Christkindlmarkt

Old World Holiday Market; vendors with crafts & baked goods for sale, artisan demos. Featuring the work of select artisans and crafters, with unique, affordable and quality hand-crafted gifts, many of which will not be found anywhere else. Shoppers will find a variety of items including fiber and fabric arts, children's wear, upcycled mittens and sweaters, woodworking, candles, soaps, rugs, jewelry, home d├ęcor and Christmas decorations as well as specifically Old World European folk art such as Scherenschnitte (scissor cuttings), Kerbschnitte (chip-carving in wood), and Holzschnitte (wood-carvings), plus glass German Christmas ornaments, and Swiss baked goods.

Samichlaus, Switzerland's version of St. Nick, will be making appearances at 10:30 am, 12:30 pm and 2:30 pm both days of the market, visiting with children and shoppers, checking his large book of the year's past infractions. Children of all ages should be on the lookout for Samichlaus' partner, Schmutzli, who makes sure children haven't been too naughty during the year.
