The Holiday Artisan Market is Friday, November 27th and Saturday the 28th from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. at the Fort Collins Senior Center at 1200 Raintree Drive. Approximately 100 artisans and crafters share their handmade creations at one of the largest craft fairs in the area. My crafty wife and her mother go every year after thanksgiving.

it's a wonderful alternative to the Black Friday shopping frenzy at the big box department stores. If you are looking for original and unique items for Christmas this year, the Holiday Artisan Market is a good place to start.
