Holiday Gift Markets: Shop local all weekend...and beyond!
Lincoln Center Hall of Gifts
Lincoln Center, Fort Collins
Just an hour's drive to the north, the Lincoln Center's annual sale is huge, drawing from a pool of fifty artisans, many of them showing work not often seen south of the Fort. While you're there, drop by the center's Hall of Trees to bid on a bevy of artist-decorated trees up for auction.
Larger still is the Foothills Art Center's Holiday Art Market, which has been drawing crowds of shoppers for 35 years. The Colorado-centric selection includes works from 100 artists, and special programs are scheduled throughout the show's run, including kids' activities and artist demonstrations.
