16th Annual Holiday Store

Holiday Store 2017 groupNovember 3 – December 30, 2017

What began in 2002 as a tiny pop-up shop with a few local artists has blossomed into the Heights Arts 16th Annual Holiday Store, featuring creative items by about 100 Northeast Ohio visual artists and artisans, writers, and musicians.

“In addition to ceramics, jewelry, art on paper and glass by popular Cleveland favorites such as Mark Yasenchak, Catherine Butler, Julie Edberg, and Sue Berry, we’re thrilled about the variety of new works from more than 20 new artists, ranging from needle-felted animals by Erin Carlson to handcrafted ceramicware from Amy Halko and collage prints from Nicole Schneider,” noted Courtney Young, store manager for the nonprofit arts organization. Visitors will also find handmade artist cards and ornaments, photography, handknits and printed tees, artisan items for the home and littlest family members, plus local music CDs and chapbooks by Cleveland poets.

New this year is a gift registry, so visitors can jot down the items they’d love to receive for holiday gift-giving, and friends or family members can access when they stop in. Heights Arts has also commissioned handmade Judaica, thanks to funding from the Mandel Foundation, and will have a custom ceramic menorah and pewter mezuzot available for order.
Open seven days a week through December 30, the Holiday Store is stocked with new, handmade items on a weekly basis, so all are encouraged to support local artists by shopping early and often. Artists also volunteer their time to help visitors in the store and share information about their craft.


A Heights Arts members-only preview will be held Friday, November 3 from 5-7 p.m., with a public reception for the entire community from 7-9 p.m. the same evening. Special holiday shopping nights are planned throughout the season, including “Manly Mondays” on November 20 and December 11, when significant others can savor local brews, shop from their gift list, and enjoy complimentary gift wrapping for all purchases.
