Forget the mall madness and the oh-so-lonely online shopping this year. Instead, create your own holiday fun by coming to the Locally Made Market!
Cary Magazine is partnering with the Locally Made Market this holiday season because we believe in shopping local, supporting artisans, and making a difference by keeping shopping dollars within our own community.
“Locally Made Market serves to showcase local artisans and their handmade work. We focus on diverse, high-quality and original creations,” said market founder Susan Silvers, a 2016 Cary Magazine Mover & Shaker, and a visual arts teacher at Cary High School.
“Locally Made Market was started to provide local artisans a chance to connect with the public in Cary,” she said. “Our area is overflowing with creative talent, and our hope is to make local hand-created goods more accessible to the community.”
Locally Made Market will take place on Sunday, Dec. 3 from noon to 4 p.m., at The Mayton Inn in downtown Cary, featuring the works of 36 local artisans including Silver. Cary Magazine will introduce you to some of these vendors in upcoming enewsletters.
Bonus news: The first 50 shoppers at Locally Made Market on Dec. 3 will receive a limited edition watercolor print of The Mayton Inn, created by Amy Richards Illustration. Each purchase you make at the market also enters you for additional giveaways at the end of the day.
Gather your friends and make it a gift-to-yourself outing by indulging in brunch before or after your shopping, at Verandah restaurant and Highball Bar, both located inside The Mayton Inn.
Silver notes that the December event will mark the largest Locally Made Market to date.
“Mark your calendars now,” she said. “We’ve lined up 36 of the most talented artisans around to provide a high quality and fun shopping experience.”
We’ll see you there!
