"A Handmade Holiday"

"Craft lives here,” in the South Wedge, according to Little Button Craft & Press owner Madelyn Posey, so it’s only fitting that the shop hosts the Wedge’s very first craft show just in time for the holiday season.

"A Handmade Holiday” will bring together more than 50 local artists and makers, who will offer their handmade items to fulfill your present-buying needs. Slated for Saturday Dec. 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the craft show will coincide with the “It’s a Wonderful Life in the South Wedge” festival.

Originally, “A Handmade Holiday” could only accept 20 vendors due to space limitations at the Historic German House, but due to the overwhelming response of local artists and the support from St. Boniface Church, the holiday craft show will include an additional 30 vendors in the church basement.

“A Handmade Holiday” is just the latest push for craft in the South Wedge with businesses, such as Little Button, Purple Painted Lady, Swiftwater Brewing, McCann’s Meats, Abode, thread and Fashion Fitted, adding their sense of craft into the creative neighborhood – whether it’s art, beer, food, home décor or fashion. Posey saw the upcoming holiday season as just another reason to “call all the crafters together.

“Little Button is about all things handmade and while we’re still new, we want to bring all crafty crafters to the Wedge for a handmade holiday show and to check us out,” she said.

The majority of the vendors are from right here in the Flower City with many of their items made from their own hands and in small batches, infusing personality into each individual item. Why buy from a big-box store when there’s a crowd of crafters that provides truly local and authentic gifts?

While you’re in the South Wedge that day, you can also support local businesses, who will offer special deals that day for “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Little Button, although not a vendor, will be open from 12-7 p.m. selling event T-shirts designed by Posey herself for $5.

Attendees can also explore the eclectic neighborhood by purchasing Christmas trees and wreathes in Star Alley, listening to carolers, taking a carriage ride, meeting Santa and participating in holiday karaoke at LUX Lounge.

The first 50 attendees will receive a free reusable bag filled with small items from the artists and local businesses. See you there! rf
