Visitors can purchase a unique gift made by a number of local artisans, like Cambium and Hoop, Project Warmth and Broken Leaded Glass. Each business represented at the event is local to Dayton and plays a larger role in the artistic community. 

Handmade Holiday Dayton will also be asking for donations to help two community organizations, Camp Mariposa and The Huffman Project, that do charity work in Montgomery County.
