Holiday Handmade was so much fun!

Holiday Handmade was tons of fun this past weekend!

Thanks to everyone who came out to do their holiday shopping and support local handcrafters. We are so thankful to the volunteers that helped us put on this amazing show, and the vendors for being such awesome, crafty folks! We are proud to be a part of such a crafty culture here in Denver.

This year's Holiday Handmade was filled with irresistible goodies of all kinds.

The Denver Handmade Alliance provided 100 totally sweet swag bags again this year filled with handmade goodies from local crafters. The first 50 folks through the door each day received one and by the time we opened the doors there were close to 300 people in line! We wished we had a prize for everyone who braved the chilly weather.

Some folks came prepared for waiting for their tote. Here is a tip for next year--lawn chairs and hot tea!

It was nice and cozy inside the craft fair with over 4500 holiday shoppers over the course of two days.

If you missed the show or forgot to pick something up while you were there be sure to check out our Holiday Handmade 2010 vendor list online.

Mark your calendar for Holiday Handmade 2011--Friday, December 2nd and Saturday, December 3rd!
