Winter Giftopolis, the indoor, winter incarnation of Concord’s award-winning Concord Arts Market, is set for this Friday, Dec. 5, at 6:30 p.m. Open hours run until 11 p.m. for this one-night-only holiday shopping event. Giftopolis is intentionally scheduled to run concurrently with Concord’s annual Midnight Merriment downtown holiday shopping night, which includes the entire downtown area.
Just like its summer counterpart, the Winter Giftopolis features handmade gifts from Concord, the state and special guests from the region. Glass, fine art, unique wearables from punk to pretty, ornaments, holiday-themed gifts, upcycled materials, photography, quilts, tie-dyed and other hand-dyed textiles, soaps, handwoven textiles, jewelry, dog treats, pottery and more will all be featured in the antique stable-turned-atrium at 7 Eagle Square. Brand new this year at Giftopolis is the “Winter Giftopolis Bookshop” featuring the work of local authors.
The perennial goal of Giftopolis is to promote genuinely handmade work, created by artisans who reside in our local communities. It’s as “made in USA as you can get,” said event producer Katy Brown Solsky, “Shopping local is an issue that goes beyond trends and asks us to really commit to a particular set of values, one that binds us to our communities in a positive and impactful way.”
Admission is free, and the atrium is wheelchair accessible. Winter Giftopolis is a production of Granite State Arts Market.
