Artisans at the Arboretum
Talk about shopping with a view. Made Cleveland is partnering with Kirtland’s Holden Arboretum this coming weekend, to bring you a market featuring 18 local vendors such as Venus In Apothica, Peachy Kei, The Home Pantry and many others. Explore the beautiful, expansive grounds of the botanical gardens or go on a scavenger hunt between shopping.
"All of the vendors are nature-centric and use sustainable materials," says Made Cleveland's owner Ash O'Connor. "We're really excited for this partnership. We wanted to hand-select vendors that emulate the ethos of the arboretum."

From Nov. 26 to Dec. 23, this market will feature interactive events such as live glass blowing demonstrations from Larchmere Fire Works along with a showcase of curated gifts for you and your loved ones.
