The Maker City is open for your holiday business

Both the The Maker City Holiday Gift Guide and the Maker City Holiday Monday Marketplace on Instagram have launched.

The Maker City organization in Knoxville has announced its fourth annual Holiday Gift Guide and Holiday Monday Marketplace.

Begun during the first year of the coronavirus pandemic as a way to give shoppers easy access to unique, locally-made gifts, the online tradition has continued as a fun way to put Knoxville’s makers and their handcrafted wares right at the fingertips of holiday shoppers.

  • The Maker City Holiday Gift Guide is a curated collection from the more than 400 artisans and makers of The Maker City Directory. Categories include Dwell, Custom Experience, Eat & Drink, Eye Candy, Cozy, Nature, Animal Lover, Stocking Stuffers, the Littles, and Where to Shop Locally.
  • The Maker City Holiday Monday Marketplace on Instagram is an interactive weekly online auction, with shoppers bidding over a 12-hour period for a chosen item. Those who like a little friendly competition will find it here, and 100 percent of the winning bid goes to the maker. Each Monday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., five or more items chosen from more than 50 area makers will be featured, including stained glass artwork from The Glass Mavens; ceramics from Scottielynne Pottery and Treehouse Pottery; jewelry from Lucky Girl Eleven and candles from Nest; and a Canary Wood & Walnut endgrain cutting board from Headtilts Boardworks. Girls Gotta Eat Good and Amy Treats have delicious baked goods, and photographer Cassie Leigh Photography will fulfill a one-hour portrait session. Many other sellers will be showcased, and sharp-eyed bidders can come away with truly unique gifts for their loved ones.
