The INDIEana Handicraft Exchange will finish out the year with one last “mini” event on Friday, December 4.
The Mass Ave Merchants Association has invited the IHE to participate in their annual First Friday Holiday Hoopla. In conjunction with the gallery openings, sales, parties and other events on Mass Ave, the IHE will have 46 vendors, live music and raffles at the Chatham Center, located just three blocks off of Mass Ave, at the corner of 9th and East.
The way from Mass Ave to the Chatham Center will be lit by the beautiful King’s Park white rainbarrel luminaries. Folks can make the quick walk over from Mass Ave to our building, or they can catch the shuttle, which will be running at no charge that evening for the Holiday Hoopla, and be dropped off directly in front of the Chatham Center. There is also plenty of street parking around the building, should patrons want to drive directly there.
The event will run from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and is FREE and open to all ages. This is a great chance to finish holiday shopping early, and to make sure you get unique, high-quality, handmade gifts. You’ll purchase directly from the artist and will be able to ask questions about the materials and methods used in their creation. Many artists also accept custom orders, so don’t hesitate to inquire if you don’t see exactly what you are looking for.
Bundle up and bring the whole family. We will provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Hope to see you there!
(Note: The Chatham Center is also this year’s location for the Indy Winter Farmers Market. November 14th through April 24th. Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.)
