Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas: Penns Valley Gift Guide! Each day, from November 26 – December 7, we’ll be highlighting a local business where you might find “just the right” treasures to give friends and family. Let’s give back to our community this Christmas: buy local!
The Handmade Holiday Market returns to Merry Millheim for its second year featuring the area’s best artisans. The market promises a diverse set of hand-crafted items from a variety of mediums and is a great place to find one-of-a kind gifts for the holiday season. You’ll find it in the Brementown Ballroom on Main St.
Take a look at this fantastic list of vendors: Daystar Designs, Ephemeral Pillages, Thankful Sage Farm School, Eleanor Grace Design, Blueberry Hill Fitness (Gluten- and Dairy- Free Goodies for humans and doggies), Rebecca Gaffron’s jewelry, goodies, writings, etc., Golden Retriever Rescue’s knitted items, Frog Hollow Farms’ felted items and dyed, organic wool; Jaqueline Bareiss’ original jewelry, Gus’s Diddley Bows, Happy Valley Woodworkers, Dana Morrison Designs, Space Paste Press, Tamarack Farms , and the East Penns Valley Library.
One of our favorite vendors is Gus’s Diddley Bows. These one-string cigar box guitars are handmade with lots of musical passion. Gus will have an assortment at the event, and can make custom diddley bows if you have a special design in mind. Check out how he rocks this thing and then tell me you don’t want one:
Remember: there is only one string. Amazing!
So, we’re all about the Handmade Holiday Market in Millheim. With the promise of spontaneous caroling and dancing, we are so there. You?
