Returning for its tenth year, the Deluxe Winter Market is an annual marketplace featuring handmade gifts and wares from mostly Oklahoma-based makers and artists. Deluxe Winter Market is a one-day only event, Saturday, November 25, 2017, from 11 am to 5 pm, held inside Leadership Square in downtown Oklahoma City. My wife and I go every year, usually getting several gifts for friends and family there.

The event will feature gifts for everyone on your list, all handmade by local and national artists and makers in what has become an Oklahoma City holiday shopping tradition. The Market stands out from the other holiday shopping experiences in OKC because of the opportunity to connect with makers, as well as find unique items, such as a photo studio offering authentic ambrotype and tintype photos. No resellers are allowed, and all items are handcrafted or artist-made.

In my video, I interviewed Co-Founder and Director, Sara Cowan; and vendor, Blake Behrens. I was supposed to have a third person, which I was going to interview today, however, they got sick and I didn’t have time to reschedule another interview. With tomorrow being Thanksgiving, I went ahead and finished the video for release today.

If you’re supporting Small Business Saturday, I wrote this local deals guide on the subject.

Have a great Thanksgiving!
