Hecho a Mano

When: Fri., Dec. 4, 6-9 p.m., Sat., Dec. 5, 12-6 p.m. and Sun., Dec. 6, 12-6 p.m. 2015

Amid the season of store-bought wares and impersonal gift cards, the Guadalupe rises to the occasion with a holiday market that champions all things handmade. A dependable solution for those question marks on your Yuletide list, Hecho a Mano runs the gamut from candles and trinkets to folk art and fine jewelry crafted by 20-plus artists and artisans selected by a panel of jurors. After tempting early birds with a Friday preview ($15), the 29th annual event takes over Galería Guadalupe for a festive weekend of eclectic shopping and browsing.

Price: $2 (or two canned goods)
