Craft Faire 2020: Virtual Vendors!

This coming weekend on Nov. 20 and 21 would usually be our Christmas Craft Faire featuring about 70 artisan vendors displaying and selling a delightful variety of items for seasonal gift giving. Our discussions with our vendors started back in late August and it has become more clear over the months since that due to Covid-19 we just cannot gather safely in this kind of indoor crowd situation this season. (***see below)

So we reached out to our vendors recently offering to create an online contact list for folks who are ready, willing, and able to sell their works to you this season. Here’s a list of previous Christmas Craft Faire vendors who have provided their contact info. We hope to add more to the list as they come in. So take a look and reach out and purchase something nice from Golden and around the Basin. You can also shop in person for the works of many of these artisans at the Art Gallery of Golden.
