2017 Craft Lake City Gift Guide

\With this holiday season, there are many local markets full of locally made treasures, but in case you missed the holiday market season, or prefer to shop online, we’ve put together our second annual Craft Lake City gift guide. Shopping local provides us with the opportunity to give a unique, thoughtful and handmade gift. Take advantage of these abundant opportunities with our gift guide made up of the work from former Craft Lake City artisans. We’ve chosen just a few of our favorite creations from some of the best around.
