“Please join the Capital City Craft Company for their Holiday Handmade Market at the Duplex Diner! The Holiday Handmade Market is the only indoor holiday artisan market featuring 100% local Metro Area artists and crafters.

If you’re looking to find the perfect gift for your friend that already has everything; or a meaningful present for your mom; or you simply want to support your local community this holiday season… plan a visit to The Duplex Diner on Saturday, December 3rd from 12 PM – 5 PM.

Join DC-based artists and crafters to offer one-of-a-kind pieces to community art lovers. The Handmade Holiday Market features beautiful, modern knitted accessories from Smoking Haute; hand sculpted ceramic animals, monsters and mythical beasts from Red & Main; handcrafted fine silver jewelry by Everything Zen Jewelry; stunning handcrafted stationary from Modern Ink Stationery; unique photography-art from EHL Creations; handmade journals and sketchbooks from sahabo; and so much more.

Not only do we have an amazing array of talented artisans lined up, but the Market will also feature a Janky Sweater decorating station, a gift-wrapping station by DC’s own Wrap Gurl, as well as delectable food and beverages from The Duplex.

The Market also offers:

· FREE admission

Conveniently located on 18th Street NW, in the heart of Adams Morgan, the Holiday Handmade Market’s mission is to offer quality, handmade, creative gifts that support small businesses in DC. So, take the entire family to The Duplex! And, grab some lunch while you’re there. For a map of the area, click 2004 18th Street NW.
