It’s time to do some walking, visiting and shopping in a festive atmosphere that will help you fill any Christmas wish list, and buy for that person who has just about everything. Avoid the “Black Friday” crowds, support “Small Business Saturday”, or shop after church on Sunday this year at “Christmas Made in the South”. The 27th annual event is coming to the Jacksonville, Florida’s Prime Osborn Center on November 27 – 29, 2015. Take a look at a video which will show you some of the fun and excitement that you’ll experience.
“Christmas Made in the South” allots you to purchase handcrafted items that come with special stories and descriptions. Everything is unique and is the exhibitor’s own work and designs (not commercially made or manufactured). Purchase directly from the artists & craftsmen who will be there to talk with you about their craft & share their stories. There are many unique booths to explore and hidden treasures which you can’t buy at big department stores. Handmade, one-of-a-kind designs populate the booths that will fill the Prime Osborn Center. You’ll be able to find gifts for men, children, unique clothes, hand bags, glass ornaments, jewelry, breathtaking art, gourmet food, diverse entertainment, photography, loads of Christmas decorations and more. Mostly all of the products are “Made in the USA”.
The show is focused on keeping the world of fine artisans and craftspeople alive. Exhibitors will be there all three days demonstrating and selling their handcrafted works of art. You may even desire to get one-little-something for yourself. CMITS comes around once-a-year so that you will enjoy yourself. If you would like to see some of the excitement from previous shows, take a look at the slide show to the right of this column.
