Get a Start on Your Holiday Shopping
Craftacular's 5th annual holiday shopping event in downtown Lincoln is on Wednesday, November 28 from 5pm-9pm at the Cornhusker Hotel. Come and experience a curated selection of the best and brightest artists, independent designers and crafters from Nebraska and beyond. It is a shunning mass-produced fare in favor of handmade goods. It offers your own local version of Etsy.
Original handmade items will be on display such as mixed media, acrylic, pen and ink and watercolor artwork; ceramics; jewelry; screenprinted and letterpressed cards; women's and children's accessories, baby clothing, photography, leather goods, and ornaments. Works range from $5 to $80, making the Cornhusker Hotel the temporary hotspot for handmade but affordable Christmas gifts.
With swag bags full of goodies from the artists for the first 50 attendees and a raffle for donated artwork by the exhibiting artists, is yet another reason to come and enjoy the evening at Craftacular. The proceeds from the raffle will be supporting Lincoln's art scene by being donated to the Lincoln Arts Council for future arts programming.
Make it a Handmade Holiday! With 43 artist vendors, a cocktail lounge, 2 musical acts, food, and special appearances by Mrs. Claus and the Silvertones, this event is not to miss!
