6 unique gifts made by local creators

There are a number of winter markets coming up over the next few weeks, but there’s one market that features more than two dozen local makers, bakers, and artists.

The Seattle Restored Winter Market takes place in Downtown Seattle on Saturday, Dec. 9 from 12-6 p.m. at 5th and Pike (1501 5th Ave). The event is free (yes, FREE!), but RSVP is encouraged!

To help prepare you for the Winter Market, we asked our partners at Seattle Restored to curate a sample of goods.

Here’s what you could discover…

Coupe Ceramics | By Emily Criswell

Coupe Ceramics offers timeless wheel-thrown tableware and household items that are functional, artful, and sustainable.

Ceramicist Emily Criswell works out of her home studio to create pieces that add beauty and delight to the everyday rituals of life, seamlessly merging aesthetics with practicality.

Irene Aiko | By Irene Aiko

The Seattle Restored Winter Market will feature sweet and silly greeting cards designed by Irene Aiko. Pick up a single card to include with a gift, or buy a whole set to give to a loved one.

The greeting cards are printed from Irene’s original watercolor paintings by a local, independent woman-owned business on eco-friendly and post-consumer paper.

Irene will also be selling stickers, art prints, and children’s books!

Melted Porcelain | By Malia Peoples

Malia Peoples of Melted Porcelain makes uplifting good luck charms for everyone. She will have handmade porcelain earrings, necklaces, bracelets, hair clips, and fully sculpted rings available for sale at the Winter Market. A unique gift for yourself or a loved one, these pieces are truly one-of-a-kind!

All The Jawns | By Joe Norris

Joe Norris will be at the Winter Market selling his original Hot Jawn Chili Sauce.

As the name suggests, Hot Jawn Chili Sauce is a versatile, all-purpose condiment that brings a little kick and a lot of flavor to your favorite foods. You will keep finding new ways to eat it. Toss it over wings. Dip it with chips and fries. Squeeze it on your pizza, tacos, eggs, burgers, and cheesesteaks. The possibilities are endless.

Mia Wyatt Glass | By Mia Wyatt

One of Mia Wyatt’s suncatchers would make an elegant and striking addition to anyone’s home — and as we locals know, we need to catch as much sun as we can get in the PNW. These mood-boosting works of art bring beauty and brightness to any space, regardless of whether or not the sun is out.

Mia will also be selling dangles and ornaments at the Winter Market.

Lovely Latina Shop | By Reyn Puente

Lovely Latina Shop’s festive crowns are decorated with durable fabric flowers and leaves – perfect for festivals, Halloween, Day of the Dead, bridal, maternity, engagement photos, and so much more! Drawing on her Latin roots, Reyn Puente strives to create a cultural experience through Lovely Latina Shop.

Reyn will have a wide variety of handmade artificial flower crowns available, along with earrings, and other small accessories.

Explore the Seattle Restored Winter Market Saturday, Dec. 9. You’ll be able to wrap up all of your holiday shopping in one day while also directly supporting our local creative community.
