    Small gifts make a big impact and truly can lift people’s spirits this holiday season. Every time a stocking is opened, whether by a child or an adult, new memories are added with every gift revealed. Whether that be beautifully hand-painted games to play or ornaments to hang on the tree, stocking stuffers can help the holidays be remembered. Here are a few stocking stuf


    fers that you can find at the Holiday Markets (Dec. 6th, Dec. 13th, and Dec. 20th) at the Downtown Farmers’ Market:

    This hand painted tic-tac-toe set from Paloma Street Creatives will easily fit into a stocking. This is a low-tech game, which means no batteries required, so it can bring joy and togetherness at any time!

    What is a Christmas Tree without Christmas ornaments? These beautiful hand-painted ornaments by LEdwardsArt can add wonderful memories to anyone’s tree.

    Also, don’t forget the sweets. Meshel’s Treats has deliciously decorative holiday pretzels and marshmallow stirrers that everyone would love to pull out of their stockings. Also, don’t forget about your dog, she will have dog treats for their stockings as well!

    It’s the everyday things that count. These soaps, lotions, and chapstick are all handmade Goat Milk products from Nuluv, and will make a great stocking gift that can be used at any season!

    Custom iron work can be found at our Holiday Markets. These beautiful keychains from Iron Dingler Forge are beautiful gifts to give. They even have small bags of coal (if you want to play joke on the kids).

    Speaking of kids, Chels Marie Traveling Boutique has got you covered. They have fun-shaped Crayon Jewels and Robot Cray/ons that will easily fit into any stocking to spark creativity this holiday season.

    And, if you’re ever in a jam, try using it. These small beautifully decorated jams from Judies Jams & Jelly can go from the stocking to the breakfast table.

    Don’t forget that these are only a few of the stocking stuffers that you can find from both our regular vendors and our added Holiday Market vendors, so come by and look around!
