INDIEana Handicraft Exchange Winter Mini

Want to be everyone's favorite this holiday season?  Here's an idea:  Do your holiday shopping at the INDIEana Handicraft Exchange Winter Mini in the gym during the Harrison Center's Grey Gardens First Friday event.  Guaranteed to be more fun than the mall, and with over 30 vendors peddling everything from Frittle Candy to handmade growler bags to beautifully carved pipes, you're sure to find the perfect gift for even the quirkiest loved one . . . and maybe a little something for yourself, too. ihe 3 for blog

The Harrison Center has partnered with the IHE since fall of 2008, and the popular modern craft fair now presents two events at the HCA each year - one the 2nd Saturday in June in conjunction with the Independent Music + Art Festival (IMAF) and then again with the Winter Mini on the First Friday in December.

"The INDIEana Handicraft Exchange is a contemporary craft fair that consciously celebrates modern handmade goods, the relationship between creator and consumer, and local, alternative economies. The IHE is quickly becoming a notable stop on the indie craft fair circuit, which includes events such as the Renegade Craft Fairs in Chicago, Brooklyn, Austin, San Francisco, Los Angeles and London, Indie Craft Experience in Atlanta, Stitch Rock in Delray Beach, Florida, Art vs. Craft in Milwaukee, Detroit Urban Craft Fair in Michigan and Art Star Craft Bazaar in Philadelphia, among others."
Come to Grey Gardens on Friday, December 6th; check out the galleries and open studios of the Harrison Center; and get some cool holiday gifts for your friends and family.  You'll be glad you did and they will, too!
The IHE Winter Mini hours are 5-10pm.
