn Knight, Glass Action!, FLEE Studio and many more! For a full list of the vendors that will be there this weekend, you can go here.
If you get there early on Saturday and are one of the first 50 people in the door, you'll get a 'swag bag' filled with homemade goodies and coupons to make it worth getting up early!
Admission in to the fair is $1 for those 12 years and up. Happy shopping and remember to shop local and support your fellow Detroiters this holiday season!
