There’s still time to celebrate the holiday season by supporting North Carolina artisans!

Due to snow and ice, this year’s annual Locally Made Market Holiday has been rescheduled to Sunday, Dec. 16, from noon to 4 p.m. at The Mayton Inn in downtown Cary.

Locally Made Market is a free and family-friendly event, so kids and adults are welcome to browse the array of pop-up shops around the hotel, at 301 S. Academy St.

Lizzie Chadbourne of Lo & Behold has been a vendor at Locally Made Market for a few years, and she says she is looking forward being back this weekend. Lo & Behold’s non-toxic and all-natural skincare products are handmade locally and can be found in local salons and spas around the Triangle. Lo & Behold partners with local artists to create a unique and original label for each product.

“My favorite part of being a vendor at local craft shows is seeing loyal repeat customers, meeting new customers, and seeing my maker friends,” Chadbourne said. “No matter how much our business grows, it is still incredibly special to see those folks who have loved Lo & Behold from the beginning.”

This year, owner and market director Susie Silver has expanded the event to feature 50 local makers whose talents span the full spectrum of design and creativity. In other words, your Christmas shopping list is covered.

Among the vendors, you’ll find talented and passionate artisans from all over the state who have mastered their art, be it creating unique jewelry, kitchenware or sweet treats to nibble on as you walk around.

The first 50 shoppers will receive a limited edition art print of The Cary Theater created by Amy May Pop Art. And with every purchase, attendees are entered to win giveaways at the end of the event.

“When you support this market, you are completely supporting small businesses and our community,” said Chadbourne.
