HOMEWOOD, Ill. – The holiday arrives in the southern suburbs, where Fetching Holiday Market brings together more than 75 artists showcasing handmade items from ceramics to ironwork.
“We have candles, we have handmade knits, we have these beautiful robots that are handmade by a local artist,” Pam Dennis from Fetching holiday market said.
Among them is Macrame artist Cornelia Baum.
“I always call this Abby because she’s my niece. If she’s watching, she’s going to kill me for saying that. , because Abby is like that, ”Baum said.
The market, one of many in the area in the weeks leading up to the end of the year, is also a great way to avoid supply chain problems and shipping by trading locally with small businesses.
“We have so many artisans here who come here from all over the Midwest and sometimes even further afield,” Dennis said.
That includes Patricia Talbott and her range of fragrances.
“I did not like perfume, so I made a fragrance that is without alcohol or water. I realized why I did not like them because fragrances in the bottle are 80 percent alcohol and water, so I created pure fragrance oils that last from dawn to sunset, ”Talbott said.
With live music, food and drinks, it’s a great way to showcase life with more normal activities during the second pandemic holiday season.
