Selling handmade art and crafts by more than 40 Maine artists from November 15th – December 23rd

Waterville, Maine —The Common Street Arts Gallery will once again become a Winter Wonderland as Waterville Creates! turns the Common Street Arts’ gallery into a Holiday Retail Shop featuring the artistic creations of more than 40 Maine artists. Exquisite jewelry, to hand-forged cutlery, to delicate fiber arts, there is something for everyone at the Holiday Bazaar. The Bazaar will feature special artist “pop-up” events throughout the holiday season, like fresh holiday wreaths on December 2nd; for a complete list of participating artists, hours and special events visit

“The Holiday Bazaar, now in its 5th season, is one of our most popular events and is a wonderful opportunity for Maine artists and craftspeople to exhibit and sell their work,” says Patricia King, vice president of programs and operations for Waterville Creates!  “The Holiday Bazaar also serves as an important Common Street Arts’ fundraiser, where a percentage of the proceeds help underwrite the educational and exhibition programs at CSA.  Community members can support artists and Common Street Arts when they shop at the Bazaar—it’s a win-win for everyone.”

Among the items on display are beautifully crafted jewelry, ceramics, knives, books, blankets, holiday ornaments and cards, winter hats, and festive felted animals—the most memorable holiday gifts are available at Common Street Arts!
