This year, however, founder Angela Stewart knew a holiday show wouldn’t work with COVID-19 restrictions.

Instead, she’s opening a pop-up holiday store in the Village at Meridian from November 27th through December 28th. Products from over 55 artists from across the Treasure Valley, McCall, and Sun Valley areas will be for sale.

Items include everything from hand-blown glass, apparel, paper goods, textiles, leatherwork, artisan foods, bath and body, home and garden decor, jewelry, and more.

“I have always wanted to do something like this, COVID just gave us the push to do it this year,” Stewart said.

Small businesses include Banana Ink, Lit & Co, Wear Boise, Ladybug Press and many more. “Shopping local really makes a huge impact!” she said.

“We also have a few ‘little makers’ these young entrepreneurs are the future and we love having their creations for sale in the shop.”

If you don’t want to go to the shop, many products are for sale on Handmade Idaho’s website. They will also offer curbside pickup.
