Finish your Christmas shopping all in one place, the Festival of Arts & Crafts Show at the Tinley Park Convention Center December 6-7, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Inn Suites at Midway Hotel!
Can’t find a gift for the newspaper guy and Grandma and Uncle Josh? The Festival of Arts & Crafts Show has something for every taste: beauty, kitsch, nostalgia, art, whimsy. The event showcases 180 booths of hand-crafted items, from exhibitors from five states!
You can peruse (and buy) water colors, sports-themed gifts, scenic photography, stained glass, carved fishing lures, metal and ceramics! How about hand-crafted chocolates? Would you like my address so you can send me some?
And there’s that Louisiana Cyprus knee carved Santa Claus you and the family always wanted! The Festival of Arts & Crafts also features yard art and yard furniture, calligraphy, painted windows, candles, lamps made from wine bottles (I’m not kidding), doll furniture, wearable art, purses and all kinds of holiday décor. All this for three bucks, kids eleven and under free!
