Aaahh! Real hand-crafted monsters!

Sometimes the spirit of gift-giving gets lost in the mindless quest for the latest gadget. What happened to the simple pleasure of giving something unique from the heart?

The Wintry Market is setting up shop on Saturday, Nov. 5, and Sunday, Nov. 6, in the Ballet Idaho auditorium and will feature 30 vendors offering unique and affordable handmade goods.

"Boise seems to be really interested in handmade art and crafts in their shops, so we thought a market—especially a holiday market—would be something that there was a need for," said event co-organizer Amy Pence-Brown.

You can get a jump on holiday shopping and there will be a kid-friendly recycled art corner to amuse the little ones while you browse. Refreshments will be provided by Big City Coffee and B29 Streatery food truck, which will be parked on site.

In these days of mass-produced mania, get back to the core of what really matters and support your local economy by shopping handmade. Not only will you be able to give thoughtful and unique gifts, but many items are made from repurposed material, which is like giving a gift back to nature.
