Celebrate The Holidays With Handmade Gifts From Craftland
Craftland on Westminster Street Offers Stylish and Functional Handmade Items from Local and National Artists
Providence, RI — Craftland kicks off its 11th annual Holiday Show on Friday, November 23, 2012 with thousands of gifts for everyone on your list. Craftland, located at 235 Westminster Street, is the city’s premiere destination for handmade goods by independent artists—from one-of-a-kind craft items to fine art pieces. Half of the 170 artists featured in this year’s show are local to the area. Shoppers can feel satisfied that their gift-buying dollars are not only supporting a local business, they also sustain the region’s creative talent, keeping our economy both strong and vibrant.
Craftland shoppers will find an expanded store filled-to-the-brim with thousands of thoughtfully made items from handmade housewares and masterfully-crafted handbags, to adorable stuffed animals, cozy crocheted and knitted goods, one-of-a-kind art pieces, beautiful books, clothing, and our now-famous print wall, featuring dozens of screen printed pieces in a variety of prices and sizes. With prices from $1 to $300, there are handmade goodies for every budget. As always, purchases from Craftland are tax-free, and parking is easier than you think. Park at the Grant’s Block parking lot for two hours free with a validation stamp from Craftland. More parking information can be found on the In Downcity website.
