Impressions from the Winter Village
It was the first really cold day of the Winter, so the Local Maker Market, which arose out of converted shipping containers right beside the skating rink at Evergreen Brick Works truly deserved to be called "Winter Village". At least the fire pits and the hot apple cider kept us warm, and the food from all those gourmet food trucks supplied the energy for a full day of interacting with Christmas shoppers. Card sets were popular among those who still needed a gift for a friend or a mom-in-law, and lots of last-minute shoppers picked up a Christmas card or two. Many customers were also drawn to the origami magnets. Thanks to everyone who stopped by despite the cold! Here are a few impressions from December 19.
